What is EMDR therapy and how does it work?


Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence based effective therapy that help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences. EMDR Therapy focuses on desensitizing emotions, thoughts, or behaviors of the distressed event, allowing the brain to resume its natural healing process.


Our brain naturally process our daily experiences, in an adaptive manner. However when our mind become overly simulated our experience can overwhelm that brain's natural healing process. Our mind, much like our body has has the capacity to heal. However, when a person experiences a traumatic event, it can sometimes become too much for the brain to process in a natural healthy manner.


The trauma memories of the experience can become ineffectually processed which can cause debilitating symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares and panic attacks. EMDR Therapy can helps the brain reprocess past traumas by desensitizing the emotional charge of the memory, and reprocesses how the brain restores it in the mind and body.
