Lakeland Wellbeing will guide you through a Forest Bathing session, scientifically proven to have many physical and mental health benefits.
Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Bathing is a natural well-being therapy originating from Japan. It has been scientifically proven to have many benefits including boosting the immune system, lowering blood pressure, reducing stress levels and elevating mood and energy levels.
Research shows that just being in nature for just 2 hours per week can have a significant benefit to our health.
With a qualified Forest Bathing guide, you will be led through a series of mindful ‘invitations’ to connect with yourself and nature. We will explore how the forest supports our physical and emotional health, as we engage with the sights, sounds and smells of the forest through mindful walking and movement, breathing and sound meditations; opening our awareness and culminating in a traditional tea ceremony.
