s Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, a kind of psychotherapy treatment that usefully designed to alleviate the distress that is associated by traumatic memories. It enables a person to heal from symptoms and emotional distress that is a result of life disturbing experiences. It is said that emotional pain requires long time for it to heal, but with EMDR therapy healing could be as just as fast and easy.
EMDR can heal mind that are suffering from psychological trauma, it is a helpful way especially to those who want to forget all the bad experience that he been through and engage for a better change and a better life. EMDR is particularly known for treating PSTD OR post-traumatic stress disorder, in the process it does not rely on talk therapy or any medications but rather it just focuses on the rapid eye movement of the patient. The eye movement can dampen the emotional memories and the past traumatic events that are experienced by the patient.
EMDR is done by a special therapist, during the process he would recall the disturbing events that happen into the patient before. The therapist will move his fingers back and forth in front of the patient’s face while the patient is following the hand motion using only the eyes. Aside from this the therapist will also guide the patient to shift into thoughts that are more pleasant, through this it weakens the negative emotions that are experiencing by the patient. The only main purpose of it is to wash out all the bad memories, and the traumas that have experience by the patient and turn it into positive thoughts.
EMDR is greatly been effective in healing traumas and other negative experiences, but with all those good effects are the consequences that it can cause to the patient that will undergo its process. When the patient is undergoing EMDR therapy he might experience distressing and some unresolved memories, some of the patient can also experience some reactions during the treatment. Through it the patient can experience a high level of emotions and some physical sensations.
As the patient will undergo the treatment session might have problems in processing the incidents that he had before and sometimes the bad things that he experience before might still be continue. If not controlled the patient can experience dreams, and the memories before might also emerge. Because of the memories that are flashing back the patient might suffer in a painful migraine and anxieties.
The EMDR treatment is helpful but sometimes it can cause pain especially on the feelings and mind of the patient, because as the therapist would recall the negative events that happen to the patient, all of it could flashback again on her mind and he would experience again the pain the he had before. Some of the patient could not control their feeling that is why some of them will tend to breakdown and will experience anxiety and dreams of the traumatic experience that happened on their life.
