Forest Bathing Retreat

Forest Bathing, or Shinrin-Yoku touts growing research that supports the far east tradition and understanding that spending time in the deep woods has profound healing power. Over time, Forest Bathing can produce quantifiable changes in the body and mind. Plus, the added benefit is that it just feels good. The Lodge at Woodloch developed a Forest Bathing Exploration Program four years ago as a way to introduce the theory to guests. In 2015, the team took it a step further by having a cross-functional team of associates certified in Forest Bathing. 
 
The true goal has always been to get healthcare professionals, wellness professionals and guests themselves to discover the benefits of Forest Bathing and include it as part of their overall health and wellness plan.  The idea of creating a retreat for health and wellness professional was developed to plant that seed within the healthcare community.

Research indicates that nature and the forest are true healers. Studies show that there is a marked decrease in stress-related hormones, a decrease in heart rates and lower blood pressure. The theory states that trees and plants produce organic compounds called phytocides to help protect themselves from insects, fungus and disease. These compounds escape into the air and when breathing deeply and moving slowly through the forest…with an open heart and lungs, can offer great benefits to humans as well as plants.
 
Some of the results of the Rx of the forest include:
· Reduced blood pressure
· Reduced blood cortisol levels (stress indicator)
· Increases in counts of natural killer cells that combat disease
· Improved perception of vigor
· Reduced stress levels
· And more
