Forest Therapy (Shinrin-yoku) Melbourne Gardens
Forest Therapy, or Shinrin-yoku works as a preventative health practice, by immersing your senses in nature. This has the side effect of bolstering your mental and physical health by reducing stress levels, regulating pulse and blood pressure, and elevating your mood. It’s not an uncommon practice in Asia and Europe where it is recognised as a public health practice. It’s gaining global acclaim as an evidence-based, cost-effective and natural remedy – a ‘green prescription’ for a healthier you.
