Wellness Wednesdays: Forest Bathing for Stress Management

Wellness Wednesdays is a series of Forest Bathing Walks Held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. Each walk is a different experienced and all are designed to reset and regulate your nervous system for mental, emotional and physical health. Immerse yourself in the glorious nature of this ancient woodland and leave refreshed, rejuvenated, focused and calm.

What is Forest Bathing?

Forest Bathing, also known as shinrin-yoku, is a wellbeing practice that emerged from Japan. These gentle sensory-immersive walks guided by a Certified Forest Bathing Guide invite participants to move gently and consciously through a series of nature-immersive moments. These moments support a deep connection to nature and enhance physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, including:

  • Lowers heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol levels.
  • Reduces stress, anxiety and rumination (repetitive negative thoughts)
  • Reduces inflammation and physical pain
  • Restores attention, focus and concentration
  • Elevates mood
  • Strengthens immunity

What People are Saying About Forest Bathing with Gina:

"I was delighted to discover the opportunity to experience Forest Bathing so close to my home, and Gina is a wonderful guide. After attending one of her group sessions I was keen to make the two hours a regular fixture, and now enjoy 1:1 walks once a month." - Julie Hurst

"I obsessively focus on the future all of the time. On ticket sales. On family life. On where I will be this time next year. Yesterday in the rain was the first time I'd felt truly in the moment for a long time. It was literal breath of fresh air. And one I never realised I needed so much!" - Johnny Marriott, PETNEEDS

"The day transformed and deepened my experience, and connection with trees and plants, to great advantage in my everyday life." - Daisy Anna Lees

"What an amazing experience! The woods are beautiful and Gina was an excellent guide. I lost track of time and left with an amazing sense of serenity and calm. I would highly recommend this experience." - Emma

"Gina made a calm and safe environment which made me look at nature in a way I hadn't before. It allowed my mind to release stress that had build up. I 100% recommend this!" - Justin
