Forest Therapy

Hiking in Forest
As a Spiritual Life Coach, Energy Healer and Certified Forest Therapy Guide, I integrate the healing power of nature into my practice through Forest Therapy to support clients in deepening their own connection and restoring balance on all levels.
Forest Therapy, also known as Forest Bathing is the Japanese art of
"Shinrin Yoku", translated as:
'taking in the forest air with all the senses'.

Backed by rigorous scientific studies beginning in 1984, forest therapy is a gentle, immersive, intentional, and meditative walk through the forest that has been found to reduce stress, boost immune function, as well as increase focus and productivity. The research shows that nature provides a preventative boost to our immunity and is a prescription for many afflictions. It is a place where we find our “rest and relaxation’ state, providing a pathway to dis-ease prevention and healing.

The practice of writing “Green Prescriptions” for patients is increasing as more studies and proven benefits of Forest Therapy are becoming more widely known.
