Forest Bathing

TRISKELION

"It is the most well-known sacred Celtic symbol, of very important healing and magical ability. Depicts the balance between body, mind and soul. Symbolizes perpetual learning and eternal evolution of the universe and every being"

Forest Bathing is an old technique that took place in every ancient culture. From decades ago, the Japanese government protects unique forest areas for its citizens to practice Shinrin Yoku, as they call it. It is interesting to see companies themselves sending their directors and managers in groups to perform this practice, considered extremely beneficial for their health and their work performance.

This technique has been put in motion in the west with two clear goals: to protect old forests and respectfully visit them to take advantage of their therapeutic effects.

With Forest Bathing, we visit natural areas of great environmental quality to be in contact with the flying particles of its trees and plants, capable of strengthening our innate immunity for battling all kinds of illnesses. Along with other physiological, psychological and emotional effects, the main benefit is a stronger natural immunity.

These areas are ideal for strengthening our organism, fighting tiredness, stress, mental fatigue, depression and anxiety, irritation, migraines and insomnia.

With forest bathing, we produce a higher stimuli for our parasympathetic nervous system that results in relaxation and the slowing of the sympathetic nervous system.
