Relaxation in Virtual Reality.
Available at iwa Spa December 2020.
WHY VR? While it may seem counter-intuitive to use technology as an escape, however in reality (pardon the pun!) it provides a whole new level of wellness escape and relaxation.
1. Be transported into unexplored worlds and exotic destinations
Can’t travel? Dreaming of a vacation? With the introduction of virtual relaxation, you can now explore exotic destinations in the comfort of the spa.
2. Decrease anxiety
Feeling anxious? Stressed? A 2017-study conducted by Psychological Medicine, showed that VR exposure-based treatments reduces anxiety.
3. Increased relaxation
Need to unwind and relax? Humans typically process information through images and that’s why, to establish a relaxing atmosphere, many individuals need the help of guided imagery. VR offers just that!
5. Improved sleep patterns
VR stimulates the brain to produce melatonin while lowering cortisol, thus helping people manage stress and sleep better.
A Helium VR session is a deeply immersive relaxation session. This mini VR vacation will spirit you away from the stresses of everyday life and transport you to a relaxing nature spot such as on a beach or by a gently burbling waterfall. There you can soak in the views and be present in nature, while you calm your body down with meditation. Being at one with Nature is proven to loosen off anxiety and focus the mind. A calm and open mind is a healthy mind, and VR can give you a safe place of tranquillity in an otherwise confusing and challenging world. Sessions will be available in 5-30 minute time frames, as an independent spa treatment or an upgrade to an existing treatment.
