Research on Nature & Healing

Nature Enhances Patient Experience and Healing
Exposure to Nature releases serotonin, reducing patient stress, boosts staff satisfaction

Based on decades of empirical research, Sereneview® products bring Nature to the hospital setting, with evidence-based designs.

Forty years of research documents the link between viewing Nature photographs and lowering blood pressure, lowering anxiety, reducing the need for pain medication, shorter hospital stays, and fewer complications after surgery. Exposure to a Nature scene affects the autonomic nervous system and enhances the healing process.

Viewing a beautiful Nature scene can increase employee satisfaction and the rate and quality of patient recovery.

Extensive research studies show that viewing Nature plays a key role in healing.
