“These films quiet my mind, relax my body, and allow me to easily flow into meditation or simply release any negativity or resistance from my being,” wrote one Moving Art viewer, explaining how virtual nature therapy changed their lives.
“I have a 3-year-old autistic boy with serious sleep issues, wrote another viewer, sharing an intensely personal story about playing the Moving Art series as her son falls asleep. “He nearly instantly mellows out and can fall asleep. He’s absolutely mesmerized by the time-lapse flowers opening and closing.”
What is visual healing?
Louie Schwartzberg has received thousands of heartfelt and personal messages from people around the globe, just like these. They all attest to the power and promise of visual healing.
Visual Healing by Moving Art is a virtual immersive program that brings a sense of natural wonder, healing serenity, restoration, and imagination to any environment.
Visual Healing seamlessly integrates with our modern world and everyday habits, from residential properties to retail venues, hospitals, spas, and more. It brings nature and technology together to deliver positive physical, emotional and psychological benefits.
Modern humans suffer from a nature deficit, many of us isolated by lives far from the natural surroundings that can soothe and heal us.
Exposure to virtual nature and visual therapy techniques can improve the otherwise isolating and painful experience of bone marrow donors. It can also decrease fear, anxiety, stress, perception of pain, and restless behaviors in ER waiting rooms.
In addition, it encourages psychological stability, reduced stress, normalizes heart rate and blood pressure, improves self-control and alleviates criminal behaviors
We have merely touched the surface of what is possible. Moving Art engages partners who share our desire to demonstrate the scientific and medical benefits of visual healing.
Where Can You Find Virtual Nature Therapy?
First of all, the Visual Healing program brings a body of work collected from over 40 years. Our work brings a sense of natural wonder, healing serenity, restoration and well-being to health and wellness institutions and organizations.
The program has already been activated at the Jacobs Medical Center at UC San Diego Health and the Center for Brain Health at The University of Texas at Dallas.
In San Diego, you can find Visual Healing in all 249 rooms.
Patients are provided a tablet by their bed where they are given the power to choose where in the world they want to be healed. Choices include the desert, ocean, flowers, or forest. Already, this location collects data to see how visual healing reduces heart and respiration rate, pain killers, and improves sleep.
“Visual Healing puts people in a peaceful and open mindset, which is an essential first step to the work of building cognitive reserve, resilience, and performance,” said Sandra Bond Chapman, founder of the Center for Brain Health.
“The magic of Louie’s Moving Art is that it mitigates fear and ignites a sense of calm and hope by embracing the immense beauty constantly unfolding around us.”
“Just yesterday I was at the very depth of the illness I must fight daily, depression,” wrote one more viewer, summarizing how visual healing can change your perspective. “I found your film and I smiled, a lot. Before watching this program I wasn’t sure how the night was going to end for me, but by the time this movie had ended I was thanking god I was still alive,” they wrote.
