Local psychologist administers simple stress-reducing technqiue
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, referred to as EMDR for shorthand, is based on what Greenberg called "bilateral stimulation." In EMDR, this stimulation is not limited to the eyes but can also include softly tapping the left and right knees or the backs of the hands. Greenberg said that some counselors also use small "pulsers," which vibrate when held in the hands. Some therapists also use audio input, where a patient wears headphones that give alternating right and left beeps or slowly pan music from side to side.
