How EMDR works

How does it work

The mind can often heal itself naturally in the same way as the body does. Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Most of the time, your body routinely manages new information and experiences without you being aware of it during the REM phase of sleep. However, when something out of the ordinary occurs and you are traumatized by an overwhelming (e.g. a car accident) or by being repeatedly subjected to distress, your natural coping mechanism can become overloaded. This overloading can result in disturbing experiences remaining frozen in your brain or being unprocessed.

Such unprocessed memories and feelings are stored in the limbic system of your brain in a “raw” and emotional form, rather than in a verbal “story” mode. This limbic system maintains traumatic memories in an isolated memory network that is associated with emotions and physical sensations, which are disconnected from the brain’s cortex where we use language to store memories. The limbic system’s traumatic memories can be continually triggered when you experience events similar to the difficult experiences you have been through.

Often the memory itself is long forgotten, but the painful feelings such as anxiety, panic, anger or despair are continually triggered in the present. Your ability to live in the present and learn from new experiences can therefore become inhibited.

Dr. Francine Shapiro discovered Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) in 1987, utilizing this natural process in order to successfully treat Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). EMDR emulates REM sleep targeting a specific traumatic event, stimulating the same neural mechanisms and helping to create the connections between your brain’s memory networks, enabling your brain to process the traumatic memory in a very natural way. With repeated sets of left-right eye movements, the memory tends to change in such a way that it loses its painful intensity and simply becomes a neutral memory of an event in the past. Other associated memories may also heal at the same time. This linking of related memories can lead to a dramatic and rapid improvement in many aspects of your life.

Advantages of EMDR

Advantages of EMDR

The reasons behind EMDR success are the high efficacy rate of the therapy. Patients start feeling improvements much faster than with other therapies.

Moreover, instead of using drugs, EMDR mobilizes the body’s internal and natural coping mechanism therefore being a 100% natural process.

Traditional therapies often focus on memories from the unconscious mind, and then analyzing their meaning to gain insight into the problem. EMDR can short-cut the process and go right to the releasing stage.

Research studies show that EMDR therapy is very effective in helping people process emotionally painful and traumatic experiences. It can help the person to move quickly from emotional distress to peaceful resolution of the issues or events involved. Studies consistently show that treatments with EMDR result in elimination of the targeted emotion or memory. The memory remains, but the negative response is neutralized.

The positive, long-term results of EMDR therapy affect all levels of the person well-being – mental, emotional and physical, so that their responses return to normalcy and health.
