What is EMDR?

Updated: May 29

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an extensively researched psychotherapy that helps people to heal from symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. 

EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories through alternating eye movements, sounds, or taps. When we experience a traumatic event, our brain stores it differently than a normal memory. EMDR is an evidence-based approach that is specifically targeted to help individuals heal from trauma or distressing life experiences that may be holding them back from living a fulfilled life.
