Sammanfattning: The goal of this study was to explore the potential of using video games with binaural beats as an alternative to regular binaural beat therapy. As previous studies have shown, music therapy, binaural beat therapy, and video games have been used for relaxation purposes to varying success. To prove this, three types of therapies were held in order to test their effectiveness. 16 students participated in the test in which their goal was to partake in one of the three therapy sessions, with two interviews before and after the therapy session. The results showed that a video game therapy with binaural beats could work as an alternative to a standard music therapy session, and that the binaural beats improved the relaxing factor in a video game. However, this area of study is quite new, which means more studies would be needed to ascertain the effectiveness of this kind of therapy.
