EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapy that helps people heal form emotional distress that can be caused by trauma. Imagine if your brain as a filing cabinet for memories. EMDR helps reorganize those memories, making them less overwhelming and easier to process. During a session, you will focus on a specific memory while your therapist utilizes bi lateral stimulation to activate both hemispheres' of your brain. This is usually done through eye-movements. This protocol helps your brain process the memory in a new way, reducing the emotional charge associated with it. . EMDR does not erase the memory, but it can help you see it from a different perspective, allowing you to move forward and feel less affected by the past. Just like physical therapy helps your body to recover from an injury, EMDR is like therapy for your brain, helping it heal from emotional wounds and promoting well-being.
