Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful psychotherapy approach that has helped over an estimated two million people relieve many types of psychological distress. EMDR therapy seems to have a direct effect on the way the brain processes information. Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post-traumatic stress. Over 20 controlled studies have found consistently that EMDR therapy effectively decreases or eliminates the symptoms of post-traumatic stress for a majority of clients. However, clinicians have also reported success using EMDR therapy in the treatment of panic attacks, complicated grief, phobias, addictions, sexual and physical abuse, stress reduction and more.
