Shinrin – yoku you ask?

Shinrin – yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing”.

It was developed in Japan during the 1980’s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.

Researchers have established a robust body of scientific literature on the health benefits of spending time in a living forest.

The idea is simple: if a person simply visits a natural area there are calming, rejuvenating and restorative benefits to be achieved.

It’s very simple

Abe’s Trail Trek = Shinrin – yoku
