Throughout a lifetime most people will endure a traumatic event. The brain will process the event to the best of its' ability, the remainder will be stored in the hippocampus. The properties of the hippocampus is to store information and to regulate the neurotransmitters. For example, a car accident will result in an increase of the anxiety neurotransmitter which will continue to result in an increase of anxiety until it is properly processed either through dream work or Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (E.M.D.R.) E.M.D.R. copies dream sleep by simulating the bilateral eye movement, which allows stuck memory to be processed through the emotional brain and the smart brain through th Corpus Collusum. The information goes back and forth in the brain, as the eyes go back and forth. Processing trauma using E.M.D.R. allows the trauma to be processed and desensitized, hence no more triggers or trauma. Therapist at Holistic Elements specialize in E.M.D.R. Treatment.
