Shinrin Yoku

Shinrin-yoku means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. Researchers primarily in Japan and South Korea have established a robust body of scientific literature on the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a living forest. 

 

 

 



When you walk in a wild forest you become calmer, rejuvenated, and there are other restorative benefits.
