Unfortunately hospitals don’t place a premium on creating a nourishing environment for patients recovery and healing.

Therefore, it is up to us to create the most nourishing sanctuary possible while in the hospital.

Bring your own favorite and soothing music to listen to, with headphones, so that hospital noise is kept to a minimum.

Guided imagery and meditations with slow and easy breathing will also greatly help with calming and resetting the sympathetic nervous system

Flowers of different varieties, scents and colors will help to create a nourishing effect as well.

Watching movies and programs that elicit laughter have been shown to accelerate healing and recovery .

A Qigong practice which utilizes the calming and healing power of a ‘simple light touch with a nourishing intention’ is a technique I have used with various clients while in recovery at the hospital, to balance the autonomic nervous system.
