Forest Therapy is an evidence-based transformative wellbeing technique that connects people to natural environments through gentle sensory-based 'invitations' (mindfulness experiences). Or put simply - bonding to nature for health benefits.
Modelled on the Japanese wellness practice of Shinrin-Yoku.
A preventative medicine with health benefits that are proven to last for several days, and much longer if practised regularly:
The president of the Japanese Society of Forest Medicine, Dr Qing Li, on Forest Bathing:
"We are part of the natural world. By opening our senses, Shinrin-Yoku bridges the gap between us and the natural world. We can then experience the miracle of life and connect to something larger than ourselves. Nature takes our breath away and breathes new life into us.”
The above is taken from Dr Qing Li's book, "Into the Forest; how trees can help you find HEALTH and HAPPINESS", which is a fantastic read if you want to learn more.

"You helped us so much - V went to see you know who and made the vital work call, both things she has been putting off for weeks! I have also had a v good night’s sleep! Must be six months since that has happened with no night sweats.
We will be in touch for the next episode soon!”.ES, Basingstoke
