“ The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed. ”
~ Carl Jung ~
- E.M.I. is a neurotherapy – not a psychotherapy. It is working with the senses – primarily with vision (the eyes).
- Trauma experienced through all five senses. During the trauma we see, hear, feel, things happening, and maybe even taste and smell some of it.
- The majority is trauma (60%) is experienced through the eyes – things that you saw during trauma. The rest of the trauma is (to a greater or lesser extent) experienced by the other four senses (hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting).
- Trauma can be compared by a glass with bleach (e.g. “Jig”) in it. Therapy is like gradually adding some more and more water to the bleach, thereby diluting the bleach progressively. That is: having the original intensity of trauma gradually and significantly decreased or even disappeared.
- M.I. helps you to work through trauma using your eyes, and following 22 movements of the therapist’s fingers with your eyes.
- The therapist guides you – in no way are you controlled or manipulated.
