Unified Field Therapy
Unified Field Therapy (UFT) has discovered that beyond the body, beyond energy, lies a matrix of consciousness that permeates every aspect of our world. This dynamic, ever-expansive matrix forms a single field from which all conscious life flows. This field is called the unified field.
All physical, mental, emotional, and energetic patterns known to our world originate from this single source. Present in our every experience, these patterns form the very fabric of our reality. The most subtle shift or change in these patterns can yield immense expansion in our consciousness and bring enormous transformation to one’s life. Utilizing this knowledge, UFT directly accesses the unified field to initiate shifts within a conscious system.
Clients remain fully clothed and are asked to lie face up on a massage table in a comfortable position with eyes closed and attention focused internally. The therapist then begins to evaluate, palpate, and integrate fields of consciousness surrounding and permeating the client. This can be done in a hands-on or hands-off application.
Sessions last approximately 40-60 minutes. Clients must define for themselves how their consciousness integrates and changes as a result of this work. For this reason, therapists are trained not to define or project their perceptions or expectations onto a client’s experience. Therapists often request that new clients follow up within 48-72 hours after the initial visit to discuss any additional shifts that may have occurred in the interim.

UNTIE was developed in the United States in the early 1980s as an alternative to exerting force into soft tissues that may already be painful to the touch. It is basic to UNTIE that soft-tissue dysfunction, no matter how deep within the body, can be felt in the skin, and these patterns of dysfunction are palpable once the proper awareness and sensitivity have been developed.
Changes in the patterns of dysfunction are stimulated by the presence of the practitioner’s fingers and determined by the body’s natural desire to reach homeostasis. The hands move gently in concert with the changes, and the fingers respond to the changes without any application of force, will, or preconceived routine.
Once the patterns release, the soft tissues are reevaluated to confirm they have normalized and musculoskeletal integrity has improved. Although other approaches may not specifically address soft-tissue patterns, the patterns are affected, since there is contact with the skin as soft tissues are manipulated. The more thorough the method used, the more likely it is that the patterns will be released, allowing for more complete, long-term change.
Because the foundation of UNTIE is sensitivity, it readily deals with the unique patterns of the individual. It is a procedure for working with the body, not on the body.
