Shinrin yoku - Forest bathing

Shinrin yoku - Forest bathing

Just when we need it the most, nature is there. Join us for a forest bath at Djurgården. By making contact with the forest, we become calmer, have a stronger immune system and are filled with positive sensory experiences. Forest bath, Shinrin yoku, is a method that aims to become calmer, happier and healthier with the help of nature. Research shows that the body reacts with lowered blood pressure, calmer breathing, improved immune system, increased feeling of well-being, cortisol levels (stress hormones) decrease and we get an increased feeling of well-being. Shinrin yoku is a scientifically proven method that was developed in Japan in the early 80's to counteract stress and today it is used all over the world. Take the opportunity to slow down, be in the forest with open minds and let Forest Medicine really do benefit. Lisen is a certified Nature and Forest Therapy guide trained at ANFT (Association of Nature and forest therapy).

Det var mycket härliga timmar i skogen. Väldigt avslappnande och det öppnade upp nya dimensioner med hjälp av Lisens guidning. Bra genomtänkta övningar som går att använda på egen hand framöver. Kan varmt rekommendera ett skogsbad med Lisen!

Härligt att testa Shinrin Yoku med hjälp av en utbildat guide. Lisen bjöd in till olika härliga övningar för att använda alla våra sinnen. Stanna upp, vara närvarande och bara titta, känna och lyssna. En välbehag av harmoni, avslappning och balans som resultat i kroppen. Jag kan varmt rekkommendera detta till alla och inte minst till oss hälsomedvetna. Det finns mycket forskning bakom metoden idag för dess välgörande hälsoeffekter och vi behöver stanna upp mer än någonsin och reparera våra kroppar och ge den en extra boost av immunitet.
