EMDR TRAUMA THERAPY
Studies have found EMDR therapy to be successful at treating PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trauma therapy is a structured form of therapy that allows people to heal from the distress caused by traumatic experiences.
Unlike traditional talk therapy, EMDR uses eye movements, which are believed to to be connected with the biological mechanisms involved in Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. These movements allow people to become desensitized to the memory and begin to process the disturbing feelings they have associated with the traumatic event.
