Therapeutic landscapes in holistic medicine

Author(s): Williams, A.
This study looks at the cross-section between humanism (as applied to holistic medicine) and therapeutic landscapes, and analyzes their impact on health and healing. Therapeutic landscapes are by definition, “changing places, settings, situations, locales and milieus that encompass both the physical and psychological environments associated with treatment or healing.”  In simple terms, natural landscapes can play a vital role in the healing of illness.  Health programs centered on these ideals are thought to achieve physical, mental, and spiritual healing.
