The instant invention provides a medium including a program operable within a virtual reality device which is designed for perfecting mental visualization within the mind of a subject sufficient alone to effect a desired neurological and/or physiological change within the body of the subject, even in the substantial absence of any physical movement by the subject. The program includes a dynamic scenario that is designed to communicate in chronological order: (I.) a condition which requires a remedy; (ii.) a mode for effecting the remedy; (iii.) the performance of the mode so as to effect the remedy; and, (iv.) rectification of the condition through the performance of the mode. The program is interspersed with audible, visual or combined audible/visual subliminal stimuli, designed to aid a subject in achieving the goal. It also provides the medium in combination with a virtual reality device and a method of using the same. The steps of the method include: operatively interfacing the program with the device and mounting the device on the subject; and, running the program. Optionally, the program can be designed to precondition of the subject's mind, such as inducing a state of meditation or hypnosis, or combinations thereof, and thereafter communicate a metaphoric or real, or combined real and metaphoric, scenario to the subject. The scenario of the program can be designed to exist in real time, real space, compressed time, compressed space, expanded time, expanded space, or any combination thereof, real or metaphoric or any combination of real and metaphoric. Optionally the program is further designed to enable (motor) interaction between the subject and/or an operator external to the preconditioning and the device.
