What is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy empowers the individual to tap into the body’s natural healing processes in order to integrate and move beyond traumas and disturbing life experiences. Events that are not integrated become unprocessed memory and get stored in the brain creating uncomfortable symptoms. These unprocessed and upsetting memories get stuck in our short term memory and EMDR therapy helps to move those memories on to long term memory where they belong. This facilitates the process of the past staying in the past rather than getting triggered in the present.
