Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing works to access traumatic memories and then reprocess them after moving the disturbance from the subconscious to the conscious parts of our brain through bilateral stimulation and mindfulness practices. EMDR is individualized much like any other therapy modality.
After successful treatment with EMDR therapy, affective distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated, and physiological arousal is reduced. During EMDR therapy the client attends to emotionally disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on an external stimulus( EMDR.com)
