Neuros Center offers an additional service called EMDR
EMDR is a technique created almost 20 years ago by Dr. Francine Shapiro to desensitise and reprocess psychological trauma in a natural and effective way. This method is one of the psycho-therapeutic treatments confirmed by a great range of scientific studies. This is a complex therapy that uses bilateral eye movement to stimulate a cerebral hemisphere every time.
The EMDR is related to eyes movements during REM (rapid eyes movement) sleep. In REM sleep stages, we are processing the day’s experiences. The brain processes them and files them in its huge brain data bank.
However, when we have any traumatic experiences it seems the brain cannot process the event, and the incident remains in our brain as a kind of “neurological knot”. It is thought that some of the nightmares are unsuccessful attempts of the brain trying to process traumatic memories.
When we ask the patient to remember any event, situation, traumatic sensation, and we help him to move the eyes in a certain way, it seems the brain receives the help he needs to process the event and file it. The negative charge linked to the event is lost, and positive memories often associated with it, that couldn’t be perceived before, are recovered.
