What Is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EDMR, is a form of psychotherapy that helps people heal from PTSD and other trauma-related disorders. EDMR is an eight-phase treatment that utilizes the power of rapid eye movement to significantly accelerate patients’ intellectual and emotional processing of past trauma.

EMDR has proven to be remarkably successful in clinical testing, with previous studies finding that roughly 77% of patients were free of PTSD in as little as three sessions. It’s recognized as an effective form of therapy by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization and the U.S. Department of Defense.
