For those of you who are not familiar with EMDR I
would like to give a brief description of this amazing therapy
technique. EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
is a relatively new therapeutic technique. The method utilizes
rapid alternating eye movements similar to REM sleep. These eye
movements seem to enable the brain to process and store events.
Throughout our lives we have events happen that may be under tense
conditions, even simple activities which then become fixed into our
patterns of behavior. When we try to alter our thoughts and
behavior we find that we mostly just repeat our old patterns. EMDR
moves you to a new place in your mind and changes these patterns to give
you opportunities to do things with your life that you couldn't imagine
with your old pattern of thinking. This technique is efficient,
highly effective and incredibly calming.
