During EMDR therapy, specific memories are accessed and combined with eye movements (bilateral stimulation) and guided instruction to help reprocess the negative event. This reprocessing helps flush out the mental injury from that memory. As a result, you will still recall the event but it will not hold the same psychological and physiological charge. Remembering the event will be more manageable.
EMDR Therapy has a unique ability to create new, more positive neural pathways, leaving the effects of negative memories of the past behind you.
Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy, people can experience positive results that once took years to establish.
