EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful therapy used for a wide range of emotional disturbances from trauma and overwhelming life experiences. EMDR integrates successful elements of various therapeutic approaches and it seems to accelerate the healing process that could take years with other forms of Psychotherapy. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from trauma similar to how the body recovers from physical injury.
With a physical wound, your body works to heal. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health and if the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR uses detailed protocols and procedures that allow Therapists to help clients activate their natural healing processes.
