How We Can Help

As Flourish is a not for profit organisation who are constantly seeking new technologies that will aid treatment for our clients in their recovery and wellbeing, we are pleased to announce that we are the first organisation in the North West to implement VR technology into mental health, eating disorders, obesity and wellbeing treatment and therapy.

 

The application of VR Therapy for therapies aimed to treat anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and many more has consistently proven effective. VR therapy opens many doors for us as qualified and specialist health and wellbeing practitioners in regard to the accessibility and interventions we can provide for you or a loved one.

 

Patients treated with VR therapy require 33% fewer sessions, meaning that the recovery time and process could be much more effective for anyone suffering with mental health, eating disorders, obesity or wellbeing issues.

What is VR Therapy?

Virtual reality can be defined as the computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors. A substantial amount of research has been conducted into the success of virtual reality therapy, with a 2017 paper showing that both statistically and clinically meaningful reductions in PTSD, anxiety and depression symptoms occurred after including VR in treatments.

VR Therapy improves treatment of multiple disorders, as the therapeutic modules allow a total immersion, control of the parameters of the exhibition, and the possibility of repetition of the scenes.
