Why using virtual reality for eating disorders ?
With your virtual reality headset, you will be immersed in an imaginary environment similar to reality. A virtual reality therapy based on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
You will be exposed to different situations provoking envy (meal tray, chocolates, candies…), to silhouette tests as well as to the representation of your body image.
This will allow you to improve your feelings and beliefs about your body while working directly with the reflection you have of yourself.
How does it work?
You will receive a virtual reality headset with unlimited access to our software, or, if you are already have your headset, you can directly have access to the software. Thus you will be able to work on your body image and immerse yourself in different exhibitions related to food.
Simultaneously, twice a month, you have appointments with a psychologist to help you with your eating disorders. During these consultations, you are using the virtual reality headset. The psychologist and yourself will discuss your disorder in order to understand it and give you the necessary tools to learn to manage and accept your body.
At the end of the 3 months subscription, you can keep going on the therapy if you want to.

When I was 25 years old, I had a breakdown following a breakup. I didn’t dare to go see a professional to help me get through it, so I ate to fill my emotional void. For years, I fell into a vicious cycle and continued to overeat. I didn’t like myself anymore and I couldn’t even look at myself in the mirror. Virtual reality has helped me deal with this problem more easily and without having to travel. I am finally starting to find stability in my life.
Célia P. 41 years old
Having eating disorders since I was a teenager, I often went to see doctors to solve this problem. But the solutions I was given were mostly to do sports or to eat better. And yet, despite my good will, nothing changed. I understood through my virtual reality therapy that the problem was elsewhere. I worked on my emotions, my relationship with my body and my self-esteem which was very low. Little by little, with the help of my psychologist, I am finding a life where food no longer controls me.
