To go on a forest therapy walk is to practice shinrin-yoku — a Japanese phrase that translates as “forest bathing.” Essentially, forest bathing is a mindful, deep-sensory immersion experience.
On a forest therapy walk you may find that your blood pressure and stress levels decrease while your immune system and cognitive functions increase. Further, your creativity may become heightened and your capacity for problem solving widened. When you return to the ordinary world you may find that you are more productive at home and at work.
There are many reasons to walk in the woods. Let us help you make the most of it.
