EMDR – Trauma Release

What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a process that facilitates trauma resolution. It expedites the healing process for individuals grappling with symptoms and emotional distress stemming from disturbing life experiences.

Trauma Release - EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing with Dr. Stephen Feig

The Brain Wave Center is proud to offer EMDR as part of our comprehensive approach to assisting our clients with emotional health concerns.

How does EMDR work?

Just as the body naturally works to close a cut, the brain's information processing system tends toward resolving emotional health issues. However, if this system is hindered by the impact of a distressing event, emotional wounds persist, often leading to intense suffering.


EMDR as a natural healing process

EMDR therapy works by removing these blocks, allowing the natural healing process to resume for a wide range of emotional health issues such as:

  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Addiction
  • Trauma
  • Grief
  • Flashbacks

It is advisable to consult our team to determine if this therapy is suitable for your specific emotional health concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions About EMDR Training

The frequency of sessions varies based on the nature of the issue and the client's history. Studies consistently show that approximately three sessions can effectively process a single traumatic event for most individuals. The extent of EMDR needed depends on the complexity of the individual's history.

Like any psychotherapy, temporary increases in distress may temporarily occur during EMDR therapy. Distressing memories may surface, and unexpected reactions, including heightened emotions or physical sensations, may arise during sessions. Additionally, the processing of incidents may continue post-treatment, bringing forth other memories, feelings, or dreams. This is all part of the mind’s natural healing process.
