IEMT is a form of therapy that has had dramatic positive results for people with traumatic life experiences. If you have had a trauma in your past and feel you can not get over, or that it stops you from moving forward, IEMT could help. IEMT can be used content free - so you do not have to discuss what the trauma was if you feel you cannot talk about it (as long as you are aware of what the trauma was).

In the specific application of trauma recovery and post traumatic stress disorders experience readily shows that application of specific eye movement therapies is particularly effective with regards to intrusive imagery and "flashback" phenomena. Essentially, the method involves holding the problematic imagery in mind whilst the eyes are moved in different directions. The result of this is often that the imagery loses its emotional impact and becomes far less disturbing. The sometimes effective therapeutic model of EMDR is built on this principle.

Emotional imprinting occurs when a person lays down a new kinaesthetic response to an experience. This teaches the person how to feel about certain things. For example, how many of us when told by the boss that he'd "like a word" in his office immediately feel like a school child about to be told off. This is an emotional imprint in action.
