*Nature therapy, forest bathing or Shinrin-Yoku,which means the medicine of simply being in the forest and taking in the forest atmosphere. It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.
I will lead you on a Forest Bathing Walk through the woods connecting and relating to them in a particular way through something called "Invitations". 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
Increased ability to focus, even in children with ADHD
Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
Increased energy level
