About Us

The National Institute for Integrative Healthcare (NIIH) is a leading-edge nonprofit dedicated to THERAPIES, to RESEARCH, and to EDUCATION in the fields of Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology.

Research has shown that emerging methods such as mindfulness, stress reduction, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), and the Relaxation Response are “evidence-based” practices for addressing both emotional trauma and physical symptoms. NIIH is dedicated to conducting empirical research in these methods, as well as expanding patient access by fostering their adoption in primary care settings.

Through its research projects and educational programs, NIIH investigates the epigenetic effects of intention, consciousness and energy in healing. Epigenetics is the branch of science describing influences that alter the expression of genes (epi=above; epigenetic=control of DNA from above or outside the gene).
​​​​​​​New research shows that consciousness (beliefs, emotions, optimism, altruism, visualization, prayer, energy, meditation) has epigenetic effects, affecting cellular processes at the most fundamental levels of molecular biology. NIIH is a leader in applying these methods for better health, happiness and longevity. NIIH also maintains a research bibliography of energy therapies, listing over 600 studies of these methods.

The National Institute for Integrative Healthcare has several activities: RESEARCH through the Foundation for Epigenetic Medicine, COUNSELING especially the Veterans Stress Project (now the Stress Solution), PUBLISHING, in association with Energy Psychology Press, the peer-reviewed journal Energy Psychology: Theory, Research, & Treatment, and EDUCATION through referrals to institutions offering training in the field. We also support relief and humanitarian projects. The epigenetic stress reduction methods promoted by NIIH have been featured in many media stories.

Tamey Greene
Director, US Veteran
Certified EFT Practitioner, MA, CPC

Serving my country in the US Navy was one of my favorite life experiences. As a way of staying connected to my fellow Veterans, I have been teaching upper-level Psychology courses, like Psychology of Combat, for APUS (AMU & APU) for 12 years. Volunteering with Stress Solution is my way of giving back to my sisters and brothers in arms by utilizing the tools and skills I have learned to help reduce (& even eliminate) the symptoms of (dis)stress & PTSD.

I am honored to be the Director of Veterans Stress Solution!
