Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is an extensively researched and proven effective treatment for trauma. It focuses on the mind-body connection, using bilateral stimulation (rapid eye movements) to support and accelerate the brains natural ability to heal. The goal of EMDR is to weaken the intensity of emotionally charged or disturbing memories. Successful treatment often results in a decrease in symptoms, a decrease or elimination of distress from disturbing memories, and an increased sense of self.
EMDR therapy is frequently used in the treatment of:
- PTSD and other traumas
- Panic Attacks
- Eating Disorders
