What is I.E.T.?


Simply put, Integrated Energy Therapy® is the art of healing with the pure energy of the Angels. It has been described as one of the “next generation, hands-on, power energy therapy systems that gets the issues out of your tissues for good!”
The principal objective of I.E.T. is to provide safe, gentle, yet powerful, support to release suppressed feelings, and the energy blockages they cause, from our cellular memory. Releasing the blocks allows for self-healing on all levels (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual). IET uses a divine angelic energy ray to work directly with one’s 12-strand spiritual DNA to re-align and re-balance the body. Once the energy field is clear and the body has become re-balanced, we find ourselves free of limitations to our good health, life purpose, prosperity and creativity. 
IET is a complimentary therapy that can be used with other energy techniques. However, IET is meant to compliment, not replace, the care of registered medical and health care professionals. Clients and students are encouraged to continue consulting with their medical professionals when learning IET or receiving IET treatments.

IET Level 2-
Intermediate Attunement: You will receive a special Intermediate Level “energy attunement” that will further open your energy field to the power of Integrated Energy Therapy® Intermediate Level ray. Our Intermediate Level attunement expands, realigns, and restructures the 3rd pair (mental) and 4th pair (karmic) of your 12 Strand DNA. Once attuned to the Intermediate Level IET Ray, you will have the ability to pull physical, emotional, mental, and karmic energy imprints out of the human energy field.

Angelic Heartlinks: Integrated Energy Therapy® W/ Candie Toska

“Healing with the Energy of Angels”. Integrated Energy Therapy®(IET)
You will learn to access the energy of angels through a simple yet powerful process that we call a Heartlink.
Once your Heartlink has been established, you will learn how to send love up to the angelic realm or that specific angel and you will find that the love returned is multiplied from the angels to further assist you in the healing of yourself or others. This Heartlink is invaluable in and of itself, however, when it is used in conjunction with the accessing of the energy system, it becomes extremely powerful and effective.
