SOMATIC EMDR

EMDR is the acronym for Eye Motor Desensitization and Reprocessing. It utilizes bilateral stimulation which activates both hemispheres of the brain; allowing for the processing of emotions, memories, and other traumas stuck in the nervous system. EMDR also targets cognitive limiting beliefs that often arise out of trauma.

The Somatic addition to EMDR helps with deeper embodiment while processing trauma. This is interweaved into EMDR sessions through tracking sensations, deepening awareness, gentle movement, and self-regulation. All to help identify the root of the pain and alchemize it into a restoration of safety and agency within.

Somatic EMDR allows for a deeper attunement into our innate healing capacity. We begin to listen to the stories of our bodies inside of a structured approach to healing that targets limiting beliefs, emotions, and sensations.
