Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing uses a technique called bi-lateral stimulation (eye movements) to connect to memory networks in the brain.
This connection, with the help of a EMDR trained therapist, lets your brain change the way your memories affect your thoughts, beliefs and feelings. It can help with old and recent trauma, childhood wounds and anxiety.
YOGA & SELF-COMPASSION
I appreciate an 8-limb yogic path and believe that Pranayama (mindful breathing, Dhyana (meditation) and Asana (physical postures) are all equally important to your holistic self.
I also utilize forms of clinical self-compassion in the healing work. It is a valuable tool to silence the self-critic and fight shame.
(HAES, Intuitive Eating, self-love) Too many people are on a very dysfunctional and painful journey with their bodies.
I see so much more hate than love in this area, which is why it is so important to incorporate it into the healing work.
