WHAT IS Integrated Energy Therapy or IET?
Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) is a holistic therapy approach developed by Stevan J. Thayer. The mission of his therapy is to “heal the world one-heart-at-a-time.” The therapy works to increase the flow of life energy in the human body. The therapy techniques attempt to stir up old cellular memories that the body, mind and spirit have suppressed so that the old energy patterns can be changed and the healing process can begin.
Integrated energy therapy is what is called “channeled energy”. The therapy works by channeling universal energy, similar to chi or ki, in order to heal the body. This process is paired with the stimulation and release of any negative energy in the cells by using very gentle pressure to “release the issues from the tissues”, where stagnant energy can be stored.
The techniques of integrated energy healing are based on nine primary energy locations of the body. The healer uses this unique cellular memory map to identify the areas of the body where energy and emotions are suppressed. These energy locations include the chakras (energy centers of the body) as well as major organs of the body. It also shows the location of power points along the spine. Once these locations are identified the energy can be unblocked and released through the healing techniques of integrated energy therapy. Typically there is one main energy blockage in the body that is the cause of discomfort. Once this is located and released, the body’s energy field is able to rebalance. In this sense, integrated energy therapy is a nurturing, gentle way to open up and cleanse the life force and energy field within the human body.
An integrated energy therapy session usually lasts between one to one and a half hours long. The patient is laid on their back, fully clothed on a massage table. Pillows and blankets may be positioned around the body for maximum comfort during the session. The treatment is completed in a peaceful, relaxing environment with very little sound except for the option of soft music playing in the background. During the session you are to relax and forget about the stresses of daily life as the practitioner works to rebalance the energy field of your body. When the session is over, the client is asked to take a moment to absorb the work that has just been completed to the body before sitting up. Typically, you will feel a deep sense of relaxation directly following a treatment, and in increased overall well-being.
Integrated energy therapy is beneficial to anyone who is looking for relief from the pain and discomfort that blocked energy can cause. There are many life experiences that can lead to blocked energy, such as childhood traumas, dysfunctional families, and substance abuse. There are also many more common causes of energy blockage including injuries, emotional breakdowns, illness, surgery, fear, and long-term stress. Integrated energy therapy helps to release these energy blocks and free the life force, promoting a healthy body, mind and spirit.
