What is CBT and ACT?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) are psychological treatments that provide you with tools to cope with life stressors and improve your well-being. These therapies assist you in becoming aware of the factors that negatively impact your mental health and show you alternative strategies to respond to them more effectively. These treatments have also been shown to improve the quality of life and functioning of people with chronic pain.
Our Program
Pain Care VR integrates therapeutic principles from ACT and CBT to help you cope better with stress and chronic pain. Our immersive experiences explore the connection between your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and pain. We introduce you to mindfulness through interactive breath awareness, breathing training, and meditative practices. Our Pain Care VR program encourages you to finally shift the focus away from your pain to the enjoyment you can regain.
