EMDR is an integrative therapy that helps people heal from traumatic experiences and other life-disturbing events. EMDR helps activate the brain's natural ability to heal and process information. Using dual attention stimulation, EMDR allows your brain and body to process the experience. EMDR therapy won't erase memories but will instead allow you to remember the experiences without all of the emotional distress.
A typical session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes. EMDR can provide rapid results; however, the type of problem, current life circumstances, and the amount of previous trauma will determine how many treatment sessions are necessary.
