Forest Bathing Experiences “shinrin- yoku”
What is Forest Therapy?
Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. In Japan it is called “shinrin- yoku,” which translates to “forest bathing.” Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition. Forest Bathing is a fun, relaxing way to shed stress, connect with your soul, and give your body the things it needs to feel happy and healthy!

What happens on a Forest Bathing Walk?
Forest Bathing walks are safe, gentle, guided walks in beautiful natural areas designed to slow your mind and body down so you can begin to open your senses. As your guide helps you expand your senses, he skillfully invites you to connect to the pulse of the living landscape. Once reconnected to nature, the participant begins to take in the therapeutic properties of the forest. The walks typically cover less than a mile and end with a ceremony of sharing tea made from foraged local plants.
