Tonart, Issue 3, 2019: ‘Magic Horizons, Reducing Stress in 3D’ Article

‘If we can’t just shake off day-to-day stress, we need to take some time out. Lengthy holidays, a cure or a long-distance trip can help us escape the mental hamster wheel. However, there are also remedies that can be effective with a small daily dose, the multimedia specialists at Magic Horizons say: trips to virtual worlds that pair the visual dream sceneries with 3D sounds that immerse the listener, putting them into a state of deep relaxation without the need for a plane ticket or a heavy suitcase…’

Fairy tales in virtual reality

People of all ages love fairy tales, and we need them today more than ever.

Experiencing the fairy tales of your childhood in VR is an intense journey into a world full of magic and fantasy. A world filled with fundamentally human needs and dreams.
Immersing yourself with a VR headset in a land of kings, giants and dwarves allows us to completely switch off from the here and now, from the worries and difficulties of everyday life, no matter how big or small. Fairy tales are much more than simply exciting and captivating stories. Spending time with fairy tales – precious time – is almost a luxury!

The importance of music in preventing stress

Music has been proven to prevent stress. It can help to reduce stress in terms of physiological, cognitive and emotional factors. In the brain, music has effects of similar intensity to physiological reward systems. When music is processed in the brain, it’s not just auditory systems that are involved. Language, motor and visual zones are also active in this process. So music that is produced to play to these effects creates “feelings of happiness”.  They break the continuous tension caused by stress and strengthen resilience. This effect is amplified massively when music is combined with virtual reality environments.

Ready for a vacation? Need a little time off despite Corona?

Listen to the meditation, the babbling of the brook and the relaxing music. The visual 360-degree sensations in VR significantly enhance the effect: there are no distractions, and you can completely immerse yourself in the calming worlds.

STERN, No. 35/2019: ‘Pain relief: immersing themselves in virtual worlds helps patients’ Article

‘Patients who used virtual reality glasses felt less pain for a longer period of time than those who distracted themselves by watching TV,’ a US study has found. The palliative effects lasted for up to 72 hours. Patients with extremely severe pains benefited most from the glasses. The mechanism by which this operates, it is believed, is that experiences in the virtual reality realm distract the patient so much that their pains are perceived less intensely.’
(Source/citation: STERN magazine, no. 35, 22/8/2019, page 18).
