Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful approach to psychotherapy that promotes accelerated healing from emotional distress. EMDR helps those with severe trauma, PTSD, anxiety, fears, disturbing memories, grief, guilt, and other emotional issues. Studies show accelerated benefits of using EMDR in overall therapy treatment plan, and our therapists at Mind and Body are specialty training in EMDR therapy in Reno.
EMDR trauma therapy is recognized as an effective treatment by the American Psychiatric Association and the World Health Organization. It is practiced by over 100,000 clinicians worldwide. EMDR treatment is based on the idea that certain past experiences can impact your mental health today due to unresolved emotional wounds.
Through a complex mechanism that simultaneously addresses the mind, body, and emotions, EMDR facilitates the processing of disturbing information or blocks in your nervous system. By reprocessing these earlier experiences, your brain makes more appropriate cognitive and emotional connections, develops adaptive behaviors, and offers new insights and positive self-concepts. The process reduces excess negative emotions, distorted self-beliefs, and uncomfortable physical body sensations.
Patients also learn from past experiences, develop positive beliefs about themselves, and experience increased peace and well-being. Get in touch with our expert Reno therapists.
