Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR) is a very effective treatment for people suffering from PTSD and trauma, and is also used to treat other disorders, such as anxiety, depression, OCD, and more. While other therapy treatments work for a variety of issues, EMDR therapy acts on the idea that trauma lives in the body. EMDR therapy is a specific way to process traumatic memories with a trained professional. Many people who do not respond to traditional therapy receive fast, safe results from EMDR therapy.
