Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy that was developed in the late 1980’s. It started with eye movement but later expanded to include other forms of “bilateral stimulation”–moving from one side of the brain/body to the other.
It has been highly researched and it works for so many things. It is known for trauma, but trauma is how our bodies respond to events and information is stored in our nervous system. I discussed that some here. EMDR is worth trying for so many mental health symptoms. I was trained in 2016 and have been a certified EMDR therapist since 2018.
