There’s a revolutionary trend in green design that considers plants and trees as sources of energies.
People can benefit from the energetic properties of the green, relax, regenerate and positively feed their health.
This approach can be used as well for public parks and areas and it would change the impact of green zones on people.
Herbs and plants have always been famous throughout history for their healing powers but within the last few decades experts have been reconsidering as well the role of parks and green areas.
This means that the simple observation and immersion in a park or garden can positively influence our health.
Since then on, more and more hospitals and recovering centres have been including ad hoc parks in their structures to help patients to rapidly heal.
The energetic properties of plants and trees come from the electromagnetic fields they send which are on the same frequencies of humans’ ones. This means that human cells and biologic systems are sensitive to the same electromagnetic frequencies as trees’ ones are.
Research has found a large variety of trees that in this sense are particularly good for our health, such as: Maple, Holly, Box-tree, Cedar, Beech, Horse Chestnut, Magnolia, Pomegranate tree, Palm, Pine and Willow. Just to name some of them.
No only. A healing garden can be designed in many forms but always features interaction with nature.
Plants and trees have inspirational colours and peaceful tones that help to relax, recover and regenerate. All the five sense are actually involved: the relaxing sound of water, the scent of perfumed flowers, the crispy leaves in autumn or the soft grass to walk on.
Green is a great cure to many illnesses and the development of healing gardens has just begun right now, many improvements will surely be made soon.
Therapeutic landscape design is the current most important green revolution.
