In a review of the current state of the art and predictions of future developments in the integration of VR into psychotherapy, two of the early VR pioneers, Skip Rizzo and Ken Graap (Glantz, Rizzo and Graap, 2003) presented an excellent forecast about potential developments in this field that are still relevant. Since the major application of VR enhanced Psychotherapy has been for treatment of anxiety disorders, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been demonstrated to be the treatment of choice for these disorders, we focus on the integration of VR into CBT.

18] Harvard studies have demonstrated that human volunteers can use biofeedback to achieve significant short-term changes in blood pressure and heart rate. Some people can even be trained to increase their heart rate while decreasing their blood pressure. Current research using biofeedback to treat hypertension has proved somewhat encouraging, but results have not been certain enough to establish biofeedback as a standard treatment for the disease. The body's own natural biofeedback is comprised of the impulses received by the brain from our muscle tissue and visceral organs.
