EMDR is an acronym for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is an innovative therapy treatment which has successfully helped over a million survivors of trauma, including sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, combat, crime and other problems. This method of psychotherapy integrates many elements of sound therapeutic approaches in combination with eye movements (or other forms of rhythmical stimulation) in ways that stimulate the brain's information processing system. Through this method people achieve their goals at a faster rate than traditional therapy with recognizable changes that don't disappear over time.

Reprocessing earlier experiences with EMDR allows the person to gain insight, shift cognitive assessment, incorporate ecological emotions and body reactions, as well as adopt more adaptive behaviors. EMDR allows the brain to heal its psychological problems at the same rate as the rest of the body is healing its physical ailments. Although some people progress at twice the rate as traditional therapy all progress at the rate appropriate to the individual and the situation being resolved.
