Forest Therapy or Shinrin-Yoku is a practice that started in Japan during the 1980’s. Scientific research has been done to measure the healing benefits derived from simply being in the forest in a mindful way. It also gives us a chance to enjoy our forests and green spaces more and encourages us to want to take more care of them. Case studies needed, please get in touch if you would like to participate. These sessions are free of charge whilst I am doing my guide certification with The Forest Bathing Institute TFBI
