What is EMDR Therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an advanced, non-invasive form of psychotherapy treatment that allows patients to access some of the body’s most powerful natural healing processes. Much like the body, the human mind can naturally heal itself. For the most part, the mind’s restorative process occurs during the sleep cycle—specifically during the REM stage of sleep. Initially developed in the 1980s, EMDR therapy has shown impressive results in treating many different issues. Along with other types of conditions, EMDR therapy can help alleviate:
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD);
- Emotional trauma;
- Depression; and
How Does EMDR Therapy Work?
At a core level, EMDR therapy affects the way that the brain processes information. In essence, the therapy allows for the release of emotional experiences that are ‘trapped’ within the nervous system. Typically, the EMDR process starts with a trained therapist working with a patient to recall a difficult feeling, thought, or memory. Using a technique called ‘bilateral stimulation’, EMDR therapy then facilities the reprocessing of the trauma. When successful, EMDR therapy allows painful, challenging feelings to transform into peaceful, resolved feelings. An emphasis is always put on patient comfort. EMDR works best when crafted to the individual patient’s needs.
