IET Basic Level Training - Ithaca

Do you or your clients struggle with chronic tension that seems connected to emotional stress? How often have you addressed stress and tension with body work techniques only to have those same patterns of strain re-emerge? Emotion related to traumas, prolonged anxiety, or difficult experiences is often not fully processed at the time of the event. The body miraculously stores the emotional memory of the event on a cellular level. Subsequent experiences can then trigger that emotion to the surface of consciousness without ever fully releasing it. This negative feedback cycle creates repeating patterns of physical stress. 

IET is a hands-on healing therapy which targets and facilitates the release of stored emotion from the cellular memory of the body through the use of acupressure techniques applied to specific integration points located bilaterally along the spine. It blends effortlessly with other body work techniques, enhancing benefits, gently allowing physical equilibrium to return and producing profoundly healing effects. For those who are interested in the metaphysical aspects of healing modalities, IET also introduces the concept of angelic healing energy and techniques to use that energy to augment the healing power of IET sessions. For those who have no interest in this realm of healing, it is not necessary to believe in or practice the metaphysical aspects this therapy. IET techniques are a powerful approach to facilitate healing with or with out the metaphysical connection.   

In the Basic level training, you learn techniques designed to access and release physical stress related to held emotion that has been stored on a cellular level within the tissue. You will identify power integration points used to facilitate the release of that stored tension from the cellular memory, receive complete training the Basic IET treatment for self and others, a certificate of completion, and a detailed illustrated manual for future reference.
