Heal The Past So You Can Live Your Life Now
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment approach that facilities the processing of past traumatic events that impact us in our current lives. Research has shown it to be rapid, effective and applicable to a variety of issues. It has proven successful in the treatment of:
- Anxiety, Stress & Panic
- Relationship Issues
- Chronic Pain
- Sexual & Physical Abuse
- Sleep Problems
- Performance Anxiety
- Grief & Loss
- Disturbing memories or experiences from earlier in our lives
With the use of bi-lateral stimulation (eye movements, hand-tapping, knee-taping, etc.), EMDR appears to unlock the nervous system and allow the brain to reprocess disturbing memories. The dual focus – being in the present moment while calling up the disturbing memory – facilitates the brain in moving the disturbance from emotion intense areas of the brain to cognitive areas where it can be recalled with a much decreased level of disturbance.
