EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro, is a therapeutic modality that helps relieve distress associated with traumatic memories. It utilizes bilateral stimulation—alternating stimulus to left and right sides of the body—through eye movement, tapping or holding small “tappers” that vibrate on alternating sides. The goal of EMDR is to transform traumatic memories into more neutral autobiographical memories — so that you can hold awareness of an experience without reliving it. To learn more, click here.
