July 13th 2017 - Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) opens and facilitates the flow of vital life force within the human body and energy field. The IET techniques painlessly awaken and clear core cellular memory which has been suppressed within the body, mind and spirit; assisting the release of old energy patterns and promoting the self healing process.
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 suffering physical or emotional abuse, or growing up in an alcoholic or dysfunctional family.
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 stagnation within the body are physical injury, accidents, surgery, disease, exhaustion, emotional crisis, suppressed feelings, prolonged stress, fear, and self limiting thoughts.
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 blockage from the human energy field. As energy blockages which limit health, life purpose, prosperity and creativity are cleared, the life force which has become restricted through physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual trauma is freed and the body, mind and spirit are rebalanced.
The IET techniques are based on a unique cellular memory map in which nine primary locations are identified as storage areas for the energy of 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 rebalances 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.
An IET session lasts from one to one and a half hours in length. The person receiving relaxes, fully clothed, on a massage table with a pillow or bolster under their knees to protect the low back from undue stress. Blankets and extra pillows are also available to increase comfort. The recipient remains comfortably positioned and facing up for the entire session.
The area in which the session is offered is arranged to promote a feeling of relaxation and peace. It is normally quiet with only the addition of soft music. The person receiving can focus on themselves, going deep within, and take a break from daily stress and tension.
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 walk, or sitting quietly are activities which often serve as a good transition to resuming whatever is planned for the rest of the day.
IET was developed by Stevan J. Thayer. Stevan has been in holistic service since 1989, and is also a Reiki Master, professional rebirther, an ordained Interfaith Minister, nationwide speaker and lecturer. He is the founding director of The Center of Being, Inc. and author of many books including Interview with an Angel and The Healing Angles of the Energy Field.
Stevan and his work with IET have been nationally televised via the PBS Frontline Series and are spreading nationwide. The first IET class was taught in 1994. Today there are IET students in 75 countries around the world including Croatia, Hungary, Denmark, Guatemala, Nepal, Slovenia, Sweden, and Uzbekistan. More than 55,5000 Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and Master-Instructor IET students have been taught and the IET manuals are translated into 9 languages.
