Dr. Lisa Masterson Explains the Power of VR.
Have you ever wanted to just escape?
This new technology can take you anywhere you want to go. And it’s not just for video Gamers, It is also being used to help people meditate and treat certain mental issues and possibly diagnose some medical conditions. Patients receiving virtual reality therapy navigate through digitally created environments and perform certain tasks often tailored to treat a specific disorder. It is most often used currently for phobias, PTSD, body dysmorphia, to help stroke patients and those diagnosed with autism and improve social skills.
VRT uses specially programmed computers and visual immersion devices and artificially created environments to give the patient a simulated experience that can then be used to diagnose and treat certain conditions. We have it in the spa for patients to relax with but give it a try. I think it is a whole new frontier. Exciting!
