IST is a set of healing techniques based on the inner space of meditation. It has a wide range of applications for healing, clarity, trauma, and personal growth. During a session, people will often regress to very early memories, some pre-verbal, to source and release deep emotional imprints. The term for these imprints is the sanskrit word, samskara. Some people will experience what feels like past lives. In reaching the source of imprints, there is a resolution and the problems that plagued a person often cease to exist.
Other techniques of IST work on the subtle layers of your life force, moving stuck and stagnant energy, similar to acupuncture, and can resolve a number of health disorders.
IST originated as a way to help people move forward on their spiritual path. It has since been adapted to a broad audience and has helped people of all ages, and with varying spiritual and religious beliefs, This includes those with no spiritual or religious inclinations, which was the category I fell into when I first came across IST in 2008.
