Virtual reality therapy, also called virtual reality exposure therapy, allows you to enter a virtual world that is carefully constructed to increase your exposure to negative stimuli, so you can build resilience and emotional strength. Becoming engrossed in a virtual world can also help you shift your attention away from pain. Virtual reality therapy makes use of a virtual world created by VR technology to put you in situations you can learn from. If the goal is to overcome a fear, you might be exposed to the thing you fear, with exposure gradually increasing over several sessions. The therapist also provides talk therapy before, after, and sometimes during your virtual experience to help you process what you’ve seen in the healthiest way possible.
