The mere thought of going to the doctor is enough to cause anxiety. Being inside a doctor’s office carries the threat of unavoidable discomfort, disrobing, awkward conversations, and pain. A stressed outpatient can complicate the delivery of quality medical care. Therefore, eliminating as much of this anxiety as possible should be a goal of every medical office.
What’s more, there are way too many medical facilities that either don’t have art, or just have something bland that doesn’t engage, excite, or support. At IPaintMyMind, we love working with clients like these, because our access to over 1,000 pieces of art becomes an incredible resource to draw from to make each space come to life in a unique way.
That said, there is plenty of data to back up the thought that pleasant spaces facilitate recovery. Studies found that looking at nature and landscape art significantly reduced patients’ anxiety and even increased their tolerance for pain. Such remedies shorten the length of hospital stays, increase the effectiveness of medications, and even cut medical costs.
