'Travel therapy' touted as a way to improve mental health

A new cross-disciplinary paper from Edith Cowan University (ECU) suggests we change the way we look at tourism so that we view it as a way to improve our health, as well as a chance to get away and relax. Dr. Jun Wen led a diverse team of tourism, public health and marketing experts who investigated how tourism could benefit those living with dementia. "Medical experts can recommend dementia treatments such as music therapy, exercise, cognitive stimulation, reminiscence therapy, sensory stimulation and adaptations to a patient's mealtimes and environment. These are all also often found when on holidays."
