What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR is a type of therapy that allows people to heal from disturbing life experiences, whether it’s a car accident, loss of a loved one, or various forms of trauma and abuse.

EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. EMDR utilizes the natural healing ability of your body. It is an eight-phase treatment method. After a thorough assessment and client preparation, you will be asked specific questions about a disturbing memory. We then incorporate bilateral stimulation, such as tapping, pulsators, headphones, or a lightbar.

Bilateral stimulation is the alternating right and left stimulation of the brain which activates and integrates information from the brain’s two hemispheres.

During reprocessing sessions there is often changes in thoughts, images and feelings. With repeated sets of bilateral stimulation, the memory tends to change so that it loses its painful intensity and becomes more of a neutral memory.

Other associated memories may also heal at the same time. This linking of related memories can lead to a dramatic and rapid improvement in many aspects of your life.
