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.

The Four Archetypes: JAMP & The Resolution of The Glitch (Part 1)

What clients say about JAMP

JAMP has truly changed and shaped my life ever since I encountered it in, what I truly believe was, divine timing. Through JAMP, I was able to uncover the root of where many of my core beliefs about myself originated from. After just a few sessions, I started dreaming again after having been cutoff from this part of my unconscious for many years. This treatment has helped me tap back into the power and gifts I knew I possessed as a child yet became disconnected from through years of feeling both “not enough” and “too much.”

Through JAMP I have come to recognize not only the patterns that were keeping me stuck, but why I was repeating them. Even though I had been in traditional therapy since a young age, I was not able to make these connections nor truly connect with myself. JAMP has allowed me to find my way back to myself, love myself, and have the courage and strength to do things I never thought possible of myself.

JAMP and Dr Lahab have changed my life. I was suffering from a lot of anxiety and depression. I was a walking zombie, I felt dead, and I wanted to die. All I did was cry and self harm, I hated myself, I hated the world, I hated everything and everyone. I couldn’t even step foot outside of the house because of my anxiety. I locked myself in my room, didn’t speak to anybody, slept all day, I had constant emotional outbursts, panic attacks, and was absolutely terrified to leave the house.

Dr Lahab helped me realize why all of this was happening, I was traumatized, and everything that was happening to me was because of what I went through. He helped me find ways to cope and to heal. I slowly began getting better, I began leaving the house, for little walks, I began going to school again, making friends, and every month I got better and better. The therapy helped me calm down, I did the meditation whenever I was anxious or really sad, even though sometimes I didn’t want to do it Dr Lahab always encouraged me too and I’d give in, then I’d feel calmer and more capable of thinking properly.

I could never control my emotions even before the depressive wave I went through. I learned so much, I can now control my emotions, think clearly I’m tough situation and most of all I found my confidence again. I hated myself before, and now there’s nothing I love more in this world then me. Dr Lahab stayed by my side the entire time, even through the irrational decisions I was making, he’d never tell me what to do. I used to feel so alone, until I met Dr Lahab, I owe him my life. It’s about a year later since I started JAMP therapy and my life has been great, I’m finally genuinely happy, I’m thinking about new paths I want to take for my career. I rarely have panic attacks or anxiety attacks, my self confidence has sky rocketed and I’m just over all a better human being.

I can’t thank Dr Lahab enough for everything he’s done as well as putting up with my emotional 18 year old teenager self. I wasn’t an easy patient. But he was always kind, patient, and most of all helpful. I still use the meditation till this day. And whenever someone around me is feeling stressed or anxious I show it to them and they feel better. JAMP was my cure, and I hope it’s yours too.

A friend referred me to Dr Lahab Al Samarrai after facing a number of challenges including losing my job and having serious family problems. My thoughts were, it’s a stage and will pass, as any other trauma that I didn’t know existed in my life. At the start I was skeptical to try therapy because in our culture it’s frowned upon and there is a stigma surrounding mental illness. I thought I had a normal life, raised a family, and a successful career for the last 30 years. Turns out, it was from that.

After starting the JAMP treatment, I started realizing how I was bottling things up and how this affected my life since my early childhood. After my third JAMP treatment, I started understanding myself better, felt more alive, began freeing myself from all the negative thoughts, and felt more authentic. I started recognizing all the fear, anger, and anxiety that affected my life all along.

It freed my spirit!!!

I’m more accepting to my own self, I can control the negative feelings I had before. I’m emotionally more aware. Thank you Dr Lahab Al Samarrai for helping me realize my trauma which has changed my life and added so much positivity to my everyday. Thank you!

I feel happier and more integrated in myself. Six JAMP sessions with Virginia Alcalde removed obsessive recall of old traumatic memories and helped identify behaviors deeply rooted in coping skills from my formative years. I have tools now to modify my behavior with skills more appropriate to my life today. That includes near cessation of binge eating and obsessing about food. What a relief! My journey continues and I am grateful Gigi is there walking with me.

