Labyrinth Psychological Services Offers Innovative EMDR Therapy to Worcester, MA Patients Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a powerful tool for patients suffering from trauma. Licensed doctors and therapists around the country have been shocked. The objective in trauma treatment is to help individuals move past trauma by processing it. EMDR has become one of the most effective and efficient trauma treatments since its development in 1987. Our Worcester patients report greater feelings or relief, levity, and composure after a traumatic experience. Contrary to what many believe, trauma is not necessarily a single, tragic event. Traumatic experiences are defined according to an individual’s reaction to such an experience. Sometimes, otherwise unremarkable childhood memories can cause powerful and traumatic memories for adults. Labyrinth Psychological Services believes that no one should have to live with trauma. Licensed practitioners at Labyrinth Psychological Services practice EMDR therapy in group and individual settings in a location convenient to Worcester.
Worcester’s Leading Practitioners of EMDR Therapy Can Helps Patients Move Past Trauma Our brains process trauma in a way that involves the several parts of the brain. The amygdala (the brain’s “alarm system” communicates with the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex in order to allow us to learn and tell us how to behave, respectively. EMDR therapy helps us to process these memories. Rather than suppressing these disturbing images, or causing them to go away entirely, EMDR helps patients recall these memories without stimulating the sympathetic nervous system (the “flight or flight” response). Therapists employ sets of rapid eye movements in order to engage the patient’s attention and keep the body present in the room. When the individual is grounded by the safe rhythm of rapid eye movement in order to gently invite the trauma, and the overwhelming negative thoughts and emotions surrounding the trauma, to be processed. Labyrinth Psychological Services features Worcester and the Greater Boston Area’s leading providers of EMDR treatment. For Worcester patients processing small- and large-scale traumatic experiences, or feeling emotionally arrested to any extent, EMDR therapy at Labyrinth Psychological Services can help. Call today.
