Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing

Description

What is EMDR? EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful and relatively new form of psychotherapy which has been very successful in helping people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress, and many other emotional challenges. The EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation (eye movement, tactile stimulation, or acoustic stimulation) which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing emotional experiences that are Atrapped@ in the nervous system. This assists the neuro‑physiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself.
