Integrated Energy Therapy (IET)

What is it?

The body remembers what the mind forgets. While the brain remembers facts, the body remembers feelings and sensations. Emotions and sensations are stored in the body & body’s energy field. Negative experiences and emotions stay in the body and can limit health, confidence, creativity life experience and life purpose, prosperity, sexuality, and creativity and ultimately happiness. Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) gets the issues out of your tissues by opening and facilitating the flow of energy (vital life force) within the human body and its energy field. IET painlessly awakens and clears suppressed emotions and experience’s within the body, mind and spirit; assisting the release of old energy patterns and promoting the self healing process.

Why would someone see an IET Practitioner?

This unique method is a gentle, yet powerful support for anyone seeking relief from the discomfort blocked energy can create. IET works to detect and support the release of congested energy from the cellular memory of the body and then assists in clearing the associated energy blockages from the human energy field. Some examples which can lead to blocked energy flow are everyday life situations of; prolonged stress, injury/accidents, surgery, disease, exhaustion, emotional crisis, suppressed feelings, fear, and self-limiting thoughts. Or, childhood traumas of physical or emotional abuse, or having grown up in a dysfunctional or addicted family. As energy blockages are cleared, the energy flow (life force) which has become restricted through physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual trauma is freed and the body, mind and spirit are rebalanced. Releasing stored emotions and limiting energy patterns of your past that are no longer serving you allows for the body’s natural self-healing capabilities and empowers you to move forward.  Often times, clients come away with greater self-awareness and clarity which helps clear resistance to stepping into joy.

What would a Treatment session look like if someone hasn’t attended before?

After filling out a general information form, the client lies on a massage bed, fully clothed with pillow or bolsters for back support and blanket for comfort.   The treatment room is arranged to promote a feeling of relaxation and peace. It is normally quiet with only the addition of soft music and sometimes aroma therapy. The person receiving can focus on themselves, going deep within, and take a break from daily stress and tension. It is common to experience a deep sense of peace and renewal following a treatment. 

It is a whole body treatment so we begin at top of the head with the practitioner gently placing her hands on specific cellular memory points on the body along the spine and finishing at the feet.  Using a light touch and very gentle pressure on the cellular memory points to facilitate the release of stored emotions.   Most people find a treatment very relaxing and may experience the energy as sensations such as warmth, tingling, vibrations, pulsing where the practitioner has placed her hands with some people feeling sensations moving through the body.  Others may become emotional (emotional block releasing) in the form of crying which is very healthy, and then there are some who will not feel much at all and fall asleep or go into a meditative state.  Every person has a different experience and every treatment is different. A treatment session is approximately one hour.   

How does IET work? What is the science underlying the process?

We have energetic pathways in the body that are similar, in a way, to blood flowing thru a vein only it is our energy that is flowing.  In IET, we work with the Integration Channel (pathway) of the bodies cellular memory.  Along this channel is a unique cellular map with 9 memory locations along the spine which are identified as storage areas for suppressed emotions or emotional wounds. These locations include the major organ and endocrine systems of the body.  The IET techniques are based on a using a gentle touch where healing energy is directed into these specific areas on the body. Energy blocks are then released and cleared allowing the unobstructed flow of energy within the body and energy field of the body.  IET is a channeled energy therapy and the practitioner is a vessel through which angelic energy is channeled to gently release energy held on a cellular level within the body for the purpose of aiding self-healing.
