Forest Bathing derives from Japan and can be roughly defined as: “making contact with and taking in the atmosphere of the forest”. It is a practice that describes a broad group of techniques or treatments to use nature to improve mental and physical health.
Forest Bathing has been documented to reduce stress hormone production, improve feelings of happiness and free up creativity, as well as lower heart rate and blood pressure, boost the immune system and accelerate recovery from illness.
