It is so much more. A walk in the woods is something we wholeheartedly recommend; it’s undoubtedly good for you. However, Forest Therapy takes you to a different level of sensory awareness. It uses mindfulness and meditation techniques to allow you to open your senses to the natural world. The experience can be mentally transformative.
