Introduction to Shinrin – Yoku Forest Bathing Walks


‘Shinrin-Yoku is like a bridge. By opening our senses, it bridges the gap between us and the natural world’, Dr Qing Li ‘Shinrin Yoku. The Art and Science of Forest Bathing’ (2018).

Shinrin Yoku, translated as ‘bathing in the forest atmosphere’, is a gentle guided meditative walk with the opportunity to simply be in nature and connect with your senses. A forest bathe will help you slow down and bring you to the present moment, relax and help you unwind. Allowing yourself to become immersed in nature, by walking in a forest, has multiple health benefits.

Shinrin Yoku, began in 1982 in Japan, and is now standard practice there with 62 designated ‘Healing Forests’ nationwide. Through a wealth of data collected since the outset it has now been scientifically proven that wherever in the world there are trees, people are happier and healthier.

Evidence has shown that a Shinrin Yoku walk can:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Reduce anxiety, anger and improve your mood
  • Improve concentration and memory
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Improve energy
  • Lower blood sugar levels
  • Make you feel happier
  • Improve cardiovascular and metabolic health
