EMDR is a trauma-focused therapy model seen in use both nationally and internationally (EMDRIA).* It claims that most of our emotional and physical complaints stem from negative memories that we have not yet correctly processed into our long-term memory. At night, our eyes quickly move back and forth during a REM cycle as we process our memories. EMDR strategically mirrors this eye movement to help individuals reprocess past events that currently affect their way of life. EMDR is effective for many different issues such as abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, social anxiety, pain management, domestic violence, weight loss, and more.
