Forest Bathing 

What is Shinrin-Yoku

So heres this thing, Someone called me a tree hugging hippy the other day? I smiled and said thank you. 

This therapy has been in the news over the last couple of years and it got my attention. I needed to know more!

I have always loved being out doors with my dogs and walking to discover new places. 

Do you need to escape the ret race or your non stop life, We have a great experience for you. 

Known in Japan as Shinrin-Yoku which translates as "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing" 

This fascinating therapy was developed in Japan during the 1980s. It may sound simple, but forest bathing offers a timeless truth.

 Time spent in a forest and amongst nature reduces stress and promotes a feeling of wellbeing.

There is even a healthy body of research supporting the idea that forest bathing can help alleviate depression, stress and anxiety, lowering levels of the harmful 'stress chemical' cortisol, as well as having a positive effect on everything from blood pressure to your resting pulse.

If you would like to join us on our next Shinrin-Yoku workshop please just get in touch, Weather permitting our new workshop will be July 2020

The tree hugging hippy!
