Methods to assess the effects of sensory stimulations on wellness


Abstract:

The use of sensorial immersion relaxation devices or practices becomes more and more frequent to face the demand of wellness in our western society, where stress is a hallmark. These various devices use auditory, visual, tactile and olfactory stimuli, as well as a mix of them. At the opposite, some stimuli in the environment could have negative repercussion on our well-being. However, methods for scientifically assessing the physiological and psychological impact of these sensorial stimulations are sorely lacking. This volume of JIMIS will present recent work that may prove useful in the future for scientifically evaluating the impact on the well-being of different types of sensory stimulation, desired or a contrario suffered.


Keywords:

Wellness, relaxation, stress, sensorial immersion, sensorial environment, devices, physiological and psychological evaluations, methods.
