How is EMDR Different?
Our brain has the wonderful and amazing ability to heal itself. EMDR therapy works together with our brain’s natural ability to do just this.
Through brief sets of eye movements, taps or auditory tones, the part of the brain that processes information is able to make connections to help heal emotional disturbance stored in the nervous system.
It is similar to the same processes that happen during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep.
