Since the times of ancient Rome, water fountains have been used to symbolize wealth and prosperity. For thousands of years, Chinese practitioners of feng shui have noted both the spiritual and health benefits of having water flow in and around the home or place of business. Water fountains have become the central meeting places in towns and cities alike and are some of the most memorable landmarks.

Science has caught up to ancient traditions in recognizing that even the sound of running water can produce calming effects and stimulate well-being. With indoor water fountains you have a method for raising the humidity inside to eliminate dry air. On the other hand, outdoor water fountains have become artistic focuses for cities and gardens. Both indoor and outdoor water fountains combine attractive outward appearances and genuine health improvements.

Of course, you would like to find out how water fountains can be therapeutic. You should take the time to examine this question carefully. If you are serious about adding water fountains to the inside of your home or property take a few minutes to go over the following material.

As mentioned before, indoor water fountains work like natural air purifiers and humidifiers. The fountain purifies the air because it is a moving source of water. As the water flows through the fountain it generates negative ions that escape out into the air. Once the negative ions touch dust particles and smoke they bond with the elements, causing them to drop to the ground.

As scientists have spent time investigating negative ions, they have uncovered effects on the brain chemistry that generate a sense of peace and increase alertness. These are effects of water fountains that were already understood by those who practiced feng shui. Thousands of years before scientists made the connection, users of feng shui were benefiting from the natural health effects of running water.

Scientists have also determined that the sound produced by running water has a relaxing effect on the hearer. When you have indoor water fountains flowing inside your home, you will immediately notice a difference in the way you feel. CDs and tapes capitalize on this relationship between the sound of flowing water and that sense of peace.

One of the notable benefits of outdoor fountains, like those for gardens, is that it provide water for animals like birds. Of course these types of water fountains all offer aesthetic value. Artfully designed water fountains can provide an attractive focus for the home garden. Like indoor water fountains, the outdoor water fountains will produce energizing negative ions so you come away feeling rejuvenated.

As you can see, water fountains come with many therapeutic and health benefits. They also can beautify the home garden or interior design. If you do not already have water fountains, it might be worth it to consider purchasing one for the home or garden. With water fountains, you have a safe and natural method for improving mental well-being and physical health.

A fountain, as an architectural element of an urban or domestic space, is a hydraulic device composed of pipes, taps or water fountains, and one or more pylons, piles or ponds. It can have utilitarian, environmental or decorative use.

They are habitual in patios, gardens, squares, or in singular places of the city, embellishing them and highlighting their importance.

Since most of you are dealing with different budgets and spaces to place the fountain, here is some info on the various types of water fountains available to give you a better idea of what is the better choice for you and your home.

The smallest in size of the indoor water fountains are the tabletop water fountains. They have numerous benefits over bigger and bulkier fountains. For example, they can be easily transported to any room in your home without much of a hassle. Also, they make much less noise than bigger fountains contributing to a more relaxing atmosphere.

Wall mounted water fountains are another interesting option that homeowners have. These fountains are hung upon a wall and run as all other fountains do. What’s great about wall water fountains is the fact that they waste little space. However, they can’t be moved around as easily as other types of fountains can.

Outdoor water fountains can have a major aesthetic impact when combined with a beautiful landscape. It’s quite difficult to imagine anything more relaxing than retreating to your backyard while listening to the calming sound of water tricking down a surface. Another benefit is that whenever you may be entertaining guests the fountain can act as a great conversation piece.

Water fountains can make a great addition to any home that the whole famy, including your pets, will enjoy!
