Forest Bathing Nature Therapy

The idea behind it is simple – spending time in nature has a calming and restorative effect on our minds and bodies.

Immersing yourself in a healthy forest allows you to disconnect from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with the natural world.

Being outdoors can have a tremendously calming and restorative impact on your mind and body, offering you the chance to take a break from the hustle and bustle of your often hectic and stressful everyday life.

Experiencing nature first-hand also helps you to connect with the world around you, allowing you to observe and engage with nature’s beauty, variety and complexity.

Simply spending time outdoors in nature – whether it’s a hike in a forest or a walk along the beach – can lead to an increased sense of wellbeing that you simply can’t get from being indoors.

Some proven benefits of regular practice include:

  • Relaxation and Recovery

  • Improved Attention

  • Increased Happiness

  • Stress Relief


Your ANFT Certified Forest Therapy Guide is trained and experienced to help you connect and interact with nature, providing you with direction, tools and guidance along the way.

The sessions are not hikes or nature tours, but rather slow and meditative walks that encourage participants to engage with their senses and surroundings in a mindful way.

Your Guide’s role is to provide a safe and supportive environment for you to experience the healing power of nature and allow a deeper connection to emerge between you and the natural world.
