EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a technique of brief therapy It is used to desensitise traumatic memories and reprogramme them using eye movements.
EMDR was invented by a social worker in the USA called Francine Shapiro. One day when she was thinking about a traumatic memory in a park, she noticed that her eyes were blinking rapidly and moving from side to side. She immediately felt better and realised that she could no longer remember the traumatic event. Francine Shapiro had made a revolutionary discovery. By moving your eyes from right to left and thinking about a traumatic memory, you could remove the memory and get rid of the emotional charge associated with it.
This was the birth of EMDR in 1987.
The human brain does not distinguish between what is real and imaginary. For it, an event that is dreamed, rethought or experienced in the present moment triggers the same emotional charge, especially if it was traumatic. When your brain cannot digest a shock, you will trigger what is known in EMDR as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As for a session hypnosis, the session EMDR always begins with a thorough interview to identify the problem, the discomfort felt and the cause of the stress syndrome. After you have focused on the trauma you have experienced, to the point of seeing the image as real as possible in your mind, the EMDR practitioner will stimulate your eyes laterally from right to left, asking you to follow his finger or a pen for one minute. The EMDR practitioner will also tap on your knees and shoulders. The aim is to activate the bilateral stimulation, so that your brain digests the traumatic event and its different aspects. As a result of this EMDR session, you are now emotionally and permanently healed from the trauma.
