Link Between Optimism, Happiness, and Medical Outcomes Underscores the Impact of a Positive Attitude, says Northwest Vein and Aesthetic Center

Share Article

Commenting on a recent article, the Washington State clinic notes that all kinds of patients typically benefit from a positive and supportive atmosphere.

A positive mental attitude appears to have beneficial medical impacts.

It is nearly always possible to lower patients’ stress levels and create a more pleasant environment in order to encourage more positive feelings and, as a result, more positive outcomes.

An April 1 article on the Idaho Statesmen by Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz takes note of studies indicating that patients who report happier and more optimistic states of mind are less prone to complications following a procedure, as well as to heart attacks and other serious health risks. Washington based clinic Northwest Vein & Aesthetic Center notes that the article corresponds with the experiences of many of its patients. The clinic adds that, while genuine happiness and optimism can’t always be easily manufactured, it is nearly always possible to lower patients’ stress levels and create a more pleasant environment in order to encourage more positive feelings and, as a result, more positive outcomes.

Specifically, while many of the procedures performed at Northwest Vein & Aesthetic Center deal with such issues as varicose and spider veins, and require only local anesthetic and light sedation, the clinic also offers Virtual Reality Anxiety Reduction Technology (VR), which places patients in a comforting, fully immersive setting designed to reduce stress and anxiety, which the center points out has been shown to actually reduce any minor physical discomfort that might be related to these procedures. The process has been shown to be especially helpful for individuals who might be worried about the level of discomfort given the relatively low amount of sedation and anesthetic required for many vein procedures.

Beyond that, Northwest Vein & Aesthetic Center notes that it’s always a good idea for medical personnel to do everything possible to instill a relaxed and pleasant attitude in patients. The clinic notes that, with a pleasant clinical atmosphere, appropriate bedside manner, and a gentle and compassionate approach, it’s not difficult to foster the kind of upbeat, positive attitude that appears to have provable medical benefits following all types of procedures.

Northwest Vein & Aesthetic Center offers a range of treatments for vein issues ranging from relatively minor problems like spider veins to such potentially serious matters as deep vein thrombosis. It also offers leading edge aesthetic treatments including CoolSculpting, a fat freezing alternative to traditional liposuction for the removal of stubborn deposits of fat that fail to respond to standard low calorie diet and exercise.

The clinic notes that it’s friendly and professional staff looks forward to helping new patients with a variety of issues. Northwest Vein & Aesthetic Center has two Washington State locations, one center is in Olympia and the other is located in Gig Harbor.
