Restorative Forest Therapy - An Introduction

  • Wildwood 2929 Crane Road Ladysmith, BC, V9G 1C8 Canada (map)

This Restorative Forest Therapy workshop is an introduction to effective therapy techniques known to decrease physiological and psychological stress by increasing parasympathetic nervous activity. Studies show that people with chronic heart failure, poor immune response, inflammation, type II diabetes, depression and anxiety can benefit from exposure to forested environments.

Participants of this walking Forest Therapy will learn to slow down, use proper body positioning, appropriate cadence, cognitive awareness, effective breathing and a positive mind.

This introduction will give you insights to the beneficial healing abilities of a specific type of natural forest, and open you to how a more extended program of Forest Therapy can benefit you for long term health.
