Horticultural therapy

Horticultural therapy

Horticultural therapy is a relatively new field of alternative medicine that uses the garden as an essential tool for healing and soothing thoughts. Garden therapy consists in carrying out small gardening works and using the stimuli that lie dormant in plants to stimulate all human senses.

The ancient Hippocrates of Kos noted the first records of the beneficial influence of nature on man. However, the main motivator contributing to the development of garden therapy were world wars, after which soldiers were rehabilitated in hospital gardens. Currently, thanks to the positive influence of nature on the human body, horticulture is an increasingly popular alternative form of occupational therapy.
