Psoriasis is a non-contagious but chronic skin disease that does not usually affect the client’s wellbeing, but, due to the changes regarding the aspect of their skin, other members of society tend to avoid and sometimes marginalize a person that exhibits clear visual symptoms. This can cause the patient issues like anxiety, stress and depression. In this paper, we outline and detail a case study with the treatment of a patient diagnosed with psoriasis and the effects of the IEMT model treatment.
In addition, the IEMT primary concepts and techniques are described and further
references and training resources are provided.

Objectives: The current paper aims at providing evidence for the IEMT model, both as
possible and efficient, but also a non-intrusive, complementary method for treating patients
diagnosed with psoriasis skin eruption.

Methods: The Integral Eye Movement Therapy process was specifically designed by the
Association for IEMT Practitioners for their psoriasis research project.
Results: The client participating in this case study presented improvement after two weeks of
the single IEMT based treatment session and after three months the client’s psoriasis-induced
eruptions completely disappeared. Moreover, after two years and a half, his psoriasis-induced
eruptions also did not reappear.

Conclusions: Although further research is needed, following this case study, we can clearly
see the Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) model shows to be a promising approach in treating
stress-related psoriasis.
