EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables
people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life
experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
During EMDR therapy sessions, you visualize traumatic or triggering experiences in brief doses while the therapist directs your eye movements.
Though EMDR is best known for helping people who are dealing with severe traumatic
memories and those who have PTSD , this therapy is also successful to treat:
♦ panic attacks
♦ eating disorders
