Art For Healthcare: Water

When choosing art for a healthcare setting, it’s best to choose imagery that aligns with Evidence-Based Art research.  One of the elements known to improve medical outcomes by reducing stress is water.

Studies have shown in particular that images of calm, slowly-moving water can have a significant stress-reducing effect on the viewer.  The research recommends avoiding dangerous-looking rapids or stormy seas, as these can sometimes increase anxiety rather than alleviating it.

I’ve spent several years building up a collection of images specifically intended for use in healthcare settings.  If you visit the Art For Healthcare gallery on my website, you will see streams, lakes, waterfalls and other water featured prominently in many of the images.