I have long been an advocate of the synergistic relationship between the mind and the body. During my career as a massage therapist, I had the opportunity to see the mental effects of regular bodywork on my long term clients. It is extremely helpful in relieving depression, anxiety and a number of other mental health challenges, but takes a very long time.

With JAMP, I see the results of mental relief much quicker. A year ago I had some JAMP sessions because I was overwhelmed with resentment over having to struggle so much with my weight. After some JAMP sessions I felt a dissipation of that resentment and an increase in my ability to stay with a food and exercise plan. I went on to lose 25 pounds. It is still off.

A few weeks ago I was struggling with a number of situations where I felt betrayed by someone. In a matter of months I had ended several acquaintanceships that could move to friendship but something happened where I felt betrayed by that person. Noting this pattern plus the feeling of frustration in several aspects of my life, I decided it was time for JAMP again.

It took only a few sessions and it made a huge difference in my life. The trauma that was the source of those feelings was my early mothering years. AS the weeks since the session have passed, I am still recognizing times where I feel significantly less burdened. My mind is not preoccupied or distracted and I can focus on what is in front of me and get the task finished. It is like I let go of a huge burden.

Since the last set of JAMP sessions I have noticed a change in how I brush my teeth. This may seem silly, but to me it shows significant healing. I have always had an extremely sensitive gag reflex. The recommendation of brushing one’s teeth for three minutes was completely lost on me. It was a good day when I could brush longer than thirty seconds. I can now brush for three minutes without a gag reflex. This tells me that some traumatic events involving mouth violation when I was a child have been resolved.

JAMP has the power to heal both the body and the mind. The technology involved generates a healing that talking cannot do. I highly recommend this work.

I am a skeptic, but this treatment is the stuff of miracles.

Dr. Lahab’s JAMP has helped me get back to enjoying a hobby that previously caused me pain.

A few years ago I crashed my motorcycle and injured my knee. After it healed, I bought another motorcycle and kept riding as I did before. The only difference is that there was untreated trauma surrounding the event of the crash, and left unaddressed, it started to materialize in a throbbing pain in my right knee.

This pain would ONLY occur on my motorcycle after riding for an hour or so. I never experienced this pain while walking, running, hiking, lifting weights, etc. I decided to give JAMP a try with Lahab.

Last week I had a chance to get out on the motorcycle again and rode about 150 miles (took almost 3 hours). I did not experience any pain in my knee on this ride.

If you have something holding you back that you can’t explain, physical pain or otherwise, you need to try this. Do yourself a favor and free yourself from the manifestations of trauma in the body and mind.

We suffered a big trauma me and my family from losing a family member 15 years ago and never talked about it, that was our coping mechanism.

It was hard for me to express my feelings in-front of my mom and grandmother, I always acted strong or so I thought but deep inside I was not. That incident effected every aspect of my life.

I started therapy sessions with Dr. Lahab it was hard for me to remember all the details of the incident but with JAMP therapy listening to the heartbeat and the blue light among many other techniques, I am so much better now, and I feel that I have healed in that journey and to finally let go and open about all these emotions that was eating me from the inside all these years.

After a few months of treatment I feel like I’m a new person, more aware of a lot of things. I understand myself more and know how to control my fears I’m really lucky to know Dr. Lahab he is the reason what I feel today.

Really there are not enough words to express how much I Am thankful.

After sustaining an injury that resulted in a partial knee replacement at the age of 27, I was left with constant knee pain, lingering atrophy, and imbalances in my legs and hips that made routine tasks like using a staircase nearly impossible. For over 2 years I had tried everything from extensive physical therapy and personal training to prescription painkillers and joint supplements. After exhausting all known recovery options, to no avail, I was willing to try anything. That is when I found Dr. Lahab.

