Connect with nature for your health and well-being

Forest Therapy is a research-based practice for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. In Germany, where it originated, it is known as "Waldtherapie", in Japan it is called "Shinrin-yoku" (森林浴) or "Shinrin-ryōhō (森林療法)", in Korea it is referred to as "Sanlimyok (산림욕)" and in China people call it "Sēnlín liáofǎ (森林療法)".

Forest Therapy is a medically proven and internationally recognized therapeutic approach with a wealth of health benefits. These include boosted immune system, reduced blood pressure, reduced stress, improved mood, increased creativity and ability to focus, accelerated recovery from surgery or illness, increased vitality and energy levels as well as improved sleep.

You can find more information about the science and research behind Forest Therapy in the International Handbook of Forest Therapy released in 2019.

Qigong at Wangaratta
Qigong is a traditional mind-body practice from China that can be practiced by anyone, young, old, active or sedentary. The aim of this ancient practice is to increase and manage "qi", the life energy, by bringing the mind and body into alignment. We use Qigong to complement Forest Therapy sessions. We found that the simple, gymnastics-like movements help our participants to relax and focus their senses, mind and body even more. icon more...
