ART THAT HEALS & REDUCES STRESS

Koral Martin specializes in nature artwork for hospitals, medical centers and other commercial environments. Her fine art photography is of the beautiful world of nature around us. Her fine art nature photography has the wonderful ability to help calm the stress of patients, staff and clients; heal patients faster and helps them require less medicine. She can customize her art to fit your or your business' specific needs!!
 
There are many print options for your healthcare or commercial environment. Photos ordered from the site can be printed on fine art photo paper or canvas.  Special Orders may be  printed or infused (sublimation) on metal,glass;or tile; or also matted, framed or stretched on canvas. Triptychs and quadriptychs as well as murals are available. The Patient Care Boards are a great addition to every room and station combining art with the utilitarian.
 
It’s becoming common knowledge that images of nature (often enlarged fine-art color photographs of nature’s works of art appropriately mounted and hung) in health care facilities are an essential element in the well being of patients and contribute positively to the mental state of both the staff and visitors. The next logical step in this progression is the realization that images of nature can contribute to the mental and physical well being of the general population. If a beautiful image of one of nature’s works of art helps a patient in the hospital by lowering stress levels and blood pressure and speeding the healing process, doesn’t it stand to reason that such images can have positive effects on our lives in environments other than just hospitals and clinics? What about corporate offices, government facilities, schools, retirement communities, rest homes, and of course our own, personal homes? These are all places where the therapeutic effect of beautiful nature photographs would be welcome. It’s exciting to think that fine-art nature photographs can have such a positive affect on our emotional and physical well being that they could help to make everyone’s daily life less stressful and their trips to the doctor less frequent.

Growing up I was fortunate to get to spend a good bit of time during our spring and summer breaks camping in the great outdoors. My parents loved nature and every opportunity we had, we were out enjoying it. We would camp and spend lots of time hiking with some fishing thrown in. I gained a great appreciation and love of nature during these treks. My parents, as they got older, still loved venturing into the outdoors whenever they could. My mom has Alzheimer’s Disease. She was diagnosed around 8 years ago and the MRI led us to believe it was pretty advanced at the time she was diagnosed. That did not slow my parents down. My dad thought it was even more important to make sure she had the chance to be in the beautiful outdoors. Almost weekly they would hit a wonderful state park in Kentucky. They would hike a little, have a great meal, then hike some more or have a nice drive in the area to end the day.  More....
