Beachwood uses Integrative Équine Therapy (IET) for anxiety, trauma, and other stress related illness. With this protocol developed by Lynne Bryan Phipps, clients achieve greater success in a shorter period of time with IET than with conventional therapies, in many cases where previous approaches have failed.
