The journey to health and well-being just got an upgrade.

Combining the forces of Neuroplasticity and the Subconscious Mind through Virtual Reality Therapy.

While Virtual Reality has been making waves in the gaming world for many years, it is just now starting to gap into main stream use and establishing itself as the most effective therapeutic tool in decades.

It’s difficult to appreciate just how remarkable Virtual Reality (VR) is until you have experienced it for yourself. Although you're consciously aware that what you’re seeing isn’t real, your subconscious mind and body behave as if it were. VR’s ability to "con" the brain, makes it extremely effective for both psychological therapy as well as treating physical ailments.

Individuals tend to feel more comfortable using it to make changes because the scenarios are’t real and don't involve any risk. The ability to create a virtual reality setting specific for the client's needs, allows the therapist to present the least difficult situations first and progress into more difficult situations at a pace that is comfortable for the client.

VR Therapy offers many advantages over standard treatment options. Individuals are able to try multiple courses of action in a setting that feels real and allows for progress that is faster and safer than it would be in real-life situations. Moreover, clients aren't required to wait for a real-life situation before they can work through blocks and try new skills and solutions.

Mental illness affects one in four people across the world

Mental illness is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Current treatment methods are often medication centric and come with a long list of side effects.

For those who seek therapeutic solutions to restore their emotional well-being, virtual reality therapy offers new hope.

How VR Therapy Works

VR Therapy activates the motor cortex and sensory system in a way that convinces the brain that it is having a real life experience.

VR Therapy activates neuroplasticity, allowing for rapid, lasting and automatic changes in as little as one or two sessions.

VR Therapy has the ability to tap into the brain’s pathways, making relatively rapid changes on a subconscious and even cellular level.

What happens inside of the VR headset has the power to permanently change what you experience outside of the headset.
