EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is a psychotherapy treatment originally designed to alleviate stress associated with traumatic memories but is now used to treat a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, substance abuse and eating disorders. EMDR therapy appears to enable people to heal from symptoms because of its direct effect on the way the brain processes information. Following a successful EMDR session with a therapist, a person no longer relives the feelings, images and sounds when the event comes to mind. You can still remember what happened, but it has less power and is less disturbing.
