What is Forest Bathing?
Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing" was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.
Shinrin-Yoku is an evidence-based approach to encouraging people to engage with the natural world – particularly trees; and demonstrating through clinical testing and research the physical and immunological benefits of contact with Nature.
This is not exercise, or hiking, or jogging. It is simply being in nature, connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. Shinrin-yoku is like a bridge. By opening our senses, it bridges the gap between us and the natural world.
The scientifically-proven benefits of Shinrin-yoku include:
· Boosted immune system functioning, with an increase in the count of the body's Natural Killer (NK) cells.
· Reduced blood pressure
· Reduced stress
· Improved mood
· Increased ability to focus, even in children with ADHD
· Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
· Increased energy level
· Improved sleep
