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.
In 2017 Brown University established an ongoing study to evaluate the results of Beachwood’s specialized approach. The director of the study stated that the results “are quite remarkable” in treating anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
Deemed “the disruptive technology of therapy” by a corporate client, IET has proven to be highly cost effective, a third of the cost of traditional therapy.
