EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Re-Programming) is an effective and scientifically validated therapy, which aides the processing, transformation and healing of a wide range of unwanted emotional states including anxiety, depression, and emotions related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The method was discovered and developed in 1987 by Dr. Francine Shapiro. EMDR relates to the eye movements during REM sleep (Rapid Eye Movement). In the stages of REM sleep we are processing the experiences of the day. The brain processes them and stores them in its huge brain-data bank.
However, when we have some traumatic experience it seems that the brain fails to process the event, and the incident stays in our brain as a kind of “neurological knot.” Some of the nightmares are thought to be failed brain attempts to try to process traumatic memories.
This method can be used to effectively treat a wide variety of symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, fears, difficulty sleeping, addictions, among many others. Excellent results are also obtained to strengthening peak performance and improve our potential in work, sport, or social skills.
