What does it consist of?

Are you an urbanite and need to disconnect? Do you know what a forest bath or Shinrin-Yoku is? this activity comes from a Japanese technique of reconnecting with both nature and ourselves.

The main objective is to improve your health, well-being and happiness. Would you like to try it? The idea is that your body and mind connect in symbiosis with nature to achieve a level of relaxation and tranquility that makes you forget your daily problems, thus achieving a sensory and emotional journey that will last over time. Will you let us get closer to your emotions?

There are several scientific studies that demonstrate the benefits of forest baths, and it is that to be in contact with the trees lowers blood pressure, strengthens the immune system and relieves chronic pain, in addition to lowering anxiety levels, symptoms associated with depression and fatigue, and promotes the reconciliation of sleep.

Most of us have not learned the art of being still and silent in nature. Through different suggestions or exercises proposed by the forest baths, we activate our 5 senses to obtain a maximum level of relaxation. When you let the forest take its place within you (above your thoughts), it immediately stimulates the body’s natural ability to generate health and wellness. There is nothing to accomplish, just let the moment be what it is.

The forest bath always ends with a surprise.
