My therapist suggests we do emdr via video, which I have no problems with. But are there any decent emdr home equipment for sale? If you can recommend any, or simply know of any, please let me know.

Yes. My therapist suggested them for everyday use. I use them when walking, sleeping, working. You can put them in your pockets, hold them in your hands, wear them around your wrists or ankles. They work via app from your phone or manually and they can be set on a timer. They are a little pricey, but I realize the company is small and likely isn't mass producing these things like a Toyota car... I hope this helps. They have a website that provides a lot of information.Fascinating. This is just too good to be true. Wrists, so they can be turned on all the while going about daily life, and they're about as effective as regular EMDR light.
It would be great to try, as I have some stuff that happened year before last that has been feeling like yesterday, stuff that would be amazing to quench. It's been spinning around every day for 1.5 years. Maybe such bi-tapp wrist tappers could do the trick.
May I ask, are they beneficial for sleep for you as well? I see it says on their website that they may improve sleep.

EMDR was developed after Dr Shapiro noticed a marked difference in the trauma clients she saw in session whilst walking in the woods outside of her office, than the clients she saw IN the office. Even when it was the same durn client in 2 different settings. So she set out to find some kind of scientific basis for the drastically different results. The whole “that’s weird” forming the basis of most earth shaking discoveries in science.
EMDR? Is “just” an attempt to make a walk-in-the-woods able to happen anywhere. Including sitting in a broom closet, or on the moon, or wherever.
((Clearly, it’s not “just” that; it’s that the brain processes information & memories differently when it’s ALSO scanning in different directions / depths... and that’s also why people get motion sick walking in the woods/jungle/reading in the car/etc., it seriously plays havoc with neurological processes when there are different depths/bilateral stimulation in play. Sometimes in good ways, sometimes in nauseating ones.))
Bilateral stimulation is the common thread... whether visual, audial, touch, or movement based.
