Shinrin-Yoku: The Japanese Art of Forest Bathing
Forest bathing, also known as shinrin-yoku, is the Japanese practice of connecting deeply with nature. It is a practice that involves all the senses and has extraordinary effects on health and happiness. The latest health and wellness trend, it has been touted as the new yoga by international media outlets. In Shinrin Yoku, nature meets modern science in a lushly illustrated book about the healing power of trees. Yoshifumi Miyazaki explains the science behind forest bathing and explores the many health benefits, including reduced stress, lower blood pressure, improved mood, and increased focus and energy. This useful guide also teaches the reader how to bring the benefits of the forest into the home through the use of essential oils, cypress baths, flower therapy, and more.
