The Health Benefits of Indoor Plants

Immerse yourself into good health by using indoor plants!

Why we have indoor plants in our allied health clinic. 


If you step inside our allied health clinic, Valued Health Osteopathy in Bentleigh East, it would be hard to miss all of our indoor plants. There is a key reason for this. The benefits of having greenery have been very well documented over the years- ranging from removing air pollutants, carbon sequestration, improving air quality, improvements in productivity and creativity, and promoting good health and well-being.1


Benefits of Indoor Plants, Immerse yourself into good health, Indoor plants, Plants, Wellness, Osteopath in Bentleigh East near Ormond, McKinnion, Moorabbin, Caulfield, Carnegie, Brighton, Cheltenham, Oakleigh, Oakleigh South, Chadstone, Beaumaris, Dingley, Clayton, Clarinda, HamptonSo how many indoor plants are needed to make an impact?

A recent study in Australia discovered the ideal number of plants needed to make an impact on wellness. It has been revealed according to research that one medium sized plant (of up to 50cm) placed in a medium sized room (about 4 x 5ms) can improve the air quality by as much as 25% by “reducing the volatile organic compounds present”.1


Why is it important to have indoor plants?

Plants can be effective at filtering out small particles by absorbing or collecting the particles.2 Research studies have also suggested that “indoor plants can be effective in reducing airborne chemicals and particles in indoor spaces by as much as 75-90%, depending on the pollutant and the plant”.2 Dominque Hes, the key researcher from the University of Melbourne, states that human beings are less and less among nature and current estimates indicate that we are spending 90% of our time in indoor environments.1 Which means that we have a higher exposure to indoor contaminant compounds.1 Research has also confirmed that indoor plants can “improve air quality by filtering airborne toxins caused by organic chemicals in products like paints and furniture finishes”1 and that having enough plants indoors can improve your wellbeing.2


So, say yes to indoor plants because we certainly like them!


Our ethos at Valued Health Osteopathy in Bentleigh East is to make sure we all Move, Grow and Thrive. We are all for immersing everyone into good health and it seems that just adding a few indoor plants into your living or work space is a great way to start. Have a read of our VISION and MISSION statements to see what we are all about.
