describes a childhood cancer patient her experience with the Magic Horizons VR applications in “COLUMBA – Das Palliativ-Portal Magazin”. “In addition to numerous senior citizens who are calmer and in a more positive mood as a result of their digital journeys, nursing staff also report their own virtual time-outs, which make them more relaxed, more balanced and thus ultimately more stress-resistant.”

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…’

“Meditate with Virtual Reality”
Author: Helmut Martin-Jung, www.sueddeutsche.de, 19.01.2021
The newspaper’s Internet portal of Süddeutsche Zeitung, a leading newspaper in Germany, published an article about Magic Horizons.
According to a study by the University of Exeter, VR nature videos trigger real happiness.
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.

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.’
