Shinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980’s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. A robust body of scientific literature now exists on the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a living forest. Inspired by the Japanese practice and the emerging worldwide trend toward nature-based wellness practices, Osmosis is offering a one-day spa retreat featuring Forest Bathing. Learn more about it HERE.
What to expect:
Leisurely walks on gentle paths under the forest canopy with guided activities and meditations to help you open your senses, hone your intuition, and experience the forest as you never have before.
All day spa retreat includes a morning of forest bathing, an organic box lunch, cedar enzyme foot-bath, hammock sound therapy session and a revitalizing 75-minute massage or facial.
