The juggle is real! Do you experience daily anxiety or stress? You are not alone. Would you like to disconnect from tech and responsibilities, declutter your mind and detox your soul? I guess that at least some of these resonate with you:
There is growing scientific evidence from the UK that proves that just 2 hours of connecting to nature in a Forest Therapy experience boosts immune function, lift the spirits, decrease strain on the heart, and makes you feel more alive! Results from my early sessions corroborate these findings (participants completed the recognised psychological rating Profile of Mood States (POMS) test before and after the walk). So step off the merry-go-round and lose yourself in a slow, engaging, transformative experience.
And the best news? The benefits don't just last for the duration of the experience. Some are proven to last well beyond the end of the session; days and sometimes even weeks afterwards.
These are some of the clinically proven health benefits:
* Specifically attributed to inhalation of the essential oils emitted from trees (mainly conifers and oak in the UK) called Phytoncides (note that this will take you to the scientific report on a separate site).
From a personal perspective, Forest Therapy has fundamentally changed who I am; I cannot un-see what I have seen on my nature connection journey (not that I would want to) and I hope to bring these same fundamental shifts in personality to you. There is so much in nature that can bring you deep joy and a sense of awe, and I feel so grateful to have found this now. Considering yourself part of nature rather than separate to it changes everything.
