    What is Forest Therapy?

    Forest Therapy (also known as Shinrin Yoku and Forest Bathing) is an effective public health practice, with researched benefits including reduced stress, increased immune function, enhanced creativity and sleep, and improved mental health.

    Being in nature with a Certified Forest Therapy Guide FTG, provides a relaxing and refreshing experience, inviting space for quiet listening, reflection and inquiry through all the senses. You will be guided to move slowly, pause and sit, as nature unfolds around you. As a group, there is also the opportunity to connect and share your experiences with each other. The experience concludes with tea and refreshments.

    The activities follow the standard set by the International Core Curriculum for Forest Therapy, as specified by the International Nature & Forest Therapy INFTA.
