Life experiences can sometimes leave you feeling trapped and hopeless. Whether it's a traumatic, painful, or otherwise upsetting event, the emotional and physical toll can linger for a long time.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) follows an eight-step process to help people recover from emotional and physical symptoms related to traumatic or stressful events. Sometimes traumatic memories can make you feel stuck in a loop of distress and pain. Using EMDR, the mind can begin to repair itself from psychological trauma in a manner similar to how the body heals physical wounds. When you get a cut, your body naturally works to heal it, but if there's debris in the wound, healing is delayed and the injury may become infected. Removing the blockage allows the body to heal properly. EMDR functions in a similar way by targeting memories and beliefs that block your mental recovery, allowing for healing and personal growth. Studies have shown that EMDR can deliver therapeutic outcomes that used to take years to achieve.
