    Exploring Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing in Trauma Therapy

    Trauma has a way of leaving its mark and impacting our lives in ways we never anticipated. If you’re on a journey of healing, you might have come across eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) as a therapeutic approach—but you may still be wondering how this could help alleviate the emotional impact that trauma can make. Let’s dive into how this innovative method is making waves in trauma therapy, and how you may benefit from this approach.

    What is EMDR?

    EMDR therapy isn’t like your typical therapy session. It’s a hands-on approach that helps you process and heal from distressing memories. Unlike traditional talk therapy, EMDR involves guided eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation that help the brain reprocess traumatic events more adaptively. In other words, EMDR is like a workout for your brain.

    During an EMDR session, your therapist will have you recall distressing memories while simultaneously engaging you in bilateral stimulation. This process helps your brain rewire its responses to those memories, making them less emotionally charged over time. In a way, it’s like pressing the reset button on your emotional reactions.
