Abstract

This paper discusses about comparing different sound types used in stress therapy among Malaysians. The aim of the stress therapy is to reduce stress among users, thus a virtual reality environment was used which replaces the traditional guided therapy sessions. Two sessions were conducted at different timings; each session using different sound type, (zikr and classical music). By the end of each session, comparisons of stress level were made. Stress therapy with zikr as background sound produced better impact on reducing stress level among participants. This paper focuses on the effect of sound towards reducing stress.
