Forest Wellness

Breathing in the forest air - a good medicine

Scientific research supports the positive effect on our well-being. The forest not only converts CO2 from the air we breathe into pure oxygen, but it has also been proven that forest greenery has an effect on our physical well-being. Researchers have discovered that forest bathing activates the white blood cells and boosts the immune system to fight against germs. Furthermore, the environment in and around the forest help stress-related illnesses as well as heart and cardiovascular diseases, insomnia and depression.


Everyone knows the feeling: You go into the woods, and stress levels sink immediately. This feeling can also be proven biochemically. The two stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline fall significantly after one day in the forest. Here you can be yourself. Expectations, worries and stress simply diminish, and one becomes more creative, problem solving becomes more manageable and concentration levels reach a high.
