Virtual Reality (VR) treatment
Technology has been part of our lives for a very long time. It helps us in a multitude of medical contexts, whether we’re talking about research for treatments, accurate diagnoses or complicated operations. It is to be expected that it will also be part of the therapeutic process to relieve anxiety and depression. Virtual reality can be used effectively to enhance and improve traditional treatment methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy and exposure therapy. This technology allows us to work in a way that cannot be replicated in real life, for example, for those with a fear of flying a take-off can be simulated, all without leaving the office. Studies show that VR helps treat phobias, anxiety and depression.
Transcranial stimulation treatment
Transcranial stimulation therapy also helps when used alongside psychotherapy. It creates a magnetic field to induce a small electric current in a specific part of the brain; the current comes from the magnetic field induced by an electromagnetic coil, which delivers pulses through the scalp. It is a therapy for the whole body and has a proven impact on human health. The touch is very gentle and therapists have a very good knowledge of human anatomy. The therapy is effective in cases of dysfunction in the skull and pelvis, vision and hearing disorders, sinus pain, hyperactivity, concentration problems or chronic stress. These technologies are validated by scientific research over the last 10 years.
