Bringing unconscious stress responses into awareness

Guided awareness enables processing and development of a more balanced and integrated state.

By monitoring the pulse response to various indicators, stressors that the body struggles to adapt to are brought into conscious awareness.
When the unconscious is brought into awareness, physiological stress is defused, and healing can take place.

  • What does Etiotherapy treat?

    You may benefit from Etiotherapy if you are experiencing depression, anxiety, insomnia, hyperreactive emotional responses, PTSD, chronic pain, health concerns that have plateaued or have not responded to various forms of treatment, or chronic health concerns with notable periods of a ‘flare-up’ of symptoms.

  • Am I candidate for Etiotherapy?

    Only a practitioner trained in etiotherapy can determine whether or not you are a good candidate. Within your visit, the Doctor will determine if you are a good candidate and, if applicable, will recommend how to incorporate it into your treatment plan.

  • How much does Etiotherapy cost?

    Etiotherapy is typically incorporated into a Naturopathic visit; the cost will depend on the length of the visit.

  • How many Etiotherapy treatments are typically required?

    The response to treatment varies, depending on the overall health of the patient, severity and chronicity of health concerns. Once you begin treatment, your Doctor will be able to monitor how you respond and provide a better estimate of how many treatments may be required.

  • What are the side effects of Etiotherapy?

    Etiotherapy can bring unconscious stress responses into awareness. This can bring emotions to the surface, leading to emotional and/or physical shifts. Your Doctor will do a full review of potential side effects prior to your treatment.

  • Do I need to see a Naturopathic Doctor in order to receive Etiotherapy?

    Yes, currently only Dr Eric Posen, ND, provides Etiotherapy.

  • Is Etiotherapy covered by MSP or Extended Health Plans?

    Since Etiotherapy occurs during a visit with your Naturopathic Doctor, your visit will be billed as a Naturopathic visit. If you qualify for Premium Assistance through MSP, you may qualify for a small percentage of your visit cost to be covered by MSP. Most Extended Health plans do have coverage that can be applied to naturopathic visits; however, most plans have a limit to their coverage per year. We recommend contacting your insurance provider directly prior to your visit to determine your coverage.
