Do you know the feeling? After a stressful week, you take time out at the weekend for a long walk in the forest - and you immediately feel relaxed. The air smells earthy and fresh, the forest floor gives way gently under your feet, old trees line the edge of the path majestically and birds sing their songs in the rustling treetops - and somehow all the tension falls away from you all by itself. And all this during a simple walk in the forest.
The effect of forest bathing is unique. The practice of Shinrin Yoku originated in Japan and is aimed precisely at this relaxing effect of nature: forest bathing - the deep immersion in nature and especially in the forest - is used there as a means of promoting human health and well-being. While forest bathing is still considered a nice wellness trend in Germany and Europe, the method and its effectiveness for the psyche have been researched at universities in Japan and medically tested in extensive studies. Forest therapy is even prescribed by psychologists there.
Together with the trained forest bathing course leader Angela Mertens, you can embark on this very special discovery tour through the forest with all your senses during a 3-day stay at the Waldhotel Tannenhäuschen in selected periods. Recharge your batteries with the power of nature, strengthen your health and immune system and draw on the rich treasure trove of knowledge of the Japanese forest therapy.
