Forest bathing in Northeim

A conscious walk through the forest reduces your blood pressure and heart rate and naturally lowers stress hormones. Encourage well-being and good health with conscious awareness in nature.

What is forest bathing?

No, we don't have a sauna and no, you can't go swimming anywhere either. "Forest bathing" or shinrin-yoku comes from Japan, where it has been a popular form of therapy for decades.

How forest bathing works

Forest bathing means being very aware of your surroundings with all your senses. As you walk through the woods, you focus on smells, sounds, or colors, like the rustle of the leaves or the scent of the fir branches. This lowers blood pressure, reduces your heart rate and naturally lowers stress hormones.
