What is forest bathing and where does it come from? It came to us from Japan as a health and wellness trend and has its origins there in science. In the Far East, "Shinrin Yoku" literally means bathing in the forest air. Scientific studies have investigated the effects of nature on the human body - following this, forest bathing was finally available on prescription in Japan. The origin of forest bathing therefore has a therapeutic approach, because the Japanese have often lived and suffered very much under stress. That sounds familiar, doesn't it? The wonderful thing is that forest bathing counteracts this and has many positive effects on body, mind and soul.
The forest as therapy: Instead of using pharmaceutical products for problems of a health nature, it is often enough to resort to the simple things in life. This is how you really help yourself sustainably. A conscious forest bath in the Black Forest is a very good way to do this. If you let the soothing connection to nature affect your own soul and ask yourself once what a gift the forest is, you will learn to appreciate it.
Everyday ballast disappears as if by itself and you immerse yourself completely in the forest atmosphere. You will notice how beneficial it is to bring your own thought carousel to a standstill. At the same time, you will learn to look at the bigger picture in your own life - after all, you often can't see the forest for the trees...
What can a forest bath do for my body? For some time now, biologists, doctors, psychologists and researchers have been studying this topic and have come to the conclusion, among other things, that a walk in the woods causes the release of adrenaline to decrease, blood pressure and heart rate to drop and thus stress levels to be reduced. According to a study by Professor Gin Li, who works for the Nippon Medical School in Tokyo, a day in the forest has been shown to increase defence cells.
Forest bathing can even prevent burnout, as the oxygen, essential oils and tranquillity are good for our body and mind. In the forest it is easier for us to think clearly and to be grateful for many things that are given to us every day. We experience a deceleration that we cannot experience anywhere else.
