Virtual Reality Therapy

Virtual Reality Therapy involves the use of specialized VR headsets and interactive computer-generated environments to expose individuals to their specific fears, triggers, or challenging situations. By immersing patients in these scenarios, therapists can guide them through desensitization and coping techniques, helping them confront and manage their anxieties in a gradual and controlled manner. This form of therapy aims to provide a more engaging and realistic experience compared to traditional therapeutic approaches, fostering better treatment outcomes and increased patient engagement.
