The Healing Benefits of Nature Imagery in Healthcare Facilities

By Kurt Johnson Photography • May 16, 2019

Is it time for a refresh?

With more and more studies revealing the positive impacts of using nature imagery in hospitality and healthcare environments, it might be time for you to look around at your own space and see if it’s in need of a refresh.

In a recent article on NBC News, Leslie Faerstein, executive director of Arts & Health Alliance, described how the right kind of artwork can have “a strong, positive physiological effect on the brain.”

In addition, a 2011 University of London study found that blood flow increased 10 percent to the “joy response” part of the brain when subjects saw a beautiful painting — just like when you look at a loved one.  And who couldn’t use more joy in their life?
