ENERGY THERAPIES INSTITUTE is devoted to providing PRACTITIONER TRAINING in the energy-based therapeutic methods listed in the menu at the left. With an INTERNATIONAL outlook and a Philosophy of Compassion, the Institute is the initiative of PROGRAMME DIRECTOR, Dr Ranna-Lesley Lachlan (PhD, BCPP, RPP, RPE), an Australian-American who is a USA Board Certified Polarity Practitioner and Registered Polarity Therapy Educator. Energy Therapies Institute currently focuses on training alternative health therapists and practitioners in Australia and the USA.


  • Your Programme Director is an experienced educator who has taught in the vocational, university, college, and private sectors in the USA, Asia, and Australia, including as pedagogical manager overseeing a faculty of 23 teachers and over 400 - 600 trainees.

  • You will be exposed to an international perspective: Originating from Australia and based jointly in the USA and Australia, the Programme Director has also lived and studied in India, Japan, Thailand and other parts of South East Asia.

  • You will experience a real world approach to Energy Therapy training as a result of practice-based knowledge and experience.

  • You will experience a caring yet integrated, systematic and thoughtful approach to Energy Therapy education that also incorporates scholarly principles of learning.

  • You will be provided clear, simple information about the origins of the particular therapy you are studying. Regarding Polarity Therapy, the Programme Director has spent considerable time at the institute in India where Dr Stone spent much of his later life.

  • You will be offered a wide range of electives.

  • Your training will be taught or supervised by a doctoral qualified educator who is capable of supervising training at a professional and post-graduate level.

  • You will be respected by a strong code of ethics regarding trainees, including their ownership of their own intellectual property.

  • Your programme director is an educator with experience dealing with professional associations - and is a former Board member of the American Polarity Therapy Association.

  • You will be treated like a serious adult, a professional-in-training, someone with prior life and career experience who has chosen to enhance your life through acquiring Polarity Therapy knowledge. This is a very different approach from being treated like a "student".
