Introducing The Integral Eye Movement Therapy Video Series

If you have an interest in different types of therapy, you may be familiar with eye movement therapies. Personally, I'm not a therapist, but I do follow trends in therapy and have been aware of EMDR for quite some time. But I hadn't heard about Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) before Andrew T. Austin sent me the information about his Integral Eye Movement Therapy video series.

These videos were designed with clinicians/therapists in mind, but the information in the videos is of interest to many laypeople as well, and in fact, about half of the sales of the videos so far have been to people who want to apply the techniques for their personal development.

The series contains four parts and goes into depth regarding the structure of the treatment, how the exercises work, and issues related to PTSD, anxiety, identity reimprinting, and more. I have heard a lot about eye movement therapies helping with anxiety and traumatic stress, so I was particularly interested that one of the four parts is devoted entirely to covering the use of IEMT for long-term anxiety.

Today we so often think of pharmaceuticals as a first-line for mental health, but isn't it refreshing that practitioners like Andrew Austin are devoting their time and efforts to non-drug interventions that can help people reduce their pain and suffering? The techniques in the videos have a broader application, too, and can help people identify and work with emotional patterns and other aspects of the self.
