EMDR is a highly effective and short-term therapy to resolve trauma induced disorders such as PTSD. EMDR Therapy is based on the understanding that we process our daily experiences during REM sleep. Instead of processing traumatic experiences, a traumatized person has nightmares and wakes up leaving the experience unprocessed and unintegrated. EMDR Therapy uses bilateral stimulation, visual, auditory, or tactile to facilitate the processing of traumatic memories.
