Jungian Advanced Motor Processing© (JAMP©)
"The difference between the "natural" individuation process, which runs its course unconsciously, and the one that is consciously realized is tremendous. In the first case, consciousness nowhere intervenes; the end remains as dark as the beginning. In the second case, so much darkness comes to light that the personality is permeated with light and consciousness necessarily gains in scope and insight. The encounter between conscious and unconscious has to ensure that the light that shines in the darkness is not only comprehended by the darkness, but comprehends it."
- Carl Jung
What is JAMP©?
JAMP©️ treatment helps release and integrate splinter images of past conflicts from the complexes where they are stored after they have been dissociated by our natural defense mechanisms using advanced hypnotic techniques, which help release the image fragments that are held in the complexes.
Once these fragmented images are released, they are understood by the Psyche as a symbol and can be integrated. The process in which we interact and receive information with our environment is thus: it starts as a stimulus that elicits an emotion/reaction that is then transformed into a feeling that becomes a thought, then it is transformed into a symbol that is integrated into the psyche. Thus, trauma follows a path where an emotion, such as fear or rage, or a stimulus (for example, a sound or image that is caused by the traumatic event) is dissociated in the complexes, because the traumatic event is so chaotic and terrifying to our Psyche it must dissociate.
Jungian Advanced Motor Processing©️ helps reintegrate what was once raw, unintegrated, emotionally triggering and disturbing material brought on by the trauma. The integration process starts a deep change in the individual’s Psyche, a process of profound integration, what Jung would call “Individuation”. Thus, the person will be able to be in their bodies and not dissociated from their bodies. Through the ability to be in one’s own body and not dissociated, the person can finally experience inner harmony and begin to heal. Moving forward with their lives with a freedom that has not been experienced for a very long time.

What clients say about JAMP©
I have participated in weekly JAMP© sessions with Dr. Lahab Al-Samarrai for about five months and the results have been transformational and life changing. I have always been a sensitive person, one who took offense easily and was frequently triggered. Depending on the trigger my reaction ranged from a small zing to a rush of emotions that swept over me and left me paralyzed. The effects of these triggers could last for minutes or days or years, depending on the circumstances. I was in traditional therapy for about seven years and the severity of my symptoms decreased modestly. After JAMP© treatments I am very rarely triggered, and when I am the effect lasts a few seconds and then is completely gone. Situations come up almost daily that I know from a lifetime of past experiences would have triggered me before the treatments. As those moments pass with no reaction I now simply note the change. Before the JAMP© treatments I was very anxious. The severity would wax and wane, but the anxiety was never completely absent. My anxiety has dramatically decreased and I now have periods with none
at all. Working with Dr. Al-Samarrai I have uncovered feelings of which I was either unaware or did my best to suppress: specifically, rage, anger, guilt, and shame. Now these feelings are virtually non-existent.
I used to be very hard on myself and felt that, in many ways, I had to be perfect. I could accept mistakes in others but not in myself. Occasionally I would mentally go through my catalog of what I considered to be huge errors from my past so I could re-live the guilt and shame. Now when I think back on any of these past encounters I only feel compassion. In hindsight I can see that I was attached to my suffering. The JAMP© treatments have allowed me to release both the attachment to suffering and the suffering itself. I am calmer and more at peace than at any time in my life. The worrying, fretting and defensiveness that used to occupy my mind are almost completely gone, opening up vast space in my head. I can best describe my current baseline state as happy and serene with occasional mild anxiety. I very much look forward to future treatments and what they will reveal and unfold.
I have been engaged with Jungian Advanced Motor Processing, JAMP©, treatment for the past 4 ½ months, with weekly 90 minute sessions nearly every week during that time. Initially, I did not understand exactly what JAMP© was or how it worked. My partner began treatment about a month before I did, and after experiencing his results after 3-4 sessions, I was eager to try it out. JAMP© is a bit like Jungian analysis with eye-movement and bi-lateral stimulation thrown in. As a former mental health practitioner, I had a low opinion of EMDR, as it seemed to treat a single incident or trauma, and the effects were not lasting, usually with the client relapsing after about a year. JAMP© differs from conventional EMDR, to the best of my knowledge, by starting with the client, myself, free associating and talking about whatever is in the front of one's mind. Initially, for me, there was a huge off-loading of material that I had previously spent 15+ years in therapy trying to resolve.
Another piece of JAMP© is affirmations. After the initial part of a session, roughly 30 minutes, of me free associating, there is a period of affirmations, the therapist speaking the affirmation and myself repeating it. The sessions end with meditation while watching and listening to the bi-lateral stimulation and following the accompanying light bar. For myself, I began with what I perceived to be the most recent major trauma I had suffered, although it actually took me two or three sessions to identify the event as the trauma and realize what a huge impact it had had upon me. It had changed me significantly in many ways. After about four JAMP© sessions, I felt like my old self, but much better than my old self. I then began working on older material. We also worked on physical problems I had been having, most of which began after the most recent major traumatic event.
About 6-8 weeks into the treatment my analyst asked me to begin recording my dreams and sharing them with him, as material for our sessions. With his assistance, I can see clearly the progression of healing in my psyche from the content of my dreams. It is fascinating to me, from a clinical perspective, how JAMP© has created an accelerated healing process within myself, which is clearly reflected in my dreams. As I am feeling and functioning better and better, the JAMP© sessions are evolving, usually including some dream work as well as talking, affirmations, and meditation. I feel I have had better results with JAMP© in the past 18 weeks than I have in all the previous therapies in which I have engaged, including 15 years of psychotherapy.
I had always felt that something was "wrong" with me and that I was "damaged goods" unable to be anything other than what I already was. Later in life I even viewed myself as being "genetically damaged" and therefore unable to become corrected or whole.
I was quite skeptical of engaging in this treatment simply because nothing had ever worked previously in alleviating my own personal psychological and physical symptoms. I had previously engaged in dream interpretation, counseling, psycho-therapy, psychological treatment, psychiatric treatment, analysis, and even medication, and all to no avail. My major symptoms included racing thoughts, mental chaos at times, persistent multiple voices (not external voices, rather my own voice thinking about multiple things almost at the same time), uncontrolled feelings at times, hyper-vigilance, hyper-arousal, repetitive scenes in dreams, and obsessive dreams. Also, difficulty with being able to singularly focus on one thing at a time unless in a completely silent environment.
After six JAMP treatment sessions, I now am experiencing a singular voice in my head, racing thoughts are now under my own control, the feeling of mental chaos is 90% gone, a 90% improvement in inward emotional control, dreams that no longer contain repetitive and obsessive dream scenes as I dream in full stories now. I am able now to focus singularly on whatever I am thinking of and incredibly enough I am also able to integrate multiple themes of thought into a whole almost simultaneously. Even more remarkable to me at least, is that I am now able to what they use to say “stop and smell the roses” meaning that I am able to for example, sit on the patio and watch a thunderstorm for an hour simply enjoying everything that I am perceiving, and am even able to listen to music now for the first time and actually feel the emotions and meanings of music in my body instead of only being able to appreciate it from an intellectual or mental point of view i.e. I am experiencing Joy when I listen and experience it. It has been a positive and miraculously shocking set of experiences for me personally. I am greatly indebted to the IFC for providing this lifetime assistance and curative help!
