EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) was discovered in 1987 by Dr. Francine Shapiro. EMDR is a remarkable treatment method used to process and resolve traumatic events and other unresolved issues. EMDR uses bilateral Stimulation either left/right eye movement, sound or tactile stimulation, which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain. This helps the Neuro-Physiological System, the basis of the mind body connection to free itself of blockages. EMDR was given the highest level of recommendation in the treatment of trauma by the American Psychiatric Association (2004). The current treatment guidelines of the American Psychiatric Association and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies designate EMDR as an effective treatment for post traumatic stress.
