FOREST BATHING Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. Join Mark in a deeply connected experience of Nature that allows you to decompress from the stresses of life. This is an experience of slowing down, coming to your senses and immersing yourself through a 2-3 hour saunter in some of the most pristine areas of the Berkshires The scientifically-proven benefits of Shinrin-yoku include: ~Boosted immune system functioning, with an increase in the count of the body's Natural Killer (NK) cells. ~Reduced blood pressure ~Reduced stress ~Improved mood ~Increased ability to focus, even in children with ADHD ~Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness ~Increased energy level ~Improved sleep *ADDITIONAL HIKING ADVENTURES Join me for a tailor-made hiking adventure from 2 to 6 hours in some of the loveliest areas and vistas in the Berkshires.