After learning about JAMP I decided to give it a try in hopes that it would help me recover from my lingering knee pain; what I received was so much more. After just one JAMP session my knee pain was completely gone. I went from not being able to air squat without excruciating hip and knee pain, to back squatting over 400lbs completely pain free. While JAMP helped me recover from my knee pain, it also helped me reach a level of peace and self-awareness that I had never experienced before. In the 5 sessions that I have taken so far, JAMP has helped me heal from traumas of my past that I did not even realize had such a profound impact on my life today. Through JAMP I have developed the ability to relax, decompress, and acknowledge my ability to choose how I respond and react to the things I cannot control. This treatment has redefined self-awareness for me, allowing me to know, accept, and appreciate myself. Creating a level of internal peace that I believe we can all benefit from. I cannot recommend JAMP enough to not just those struggling with known trauma, but anyone experiencing any difficultly or hardship in life. I can confidently say that Dr. Lahab and JAMP have changed my life in ways that I could have never imagined. And for that, I am eternally grateful.

Dr. Lahab Al-Samarrai was recommended to me by my veteran brother. I was reluctant to start, I didn’t think that my life was ever truly bad enough to need trauma therapy. However, by 27 I had been diagnosed with severe depression, anxiety, panic attacks which I was told were the cause of my nonepileptic seizures, PTSD, consistent hand tremors and on two controlled medications. My last physician appointment ended with a diagnosis of potential adult autism.

After spending thousands in medical bills and years of failed medications and doctor visits, I lost hope of ever healing.

After the first session of JAMP with Dr. Lahab Al-Samarrai I instantly felt the most foreign and first uncomfortable feeling, it was calmness. The calmness I never knew existed. The session released myself from the shackles of my own mind. Clearing my instilled consuming fear of abandonment, homelessness, rape, and abusive ex boyfriends which drove my subconscious thought process.

I now feel free. These sessions have given me not just my life, but a future as well. I feel closer to my authentic self than I ever thought possible. I feel genuine hope. I have not only a will to live but a desire to succeed and create a future. JAMP helped me discover myself. My health conditions depleted after the first session. I am no longer bound by fears of the past which drove my every decision making as well as my physical and neurological health.

My trauma was not just my own, it was generational. These sessions have allowed me to find my inner strength, my inner voice, and my inner self – with no pressure of anxiety, fear, guilt, shame, or sadness to weigh my mind, body, and soul down. Upon completing my 7th session, my mind set has completely shifted. The depression, anxiety, and guilt no longer plague my life. Through his sessions I have conquered generational trauma that I now no longer fright of passing down to my own children.

My 16 year old daughter was referred to Dr. Lahab for his JAMP therapy for sexual assault trauma. It happened 8 months ago, by someone she trusted and loved. It caused severe depression and anxiety, panic attacks, nightmares, isolation, etc. She had 3 sessions of JAMP in 8 days. I saw a difference in her after the first session, like a little confidence beginning to come back into her eyes. But after the 3rd session, it was like my daughter was back to who she was before the trauma happened.

She was not closed off in her room on her phone. She was playing outside and laughing, running around with her siblings. Her color and light were back! Literally- the day after. It has been 8 weeks since her sessions. I can’t believe how our lives have changed. It is nothing short of a miracle. She has confidence, gotten a job she loves, gotten out of a relationship that wasn’t uplifting, sleeping great, off all meds, talks about hope in her future. Even talking about the trauma, the heaviness and fear are gone. Even for me, as her mother. It has shifted both of us.

There continues to be circles coming together in her healing and growing process. She has more confidence and strength than I have ever seen. I am so thankful for this miracle therapy and for Dr Lahab. It was an answer to many prayers.

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!

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 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.

MDG

I’ve been quite impressed by my experiences with JAMP as both a patient and a practitioner. I first experienced JAMP as a patient. After my first session, I felt I had awoken from a long dream and began to question many long-held assumptions and negative beliefs about myself and my life. After several sessions, I found myself feeling lighter and more alive, and I was able to have several difficult but necessary conversations that would not have felt approachable otherwise.

As a practitioner, I’ve seen a single JAMP session slice through multiple complex layers of trauma that have severely impacted a person for years. One of the most remarkable aspects of JAMP is that the demeanor of patients often noticeably changes in a positive way after just one session – patients are often more open and relaxed and calm. The speed and the efficiency with which JAMP has allowed patients to process emotions and trauma is impressive and unlike any other process or tool I’ve used.
