It is a mindful and relaxing experience, immersion of all the senses in the atmosphere of a forest. Forest Bathing or shinrin-yoku is a preventive medicine technique that comes from Japan and has been proven to have many health benefits, like lowering cortisol levels, boosting the immune system and improving mood and mental well-being.

The session ends with a herbal tea ceremony to intensify the calming effect of nature on the nervous system.
