Treating Fear of Flying Using Biofeedback and Virtual Reality Therapy
Fear of flying is a growing problem, that currently affects about 25 Million Americans.
Behavior therapy programs for the treatment of Flight Anxiety using biofeedback and virtual reality therapy have been proven to be the most effective.
The VRBP (Virtual Reality Biofeedback Program ) is based largely on psychological principals of Exposure therapy and Desensitization. Exposure is delivered through the virtual reality simulator and relaxation training occurs using state of the art biofeedback. Using biofeedback allows you to develop the proper neurological relaxation response and ensures you are you doing it correctly. The change in your system occurs when you are locked into the “relaxation response” using biofeedback while simultaneously being exposed to the flight situations- this reprograms the nervous system to associate new emotions with flying and release anxious feelings.
