What is Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing?
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing works with simple right-to-left eye movements accompanied by relaxing music that alternates from one ear to the other.
The stimulation from the eye movements, accompanied by music, helps to activate both the right and left hemispheres of the brain.
Working together, the two hemispheric regions of the brain help the neuropsychological system to accelerate healing and to liberate negative patterns and blockages. In a step-by-step sequence, difficult images are processed in the mind-body system, thus allowing a balanced state to develop.
How can Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing help?
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is a collaborative process whereby we access past experiences that set the groundwork for current problems.
When a trauma occurs it seems to get locked into the nervous system, encoded with particular images, sounds, thoughts and feelings. These memories are stored as strong feelings and sudden moods that come on without one realising it.
Locating the source of the disturbance is the first healing step. Through eye movement and other bilateral stimulation, stored information can be unlocked, allowing the mind-body system to process the experience.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is an effective technique for resolving:
