Need help treating a mental illness but aren't sure which type of therapy will help you? If so, you might consider alternative treatment that doesn't involve medication. There are many different treatments so it's important to get familiar with them all and work with a professional to decide what's best for you.
Today, we are going to discuss EDMR. This is a new therapy that is designed to work in place of medication and hypnotherapy. While it is a bit similar to hypnotizing, it's also very different. The method is becoming popular and below, you'll find more information about it. If you're searching for an affordable therapist in Asheville, NC, call Legacy Freedom.
According to edmr-therapy.com, the method helps to revisit the traumatic moment or incident, recalling feelings surrounding the experience, as well as any negative thoughts, feelings and memories.
A windshield wiper like movement of fingers in front of one's face helps to focus the individual and allow them to recall a memory vividly. Once they've been recalled, the eye movements process feelings and emotions and then the therapist has the patient talk about positive thoughts, feelings and memories. These thoughts will replace the negative ones.
EDMR can treat the following traumatic experiences one might encounter throughout a lifetime:
- Anxiety or panic
- Bad temper
- Brooding or worrying
- Car accident
- Childhood abuse
- Childhood trauma
- Injury of a loved one
- Loss of a loved one
- Low self-esteem
- Natural disaster
- Overwhelming fears
- Panic attacks
- Performance anxiety
- Physical abuse
- Post-traumatic stress
- Relationship problems
- Sexual abuse
- Stage fright
- Trouble sleeping
- Victims of violent crimes
- Witness to violence
- Work accident
It's possible you've never heard of this type of treatment before. That's because it's just begun to gain popularity as a mental disorder therapy. It can also work for substance abuse issues, as well. Be sure to contact Legacy to learn more if you think this method of treatment might work for you or someone you love.
As we previously mentioned in another blog post about EDMR, when disturbing memories are triggered, it's different for everyone. It doesn't have to be from a military experience. Oftentimes, it can be abuse as a child, car accident or other traumatizing experience. Don't ignore these symptoms if you've been subjected to them.
Legacy Freedom can help. EDMR treatment can work to help anyone with these types of disorders. Keep reading to learn more.
