CP testimonial
What They’re Saying
"What has been interesting is just putting yourself in a setting that isn't yourself, which detaches your thoughts that it is you doing the activities, and so I don't know if that distraction is what it seems easier to do the activities or if its something other than that but that has been interesting me."

—C.P., Patient

CH testimonial
What They’re Saying
"I think benefits gained from Karuna when feeling and doing the motions...were that you are able to get your mind to stop thinking about the pain itself. I didn't have any barriers to using the virtual reality."

JR testimonial
What They’re Saying
"This treatment helped me push beyond the boundaries that I have had with my pain. With the VR exercises I could go beyond my former pain area. I have been able to cut my oral pain meds in half. Overall I found it to be a very beneficial experience and I am very thankful."

J.F. testimonial
What They’re Saying
"I really wish this had been around when I was in rehab, that would have been the supreme benefit for laying groundwork for what you can do now and in the future...this would have been very beneficial then."

Dr. Adam Saby, Physical Medicine & Rehab
What They’re Saying
“Karuna employs gold-standard treatments with new technology to manage chronic pain. Their virtual reality software uses the body's most dominant sense, the visual system, to rewire the brain. It’s safe, easy to pick up, and available for home use.”

—Dr. Adam Saby
M.C. testimonial
What They’re Saying
"The main takeaway is being more aware of the pain and understanding it might be coming from your brain than your actual location that hurts...I am more aware of what could cause pain and how to trick my brain into not focusing on the pain and use alternative thought methods to take away the pain as opposed to taking pain medicine."

—M.C., Patient
