What is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR Therapy for PTSD, etc…
PTSD/Trauma can come from abuse, war, divorce, etc…
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is psychotherapy helping people heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of challenging and traumatic life experiences.
It’s an assumption that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. Using EMDR therapy, the mind can, in fact, recover from psychological trauma.
Physical vs. Mental Healing
When you cut your hand, millions of cells rush to the cut to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Healing resumes when the block is removed.
Using EMDR therapy there is similar healing that occurs in the mental process; removing the foreign object, the irritating memory, the brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.

EMDR is an approved therapy by the government for treating PTSD and is used by the VA (Veteran’s Association)
