Nature Experience Forestbathing - Nature grounds. Nature gives. Nature heals.
Timeout in our daily life is becoming increasingly rare. However, body, mind and soul need conscious rest periods in order to process the constant input from outside. In everyday life there are often no opportunities to become silent with oneself or to experience silence.
Stress reduction by nature experiences - Shinrin-yoku or "forest bathing" is a method for stress reduction coming from Japan, recognized since the beginning of the 1980's and is prescribed there even by physicians as health precaution. We are talking about an extraordinary stay in the forest with all the senses and a conscious experience of nature. In order to achieve this, various techniques are used for targeted deceleration in and with nature.
The positive effect on the human nervous, hormonal and immune systems has been proven in numerous studies. For example, terpenes and essential oils activate the formation of white blood cells, so that after an extensive walk in the woods about 50 percent more of them can be detected in the blood.
The forests of the Upper Black Forest with their unique flora welcome you in their untouched nature. Experience an oasis of silence without traffic, rush, deadline stress and absorb the forest with all your senses.
Enjoy a time of relaxation, retreat and recharging your batteries under the guidance of our fitness and relaxation coaches.
Where, if not in the Black Forest?
