Japanese Forest Medicine:
Strengthen health – promote healing
Forest Medicine, or ‚forest bathing’ from the Japanese 森林浴 – shinrin’yoku, is a traditional Japanese form of therapy, used to strengthen health and promote healing. In many clinics forest therapy is used as a complementary form of therapy to Western ‘school’ medicine. Since 2012, forest medicine has been an individual branch of medical research at Japanese universities.
Numerous studies worldwide prove the health-promoting qualities of a stay in the forest with the right activities. ‚Forest bathing’ – 森林浴 has a long tradition in Japan. But it is anchored in one form or another in almost all cultures of the world.
Forest medicine is ideal for stress reduction, for strengthening the immune system, for clarity and creativity, as well as for more strength and serenity in everyday life.
I worked in a Japanese company in Sapporo, on Hokkaido Island in northern Japan, for two years.
One day my colleague and her parents took me on a trip to the inner part of the island. There, for the first time, I experienced wonderful forest bathing myself and was very impressed by the feeling of wellbeing within a very short time.
In this speech you will learn and experience how you can easily stay strong and calm in the stressful everyday life with Japanese forest medicine and how you can get more nature into your life.
