EMDR stands for Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing. What is it? It takes what your mind naturally does in the thinking process and hones in on it in a fine tuned way to give you the healing you desire. Specific events are processed through a back and forth motion as you maintain dual awareness of the hurtful experiences while at the same time noticing what is happening in your body. Trauma therapy is not about reliving the experience but about finding closure from the past. EMDR is an evidence based therapy that helps one find the closure that has been sought after for so long.
