What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an amazing new form of therapy that uses rapid eye movement to quickly heal many emotional problems that formerly took years with more traditional methods of psychotherapy. Up until a few years ago, certain conditions were very resistant to treatment and were considered to be lifetime disabilities. Thanks to EMDR, we now can offer hope to many who suffer from these conditions.
What kinds of problems is EMDR effective with?
EMDR is so new that we are still finding the limits of its effectiveness. Some of the areas it has been extremely successful with, so far, have been PTSD, trauma, childhood wounds, including abuse, irrational thoughts, fears, phobias, and panic anxiety. Currently, the use of EMDR with chronic pain, asthma, and even learning disabilities is being explored.
