WHAT IS EMDR?

EMDR is neat! Many people overcome "stuck areas" of their life through the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR helps people resolve physical, mental and emotional limitations which allows them more FREEDOM! There are a lot of pages on the internet that give information about EMDR.  

In a nutshell, when something disturbing happens it gets stored in the brain in a way that feels like that event is either going to happen again or is still happening now.  When something happens that is similar or reminds your brain of that disturbing event, the brain reacts as if the original disturbing event is happening again.

EMDR helps  by reorganizing the storage of memories in your brain. This allows the past to stay in the past! This, in turn allows you to be able to live more fully in the present.
