EMDR and Flash Technique
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing helps us get to the root of the pain creating more sustainable change over time. We'll use memory maps through the body to find where it all started and became reinforced. Once we've got our map we'll use bilateral stimulation, using the back and forth movement of the eyes or hands. The bilateral stimulation will help to process old, stuck stuff in a way that's more helpful. Essentially, we're rewiring the brain for stability and connection.
Bilateral stimulation is something that happens naturally in our deepest sleep cycle if we're lucky enough to get there. Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep is our brain's processing system. If we don't get to REM sleep we can wake up on the wrong side of the bed and if we do we typically wake more rested and ready for the day. We'll use this natural and normal thing the body does to help your whole system metabolize what's been stuck for you for way too long.
One of the greatest things about EMDR is that you don't have to talk about the horrible or highly stressful things that happened to you, you'll just need to think of them. One of the greatest things about Flash Technique is we don't even have to think of it for too long before we focus on something positive and engaging. The results are incredible because we're limiting conscious exposure. It's possible to do the work without having to relive it.
