What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.

EMDR is a form of therapy that helps people to heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness for trauma recovery. Experiencing trauma can block the brain's natural way of recovering from distressing events. EMDR therapy is designed to reactivate this natural healing process.
