Our Practice


The Forest Bathing Club offers guided exeperiences within the practice of Nature & Forest Therapy



Forest Bathing vs Nature & Forest Therapy


Forest Bathing is a practice from Japan established in the 1980's called shinrin-yoku, which directly translates to forest-bath. It is to bathe in the phytoncides (wood essential oils) of the forest for health and wellbeing.

  • Forest Bathing is about the gifts we receive from Nature.


Nature & Forest Therapy grew from the teachings of shinrin-yoku, and is an extension of it. However, this practice is slightly different: it is a relational practice of embodiement. It is focuses on our reciprocal relationship with the more-than-human world. 

  • Nature & Forest Therapy is not only about what we receive from Nature, but also how we might give back to Nature - reciprocity.
