My psychologist uses it. It worked on some things and not others -- there was no rhyme nor reason in my case. When it works, it works immediately. I can recall the abusive situation and it has totally lost its sting.

You have to be fairly stable or it can cause a lot of flooding or retraumatization.

I have my eyes closed during it. You don't have to use your eyes. I wear headphones and hold sensors in my hands and the bilateral stimulation comes from beeps on the headphones and buzzes on my hands. He says two modes are better than one. I also have the choice of looking at a bar with lights going back and forth instead of him waving his hand as some practioners do. The eye movements make me dizzy.

It's always worth a try. Good luck.
