I specialize in EMDR. The expression, "fright or flight", sums up what happens when we experience trauma. We often freeze and whatever body sensations, emotions or feelings we had at that time can remain stuck in our brains. It is the eye movements and /or bi-lateral stimulation that moves the emotions and associated sensations along our neural pathways, thereby releasing us.
