Nature is a true ‘neurological’ nourishment for modern man.

E. O. Wilson, biologist

Hippocrates had already emphasised the beneficial and therapeutic powers of Nature and green spaces. But it is since the early 1980s that researchers around the world have become scientifically interested in the benefits of exposure to natural scenery, demonstrating how it is a real opportunity for the recovery of cognitive resources, the restoration of optimal levels of physiological activation, and the regulation of emotions.

Studies on the benefits of viewing natural images.

Theories that can explain the positive effects of Nature on human functioning are two: the Stress Recovery Theory (SRT) and the Attention Restoration Theory (ART).

Stress Recovery Theory

The Stress Recovery Theory was formulated by Roger Ulrich in 1983 (Chalmers University). This, in brief, states that Nature, real or reproduced, promotes psychophysical well-being by activating responses at emotional, cognitive and physiological levels, up to and including the reduction of blood pressure, muscle tension and skin conductivity, allowing recovery from psychophysiological stress situations and a significant reduction in pain perception.


Attention Restoration Theory

According to the Attention Restoration Theory proposed by psychologists Stephen and Rachel Kaplan (1989), later endorsed by a great deal of research, Nature exerts a function capable of regenerating the direct attention potential of human beings. This has shown that environments characterised by a high presence of natural elements allow brain circuits to refresh, favouring the regeneration of cognitive and intuitive resources.

The force of nature.
A balance of cycles and frequencies.

The Alamar videos enhance the natural benefits by supplementing them with specific sequences.


The Alamar method has different characteristics than the simple viewing of natural scenarios.

Experience Nature videos are made to capture and propose the regenerative aspects of Nature, while others are made to describe places, or natural phenomena, with informative purposes. Documentaries require a cognitive effort that is particularly tiring for those with attention deficit. At the same time, fixed natural panoramas, such as streams or waves of the sea that flow the same way for several minutes, are static and after a short time no longer capture the attention.

The Alamar sequences, on the other hand, are a fusion of stillness and movement, as they allow a contemplative view of the natural scenery that is always renewed and equally always coherent and harmonious. The images transform, dissolving one into the other, without activating direct attention and therefore allow a deep and regenerating immersion in Nature. This was demonstrated by an experiment comparing the most beautiful landscape films on the web (BBC and others) with Alamar Life sequences.

Finally, the vibrational frequencies proposed by the Experience Nature themes convey precise information that acts at various levels of being, allowing for a highly targeted non-pharmacological therapy. The Alamar videos are an effective tool to benefit from Nature and all its regenerative aspects in enclosed spaces.

“I find it beautiful that when I look away and then watch television, there is another image, new and beautiful, a flower whose scent I seem to smell. And I am always amazed by this: it is always a surprise! Thank you so much for that”. Mrs. A., resident at LTC Giovanelli, Tesero (TN) Italy.. Read the article


“Emilia sees the films with an impressive hunger for beauty, she is completely dazzled, there is nothing around her during the forty-minute session. It is a very valuable tool for my grandparents, offering workshops, storytelling moments, to celebrate the changes of seasons, but also as a real non-pharmacological therapy”. Valentina Pirola, occupational therapist Santa Teresa care home, Livraga (LO) Italy. Read the article


“We had two residents who no longer wanted to eat, they would say ‘I don’t want to live anymore, so I won’t eat’. We played the fruit DVD rather than the garden DVD and eventually they started to eat on their own, autonomously. … Romeo had not spoken for two years; he no longer expressed any emotion. We accompanied him to the sessions anyway because he liked to watch the videos. One day I projected the sea video and all of a sudden, we could hear him saying “Ah, the sea!”. Samanta Noldin, dementia social educator LTC Santa Maria, Cles (TN) Italy.

“But I never thought I would do that trip again, never imagined it!”. She relived the honeymoon she had taken with her husband and that is why she was so moved, because for her that moment was beautiful. … These testimonies make you understand what they experience when we use an instrument that creates therapeutic beauty. Cristina Falomi, dementia social educator Giglio Blu care home, Perugia (BG) Italy.

“Reliving emotions. Whatever they are, they make our residents feel alive. All we can do is stand beside them and listen to the symphony of their hearts and lives. … We cannot bring them to the mountain, but we can bring the mountain to the care facility and make them feel at home again. This is the great power we have; we give them their life back. … It is really a therapeutic means; it is pure therapy for the soul and the heart. Since we can experience it, it can give us so many unique experiences with the people we care for’Anna Daccordo, psychotherapist LTC Santa Maria, Cles (TN) Italy.

“With the experience of nature videos, we have enjoyed not only memories, but also emotions. Emotions remain until our last breath. … Experiencing these moments with them also arouses emotions in us as operators, which we can take home as emotional baggage that we can retrieve in difficult moments of our work”. Angela Eccher, Dedico Project Manager, LTC C. Vannetti, Rovereto (TN) Italy.

“Within three minutes no more, A. slowly stops crying, his face relaxes, his mood completely changes from distressed to carefree.

“Often moments of sharing on reminiscences, tales of their experiences or memories open up, many even with emotion and sighs manage to make us understand the inner depth that these videos allow us to reach; from there I very often engage with cognitive stimulation and historical-geographical retrieval. They have become so in tune with the experience that it now becomes almost spontaneous for them to actively and enthusiastically respond in listening and synergy with the activity.. Enrica Pontin, dementia social educator LTC Villa Serena, Solagna (VI) Italy. Read the article


“The methodology of storytelling combined with the stimulation of nature videos arouses, activates, transmits emotions. The conversational dimension is intensified in the group. The remembrance dimension is activated from the natural place but only transits from there to the connected and personal sensations and EMOTIONS”.

“Right from the start, we noticed how much our elderly enjoyed these living images. Everyone was generous in sharing memories and emotions, making personal contributions in the creation of the final narrative. The administration of the NPT-ES allowed us to see the positive effect of this intervention on the participants’ well-being also from a more objective point of view. … Re-reading the stories realised makes us realise the richness of this proposal, which does not end in the time of the actual narration, but continues on the written page. We are collecting them with the idea of valorising and highlighting, preserving them with care”. Paola Buelli, dementia social educator LTC Casa Serena, Brembate Sopra (BG) Italy. Read the article


“There are beautiful moments about remembering, about their being, and that’s why we had a session on the sea, bringing the basin with the sand, water, shells… It was very, very emotional because one of our residents, who speaks very little and has really big difficulties, told us how he met his wife, right at the sea, he even started crying and when we told his daughter about it, she too got very emotional because it was a memory she had as a child, but she had forgotten it and now she has it alive again”.

“The interesting observation – and one that in my opinion would be worth investigating with a more detailed study – is that the videos introduced an important cognitive and attentional stimulus after a moment of relaxation, while maintaining calm and tranquillity within the session”.

“Many goals were achieved: one lady went from a condition of social isolation and apathy to rediscovering her autonomy, creating a weekly routine linked to the activity, increasing her self-esteem and improving manual dexterity over the months. … “.

“The use of Alamar at our Residence has significantly helped Guest and Caregiver experience hygienic care as a time of well-being and relaxation. … Bath time thus became an occasion to remember, increasing trust and compliance with the Caregiver.
