Side Effects of EMDR

The effects of EMDR treatment don’t just stop immediately once session is over. EMDR generates a certain amount of ‘momentum’ to your thinking, emotions, and conscious awareness. EMDR starts showing you the relationship that you have with your experiences in a new way. At times, it activates a Theta brainwave. It is highly recommended that the body perform some type of movement or anchoring after your session to clear out what was just activated. Consult with your certified EMDR practitioner to find the plan that works for you. Erin refers to it as returning home to yourself. You finally discover who you are by coming into you. This can be a very liberating experience. Imagine doing a yoga class before or after your session.
