Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is a psychotherapy that utilizes bi-lateral stimulation
created through eye movement, hand held pulsers or a light bar.

EMDR THERAPY NYCEMDR is an eight phase protocol that focuses on a traumatic memory or disturbance to reduce the charge of the negative memory and allow the brain to process the event more adaptively. It can be used with children and adults.

EMDR Therapy is the most thoroughly researched therapy method used to treat trauma and PTSD. To date there are more controlled studies on EMDR than on any other method used to treat trauma. A recent study of individuals who experienced military combat, rape, assault, loss of loved ones, disasters and serious accidents, found that nearly 90% had relief from their emotional distress after only three EMDR sessions.
