What happens in the brain during EMDR therapy? The brain has an ability to rewire itself. With Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, the rewiring process, called neuroplasticity, happens faster and lasts longer.

People may be able to heal from trauma without talking about it. EMDR enables them to observe their experiences in a new way, without the verbal give-and-take with another person.

– Bessel van der Kolk 

WHY EMDR THERAPY?

One When you start your treatment, EMDR can feel weird. There a many skeptics who find it hard to believe that looking at a moving light will help you change your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. The concept does sound a little bizarre, but there is science behind the method. In short, EMDR leads to massive reorganization (or rewiring) of the brain. But how do we know what actually happens inside the brain?

TRAUMATIC EVENTS LEAVE MARKS IN THE BRAIN

Thanks to modern brain scanners, scientists now know what happens in the brain as a result of exposure to traumatic events. If you were traumatized and you are exposed to reminders of the trauma, your emotional brain becomes activated. One particular part of the emotional brain that gets activated is the amygdala – the smoke detector of the brain. When that happens, in a fraction of a second, your brain tells your whole body that you are in danger.

Your brain, or at least of a part of it, believes that the danger is present. You know that you are safe but you don’t feel safe. Your logic fails. But why? 

WHY CAN’T YOUR LOGIC HELP YOU GET OUT OF THIS EMOTIONAL PAIN? 

“Tasty food, set inside a lovely coffee house.”

It was an real incredible experience for me. The quality of food was only matched by the quality of service I got. I wish I can keep the flavor in my mouth for ever. Thanks for making the evening an unforgettable one.
