Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is an evidence-based therapy that activates healing from traumatic events by changing the way memories are stored in the brain. The therapist guides the client to simultaneously focus on a memory while experiencing bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or tapping. This activates the brain in the location the memories are stored and accelerates the natural healing process. Along with trauma, EMDR has been proven to successfully treat anxiety, depression and grief.
