Forest Therapy

Forest Therapy sessions are a preventative public health practice, inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (translates as 'immersion in the forest atmosphere') and now available world-wide.

Research shows benefits for minds and bodies. They are 2 to 3 hours in duration, slowly wandering between 1-2 kilometres in small groups.

Your guide offers gentle, immersive practices to engage all of your senses, ignite your curiosity and help you to turn off from the outside world. Sessions are conducted mostly in quietness within beautiful green spaces. Our small group Forest Therapy sessions follow a standardised sequence as based on the International Core Curriculum for Forest Therapy (ICCFT). After sessions, people feel calmer, happier and more relaxed.
