The Healing Power of Tech

Award-winning creator of video series Digital Futures, Shivvy Jervis, guides us around the very, very near future – a place where technology is a partner to our psychological wellbeing

Picture this: you walk into a spa on a weekday evening, primed for your relaxation experience... you’ve had a gruelling few weeks, you aren’t sleeping and have been suffering with anxiety for months.

Led through serene, amber-lit corridors, you enter a dark, cool treatment room. You release a half-sigh. Rather than being handed a robe, you are given a white, smooth headset. Its curved corners emit gently pulsing jet-blue lights.

You slip on a feather-light harness and are asked to step onto a circular base that swivels with each turn of your body, before choosing your ‘experience’ or ‘environment’. A short while later, you step off and slowly readjust to the room. Already, your previously shallow breathing is steadier, your mind feels clearer and your shoulders sag with relief.
