THE SCIENCE
OF VIRTUAL REALITY
& RELAXATION

history

Virtual Reality (VR) is not a new technology, and has over two decades of research supporting its high clinical efficacy. It is a powerful tool for the treatment of mental health & behavioural issues.

••

presence

Studies have shown that Virtual Reality can evoke the same reactions, thoughts and emotions as experiences in a real-world situation. i.e. visiting a virtual beach can make you feel the same way as you would on a real beach!

•••

efficacy

Numerous studies have shown that Virtual Reality based treatments are more efficient and more effective at reducing stress and anxiety than some traditional techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Relax VR studies

Relax VR featured in a study conducted by the Psychology Department of the Universitat de Vic - Universitat Central de Catalunya, which examined the efficacy of VR in inducing relaxation and positive emotions in a non clinical sample. The study found that:

Relax VR was able to significantly reduce the levels of anxiety and negative emotions on the participants.

Relax VR was also able to promote a positive mood in the participants.

The use of VR for relaxation represents a promising approach as a stress management tool.
