Abstract

A healing garden or health garden is a concept which has been commonly accepted (Mikaeili Tabrizi, 2004) but we should know what the meaning of health and healing in the phrase “Healing Garden” constitutes. If we look it up in the Webster dictionary, we notice that health means “to remove all diseases, to heal, to recover and to repair”. It also means an action or a process in which everything is going to be healed. According to the WHO definition (1948), “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” According to Oxford dictionary, healing has four meanings which include: 1-Cause (a wound, injury, or person) to become sound or healthy again; 2- Become sound or healthy again; 3- Alleviate (a person’s distress or anguish) 4- Correct or put right (an undesirable situation). Use of the word healing in the phrase “Healing Garden” contains all the above meanings in a particular context. The main role of these gardens is to provide a healthy environment and to give peace to the users of that environment. According to Eckerling’s interpretation, a healing garden is a garden whose design aims to strengthen people and to help humans to have better feelings about their surrounding environment (Eckerling, 1996).
