Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a powerful therapy for moving through adverse experiences that may get stuck in the brain and in the body.  EMDR may help with panic attacks, phobias, general anxiety, complicated grief, abuse recovery, disturbing memories and even pain recovery. We have years of research that shows EMDR’s effectiveness and it is considered an evidence-based practice.  The most convincing of these can be found here http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0045753. Which shows that brain activity before EMDR therapy is primarily in the amygdala (where high reactivity and the flight or fight response operates) and after EMDR therapy, the activity is in the prefrontal cortex which is the part of the brain that is in charge of emotion regulation, impulse control and problem solving among other things.
