What is forest therapy?
Research has shown that forest therapy provides boosts in immunity, reduction in stress and blood pressure, and improved cognitive functioning. Inspired by the Japanese practice of "Shinrin-yoku," or "forest bathing," forest therapy has expanded globally through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs. As an evidence based integrative wellness practice benefiting people and nature, forest therapy offers participants an opportunity to slow down and become connected to themselves, others, and the more than human world through a guided, sensory walk.
