Eye Movement

Desensitization and Reprocessing

(EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that result from disturbing life experiences. It is one of the most widely researched and validated methods used today in the treatment of trauma. EMDR is based on the premise that a disturbing experience becomes locked in the brain and stored with the same perceptions that existed at the time of the event. Its greatest strength lies in its ability to access a natural physiological process so that the individual can tap into his or her own inherent healing ability. As humans, we are all hardwired to heal. Resolution occurs when we are able to access the disturbing experience via bilateral stimulation. EMDR is also effective in treating anxiety, addictions, stress, depression, and more.
