Virtual Reality Works

image232

Virtual Reality has higher rates of success than taking drugs...

 For populations who suffer from PTSD, chronic pain, addiction and eating disorders science has proven that virtual reality has higher rates of success in treatment more than traditional dependency with medications. The reason is virtual reality provides a more intense "mind/body experience" then traditional counseling. Using the 5 senses patients can benefit from the experience of virtual reality. 

image233

PTSD and Virtual Reality

 Virtual Reality has been proven to treat one of the most impactful diagnoses in our country... PTSD. Suicide and violence are on the rise.  Research has shown that after VR treatment those who were diagnosed with PTSD,  65.9% no longer met criteria in a treatment study.

The Mind/Body Connection in VR

 Having therapy in VR is a unique cognitive and physical experience. If you have had therapy before you can still feel the same benefits of talking to your therapist in a safe and confidential space but also get the benefit of the mind/ body experience by using the 5 senses.
