Will EMDR/Eye Movements Cause or Increase the Frequency of Seizures?
There is no indication that EMDR will cause seizures. In thousands of cases there have been only three reports of seizures occurring with people already diagnosed with epilepsy. Two of these cases occurred when using a lightbar. One case seemed to be caused by the processing of an old seizure. The client later reported that her experience made later seizures more manageable. There is no indication that EMDR will increase the frequency of seizures.
