At Brooks Healing Center, we are surrounded by luscious greenery and rolling lawns. Though this landscape offers a beautiful backdrop for our facilities, it also benefits the mental health of our patients by offering peaceful, serene areas for them to walk and reflect in.
Nature has been scientifically proven to reduce stress. Positive experiences in nature can improve things in the body like mood, immune, nervous, and endocrine systems. Unpleasant environments and high levels of stress can lead to feelings of anxiety, sadness, or helplessness. Muscle tension can occur, as well as elevated heart rate and blood pressure which puts strain on one’s immune system. A beautiful environment can help curb these negative effects.
