WHAT IS EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing
Why we all need an additional type of therapy, along with talk therapy, to truly resolve trauma at the deepest level:
Talk therapy does not, technically, address the part of the brain where the trauma is stored in a “frozen”…. like it happened yesterday….state. A vehicle is needed like EMDR which is a mind/body trauma treatment that reloads the trauma in the executive function part of the forebrain where active desensitization and reprocessing of the trauma happens. Bilateral Brain Stimulation or rem-like connection between the left & right hemispheres of the brain provide focus on both the cellular level of the body and the mind’s most creative abilities to unpack and reassemble in a more functional way….what happened to you….that paralyzes some of your ability to show up, be present and care.
