Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
For kids/teens we call it:
Eyes Moving to Digest and Recover
If you have suffered for years from anxiety or distressing memories, nightmares, insomnia, abuse or other traumatic events, you can now gain relief from a revolutionary new therapy called EMDR. Research shows that EMDR is rapid, safe and effective. EMDR does not involve the use of drugs or hypnosis. It is a simple, non-invasive patient-therapist collaboration in which healing can happen effectively. This powerful technique is highly effective for a wide range of disorders including chronic pain, phobias, depression, panic attacks, eating disorders and poor self-image, stress, worry, stage fright, performance anxiety, recovery from sexual abuse and traumatic incidents. Many patients who have made slow progress in the past, or who have not benefited from more traditional therapies say that with EMDR they have finally found something that works for them.
