What is IEMT Therapy?
IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy) is a type of therapy that is used to change thought patterns. This type of therapy uses questions and eye movement techniques to gain the required results. Studies show that moving your eyes in various patterns is connected to a part of your brain that stores your memories and emotions.
By utilising these specific eye movements it can lead to rapid release and relief from negative thought patterns. This type of therapy rapidly reduces unwanted feelings to help you combat certain problems such as anxiety or PTSD.
How Effective is IEMT Therapy?
The use of IEMT has proven to be extremely effective especially for people who suffer from mental illnesses such as depression. Some people prefer to do IEMT as opposed to taking pharmaceuticals because there are no side effects when doing this therapy.
Top 6 Benefits of IEMT Therapy
1. Identifying Learned Patterns
When you have negative thought patterns it’s associated with learnt behaviour from your past. For example, if you’re struggling with being overweight you may struggle to slim down because you always identify yourself as being too large.
People can also adopt a negative aspect about themselves that can prove to be problematic. You may identify yourself as always being unhappy and that you can’t change who you are. IEMT helps you identify why you’ve adopted these limiting beliefs about yourself.
2. You Don’t Have to Give a Full History Of Your Past
One of the benefits of IEMT therapy is that the therapist won’t ask you intrusive questions that need a direct answer such as asking you to describe the event of your trauma. You are only asked to rate your feelings on a scale of 1-10 based on the questions asked. You’re also asked to describe the location in your body that you feel these emotions.
Based on this information an IEMT therapist is able to give you the correct exercises to help relieve these feelings and provide you with the mental comfort you’re seeking.
This makes this sort of therapy ideal for people who are unable to describe how they’re feeling or are uncomfortable talking about past traumas.
3. Reduces PTSD or Anxiety Triggers
PTSD or anxiety is usually set off by a trigger that was learnt from something that may have happened in your past. If you struggle to trust a spouse it may be because previous partners didn’t treat you with respect. Or you may start to panic before an exam because you failed a test that was similar to it in the past.
IEMT helps reduce the intensity of these feelings and provides you with relief so you can manage your stress more effectively. You’re able to identify why you’re feeling the way you do which results in a calming effect.
4. Getting Rid of Your Fears and Phobias
What do you fear the most? Do you have strong phobias that lead to crippling fear? If you’re struggling with fear IEMT can help you relieve this panic in you. With a few sessions, you’ll be able to let go of that crippling fear especially ones that are triggered by phobias.
5. Helps You Build Up Your Confidence
IEMT isn’t simply for fear and anxiety. This type of therapy can also be used to build up your confidence by letting go of the negative thoughts you have about yourself. You’re able to start practicing self-love by letting go of those negative emotional imprints you’ve learnt over the years.
6. Reducing the Effects of Insomnia
Do you find your mind starts to think about past events when you’re lying in bed? The past can come back to haunt you when you don’t have anything to distract you. Thinking about the past can increase the effects of insomnia because your brain can’t rest.
With IEMT you can start to break free from your past so that you can get a better night’s rest. You may find that after a few sessions your sleep patterns will improve. As a result, you’ll feel more energetic and you’ll be able to manage your emotions and stress more effectively during the day.
Can Anyone Do IEMT Therapy?
IEMT therapy is suitable for children, teenagers and adults that suffer from the following:
- Low self-esteem
- Panic attacks
You can use IEMT to develop happy and confident children while they’re growing and learning about life. With teenagers and adults, IEMT can be used to deal with the past so they can have a happy present and future.
IEMT is the ideal therapy for children because it doesn’t use traumatic images to identify what the problem is. Instead, it uses kinaesthetic change by attending to imprints of emotion. So it’s a safe form of therapy that children can take part in.
When Should You Go For IEMT?
If you find that other types of councelling are not working for you then IEMT is the ideal alternative therapy to use. You should consider going for IEMT if you’re dealing with trauma, feelings of anger, self-doubt or stress.
Holding onto your past can stop you from enjoying your life in the present and it will have a negative impact on your future. If you deal with your past now, you’ll be able to live a life free from fear or bringing yourself down.
Consider going for IEMT if you feel like you’re stuck and can’t move forward or if you’re going through a divorce. You can use IEMT to help you deal with any current situation you’re dealing with so that it doesn’t have a negative imprint on your thoughts.
With IEMT sessions with a trained professional, you’re able to let go of all the bad memories you’ve been holding onto and start creating happy memories. If you’d like to start living a worry-free life or get rid of those trauma triggers you can book for your IEMT course with Jacquie Case.
