A PORTAL FOR HEALING TRAUMA
Eye Movement Integration (EMI) uses eye movements to reactivate the natural healing processes of the brain.
This avant-garde neurotherapeutic technique produces very rapid results, definitively and completely freeing the client from the problematic effects of overwhelming experiences. The technique is applicable not only to major traumas…but also to any situation that may result in a chronic and uncontrollable emotional reaction.3
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Sports Traumatic Stress Disorder (STSD) are quite common.
PTSD affects combat veterans, victims of violence or abuse, first responders, car or work-related accident victims, cardiac patients, and those facing cancer or other serious health issues. STSD affects elite athletes, weekend warriors, and those experiencing activity-related physical and/or emotional injury.
An event may become traumatic when it is overwhelming to the nervous system and causes a lot of distress. It is real. And it lingers.
The human brain naturally creates internal responses to both internal and external events in our lives.
When an incident is emotionally charged, sometimes the brain fragments the information and it doesn’t get fully integrated into long-term memory. The information – images, sounds, feelings, smells and even taste – remains activated in the emotional part of our brain known as the Limbic System. With this stressor ‘hanging around’, unhealthy emotional reactions get triggered and often sabotage relationships with self and others, hampering the overall quality of life – at home, at work, and at play.
EMI acts as a mediator; the individual pieces of information become whole so they may now inform rather than harm.
