Forest bath, or shinrin yoku, is a method developed in Japan during the mid-1980’s where the effects of the large urbanisation led to stress and the doctors saw an increase in stress related diseases. A group of researchers started researching on the effects of nature in the human brain and body and came up with some astonishing results. The cause of ill health was found to be “lack of nature”. They developed a method where people walked with a guide in surroundings of natural beauty and open senses in what the nature offers.

During a forest bath, you walk into the forest with a guide who invites to different practices which are beneficial to the health and gives a great sense of well-being. With calm comes great empathy, more creativity and a better ability to cooperate.

Dress according to weather as the activity is outdoors.
