EMDR is a blend of psychotherapy and bilateral brain stimulation that is highly successful in treating stress, anxiety and trauma.

During this procedure, patients tend to “process” the memory in a way that leads to a peaceful resolution.

This often results in increased insight regarding both previously disturbing events and long held negative thoughts about the self.

EMDR can be used to lower stress levels for people with:

  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • SPD
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Mood disorders
