Integrated Energy Therapy - IET
A holistic therapy approach developed by Stevan J. Thayer. Steven is also a Reiki Master and co-author of "Interview with an Angel".
I am a Level II IET practitioner and practicing for over 19 years.
Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) is a healing method that focuses on personal empowerment by identifying and clearing energy blockages in the human energy field. An IET session can facilitate healing the pain of the past without having to re-live and experience that past pain.
This unique method provides gentle and powerful support for anyone seeking relief from the discomfort which blocked energy can create. Some examples of life experience which can lead to blocked energy flow within the body are childhood traumas such as physical and sexual abuse, as well as alcoholic and dysfunctional families. Yet, in this stress-laden culture, it is not necessary to have survived a trauma for our bodies to be burdened with energy stagnation. Some common causes of energy blockage within the body are: physical injury, accidents, surgery, disease, exhaustion, emotional crisis, suppressed feelings, prolonged stress, fear, and self limiting thoughts. Integrated Energy Therapy helps to release these energy blocks and free the life force, promoting a healthy body, mind and spirit.
How It Works
The IET techniques are based on a unique cellular memory map in which 9 primary locations are identified as storage areas for suppressed emotion. These locations include the major organ and endocrine systems of the body as well as the chakras. Using gentle therapeutic touch, healing energy is directed into these specific areas on the body. Energy blocks are then released and cleared through the IET techniques and power points located along the spine. As the blockage associated with the original disturbance is located and cleared, the suppressed charge of energy dissipates and re-balances within the field. In this way IET provides a simple, gentle, and nurturing way to open the flow of vital life force within the human body and energy field.
What Is a Session Like?
An IET session usually lasts between one to one and a half hours long. The person is laid on their back, fully clothed on a massage table. Many cushions 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 therapist works to rebalance the energy field of your body. When the session is over, the patient is asked to take a moment to absorb the work that has just been completed to the body before sitting up. The therapist recommends the patient taking an hour of free time off directly following the treatment to allow the body to gradually reenter the world. Typically, you will feel a deep sense of relaxation directly following a treatment, and in increased overall well-being.
What To Expect
Once the session is complete, the person receiving is invited to take a few moments to absorb and integrate the work before beginning to sit up. It is common to experience a deep sense of peace and renewal following a treatment. At least an hour of free time is recommended following the appointment to allow for a gradual reentry into the world. Eating a healthy meal, taking a leisurely walk, or sitting quietly are activities which often serve as a good transition to resuming whatever is planned for the rest of the day.
Integrated Energy Therapy is complementary to other healing modalities and can be used alone or in combination with other holistic or traditional approaches to accelerate your self healing journey.
