EMDR, of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a psychotherapy that helps individuals who are dealing with emotional distress from past life experiences heal. With EMDR, this healing can take place much faster than was previously assumed. Through EMDR, the treatment relies on the patient's own eye movements, which are produced by following the movements of the therapist’s hands. As this occurs, the therapist while asking the patient to recall a disturbing memory that is contributing to the emotional distress. As the patient recalls the memory, the eye movements help to desensitize the power of the emotions. The memory should become less and less traumatic as the therapy continues.
