What is EMDR?

The mind can heal naturally in the same way as the body does.

Francine Shapiro is among a group of prominent innovators who discovered that the body has a natural psychological healing process which helps to deal with day-to-day stresses and minor traumas. This process helps reduce discomfort and enables us to assimilate, learn and grow from new experiences.

Much of this natural coping mechanism has been found to occur during sleep, particularly during that period of sleep when we experience rapid eye movement (REM). In 1987, Francine Shapiro used this insight to developed Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), initially as a treatment for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since then, EMDR has evolved into a highly effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of problems.
