Is EMDR and tapping the same?

This is often the first question I am asked about EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). The answer is, no, it is not ‘the tapping therapy’. The real ‘tapping therapy’ is EFT – emotional freedom technique. Although, incidentally, sometimes forms of tapping are used in EMDR.

How do EMDR tappers work?

In essence, it facilitates communication across the two hemispheres of the brain to help process traumatic events.
