Somatic EMDR

Somatic Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

Natural processing joins Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) with a focus on the body and central nervous system. It is especially powerful in healing from childhood abuse and neglect. It is effective in helping individuals move beyond pain to enjoying a powerful recovery.
We can become “activated” when we have an involuntary nervous system reaction that makes life hard. This can be experienced as an increased heart rate, panic, anxiety, or a fight/flight response. Alternatively, we might experience an involuntary freeze response that leads us to feeling “spacey” and disengaged. These reactions are often the result of a nervous system response in which there is not verbal language. This treatment method is particularly helpful with integrating new experiences with past experiences. It allows you to make thoughtful and proactive meaning from your life experiences by engaging our natural ability to heal.
