Forest bathing in the park Bad Hall

Get in touch with the forest! Under the motto "Health can be breathed in", the forest bath therapy, accompanied by our coaches, will make you experience a conscious stay in the forest. By inhaling the essential oils that the trees release into the air, forest bathing works like an aromatherapy. The interaction between man and nature causes a multitude of positive effects.

Positive effects of forest bathing:

  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Degradation of stress hormone
  • Improvement of sleep quality
  • Relief from depression and anxiety
  • Strengthening resistance
  • Lowering blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  • Strengthening the nervous system

But how does the phenomenon of "forest bathing" work exactly?

Trees release active substances, so-called phytoncides, into the ambient air. These enrich the blood with oxygen and work against harmful bacteria. With the breathing air they enter the body, where they unfold their effect. The fresh forest air can calm the nerves and strengthen the immune system. It has been proven that people who spend time in the forest lower their blood pressure and stress hormones are reduced. The essential oils found in the forest air and the increased moisture also strengthen the respiratory tract.

Japanese Forest Bathing

The roots of the forest bath, the so-called Shinrin Yoku, lie in Japan. The term was used for the first time in 1982. It is a nature-related practice that is designed to reduce stress and increase well-being. In Japan, forest bathing has become a recognized "stress management method" and is promoted by the Japanese health care system.
