Forest Bathing

Forest Bathing is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in natural environments. Also known as Nature or Eco Therapy, this modality is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (loose translation: forest bathing). Guided Forest Bathing walks offer a sequence of sensory awareness invitations to activate your parasympathetic nervous system, eventually resulting in a state of relaxation, lower stress hormones and an immune system boost for up to a month. 

Who is this for? Everyone! Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, including:

  • Improved cognition, creativity, focus and productivity

  • Feeling recharged, restored energy levels, and better sleep 

  • Increased ability to manage anxiety, burnout, anger, grief, depression, fatigue, blood pressure (low and high), and other chronic health challenges 

  • Gained sense of connection, wonder, and awe

Walks are offered in local parks with easy terrain in mind; at a gentle and slow pace, suitable for all-bodies. Please ask if you have any questions about accessibility.

Each walk is a unique experience. You can expect an opportunity to slow down; physically and mentally. To get curious, to investigate, to feel, to play, and otherwise interact with the here/now of life. To just be yourself, as imperfect and healthy as the trees.


Best for ages 14+, small group walks are $125 per person, for 120 minutes. Private, one-on-one walks can also be arranged.
