Healing Gardens incorporate healing principles into the environment, ensuring the presence of tranquility, beauty, comfort, and safety for the benefit of the patients, families, visitors and staff. Healing is enhanced in peaceful, serene environments with access to natural light, sound, smell, and touch. Garden highlights, flowing water and waterfalls, natural plantings, pathways and seating areas, artwork, and green spaces filled with life promote healing.
The calming power of a therapeutic garden will help restore the patient's nerves, speed injury recovery and comfort patients through the transition to a healthful existance . A calm patient is better able to cope with stressful treatment, diminishing the damaging effects of stress on the healing process.
A garden design that is full of life, promotes healthy living. Bringing Mother Nature into the healthcare system helps the restorative process in the human body. Attention to detail makes patients more comfortable.
