EMDR Treatment

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, EDMR for short, is a nontraditional and innovative type of psychotherapy. Clinicians and therapists now use this form of psychotherapy to treat patients with post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Over the past few years, EDMR has gained popularity in the field of mental wellness.

EMDR is unusual and unorthodox in its approach. The traditional way of treating mental disorders such as PTSD is a combination of medications and talk therapy. However, in EDMR, the treatment relies on the patient's own rapid and rhythmic eye movements. The treatment usually lasts up to 90 minutes per session. The therapist will ask you to follow his or her hand motions with your eyes while asking you to recall a disturbing and traumatic event in your past. Using hand gestures and your eye movements, the therapist will gradually shift your thoughts into pleasant and joyful ones. This will eventually allow the patient to disable traumatic thoughts and get back to living a normal life.
