Abstract

Various approaches are available to evaluate the effectiveness of stress therapy. In this research, we compared virtual reality based stress therapy and imaginary technique which includes cultural elements such as typical Malaysian environment in 3D, Mozart, soothing breathing exercise and audio. It examines meditation effectiveness between virtual reality based stress therapy and imaginary technique using Electroencephalograph. The effectiveness of the virtual reality therapy and imaginary technique are measured by NeuroSky eSense Meditation level. Findings for both approaches indicated that there are positive changes in participants’ meditation state. Moreover, the virtual reality participants were observed to be in a better meditation state (significantly different) compared to the imaginary participants at the end of the study.
