What is

DISTRACTION THERAPY?

The use of pleasing sensory stimuli to divert attention away from an unpleasant experience.

Personal technology distractions like video games and puzzles can provide strength to endure negative experiences, but Virtual Reality takes this a step further. 

A 360-image is highly immersive and allows individuals to completely transcend their realties.

As soon as [my dad] took the goggles off, he was talking about it and he was thrilled! I don't see that every day.

It's like you're outside. It's all around you so you can turn your head in any direction...I felt really calm going through it. I think I would recommend it to people who were going through treatment.

In a world where the overuse of medications has led to addiction, overdose, and death; finding new alternatives to dealing with pain and mental illness is a priority and VR serves an effective alternative.
