Through the practice of Polarity Therapy, I support your whole body-mind process so you can be in touch with more peace, inner stability, and kind responsiveness when experiencing:
Constant thinking/rumination
‣ Lack of energy
Difficulty relaxing and/or sleeping
Suffering with physical or emotional pain
Feeling disconnected
‣ …and more…

If you want to feel more resourced around any of these issues, then you’re in the right place.


Hello reader, my name is Carly Rainé Canant and I help people soften their thoughts, ease into meaningful rest, and restore fluid connectivity throughout their bodies. This promotes more clarity, vitality, and inner peace for them to savor within their embodied experience and radiate upon their loved ones and the world through a presence that is more balanced and authentic.

I’m here to support you in healing from within.

What is Polarity Therapy?

An integrative wellness practice that promotes health and wellbeing by encouraging stability and flow in the dynamic energy balance of body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

Everyone is different but some common benefits are: reduced physical, mental, and emotional tension, feeling more connected to your authentic self, feeling energized from within, and having more resilience to stressful experiences.

Polarity Therapy involves relating with a welcoming and non-judgmental guide who invites you to rest deeply while also cultivating awareness and self-compassion. As your guide, I offer attentive presence and support through skillful communication and therapeutic touch that is informed by the health wisdom of Eastern and Western traditions including Naturopathy, Osteopathy, Anatomy, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Positive Neuroplasticity, and Counseling Psychology.

“I believe that you’re worthy of care  and deserve to know peace, joy, contentment, and connection.”

- Carly Rainé Canant, M.A., E.P.P.

As an integrative wellness practitioner I’m dedicated to encouraging your authentic presence and energetic balance so you can feel better and connect more with your life and loved ones. I water the seeds of attentive and kind presence within you, recognize and honor your unique situation and journey, and offer tools and guidance in the present moment to support you to relax and explore your experience at your own pace.

I’m certified in modern trauma-informed Polarity Therapy (Energy Principles Practitioner, International Polarity Education Alliance; Advanced student and teacher’s assistant with the Polarity Therapy Institute, San Francisco) and have years of experience studying psychology (B.A., Psychology, UC Berkeley; M.A., Expressive Arts Counseling Psychology, CIIS), mindfulness (Buddhist and secular), and physical embodiment practices (physical theater, yoga, circus arts). I call upon all my relevant training and experiences to support you on your healing journey.

What happens in a session?

Your session begins when you arrive and I welcome you into the practice space. We’ll sit together and begin to tune into what’s present for you. I’ll ask how you’ve been these days and what you want to get from our work together that day. After talking and tuning in for 10-15 minutes, we’ll transition to therapeutic touch work. You’ll be invited to lie down fully clothed on a comfy bodywork table and I’ll sit nearby to offer verbal support and, with your permission, therapeutic touch to your feet, head, abdomen, hands, shoulders, etc. based on your unique system and wellness needs. Session work is non-erotic and your consent to be contacted can be withdrawn at anytime. Once the therapeutic touch work is complete, you’ll have a few minutes to simply rest on the table and take in what’s present for you. Once sitting again, I’ll welcome you to reflect on the session and share any final impressions you may have. If you’re interested, I can offer movement and nutrition practices for you to try between sessions in support of your ongoing wellness.

I also provide sessions over Zoom which include many of the same benefits of an in-person session along with self-directed touch.
