What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful psychotherapy technique that is very successful in helping people suffering from sexual problems, anxiety, panic, trauma, and many other emotional problems.  EMDR is a breakthrough therapy for its simplicity, short duration and the lasting relief it provides for most types of anxiety and emotional distress.

EMDR therapy uses tactile stimulation and bilateral, right/left eye movements, which repeatedly activate the opposite sides of the brain.  This stimulation releases negative emotions that have gotten “trapped” in the nervous system.  The result is that the neurophysiological system, the mind/body connection, is able to free itself of the emotional blockage and reconnect itself.

Extensive scientific studies have shown that EMDR  is a highly effective, short-term method of healing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), emotional difficulties, and a range of sexual issues, like:  sexual abuse, sexual trauma, sexual performance anxiety, and other disorders.

As disturbing images and feelings are “processed” by EMDR’s eye-movement patterns, the issues can be resolved and a more peaceful state achieved.
