Healing Art Photography for the heart and soul
Scientific research suggests that nature art in hospitals and clinics promotes healing and facilitates positive outcome. Viewing nature scenes serves as a distraction for the patients and reduces stress and anxiety. There is evidence that it lowers blood pressure, reduces the need for pain medication and increases patient's confidence and trust.
The staff also greatly benefits from the arts as it creates a better work environment and gives them a chance to relax and rejuvinate in an intense and stressful work place.
The preferred art in hospitals is nature landscapes, but also animals and other nature scenes.
