DVD images create peaceful visual environment, ease anxiety of patients in doctor's offices, hospitals or hospice care facilities.

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, New Jersey--Life is moving at breakneck speed. Deadlines seem shorter. Stress, tension, and anxiety too often are the rule rather the exception.

A new line of scenic, relaxation videos is now available from HUG Video Productions. Engineered in a DVD format, the videos feature beautiful scenes of nature in a variety of settings, framed in a backdrop of soothing, restful music.

Each video scene is extended and enhanced to allow the viewer to "linger and become absorbed for awhile"... to observe a close-up of the intricacies of a butterfly's wings ... watch deer grazing in a rolling field ... marvel at the colors of spring and summer blossoms ... or meditate on the sights and sounds of gentle surf or a forest stream.

The new HUG Video titles include programs depicting spring, autumn, a day at the zoo, secret courtyards, marine life, beaches, brooks and ponds and a day in the country. Each HUG Video program lasts about an hour.

HUG Videos originally were designed as a calming visual influence--an alternative to the usual magazines--for patients awaiting their doctors in dental and medical reception areas and treatment rooms.

Suitable for viewing on monitors, television screens or computer screens, these same programs are now available to everyone--individuals, business and health- care professionals who seek to create and experience a calming visual environment.

Dentists, doctors, hospital and health facility staff, hospice and convalescent home professionals and caregivers in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, and South America have been reaping the benefits of HUG Videos since 1996.
