Académie Impact



Trainer: Danie Beaulieu, Ph.D.

EMI level 1 presents the basic EMI protocol to enable the therapist to start using EMI with most clients. It covers the origin, what to do before EMI (evaluation, explanation of the technique to the clients, frequency of the sessions, etc), how to perform the eye movements, what to do during and between each movement, how to close a session, how to identify where to start for a second session and how to know the treatment is completed.

Great news: our access code for this training is now  valid during 6 consecutive months, so you can review your training to self-correct yourself once you start practicing!
