What is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

EMDR is intended to alleviate human suffering and achieves profound treatment outcomes in the shortest period of time.

It is scientifically validated and is based on the theory that problems in people’s lives are often due to traumatic experiences or disturbing life events.

This treatment approach can result in the alleviation of presenting symptoms, reduction of distress from the memory, improved view of the self, relief from bodily disturbance, and the resolution of present and future anticipated triggers.
