Also known as "Shinrin-Yoku"

Forest Therapy, also known as “Shinrin-Yoku,” refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness.  The practice follows the general principle that it is beneficial to spend time bathing in the atmosphere of the forest. The Japanese words translate into English as “Forest Bathing.”

Your Guide: Jesse Remer, doula, childbirth educator, health advocate and Forest Therapy Guide in training. Jesse grew up in the deep forests of Northern California and Oregon and found her own healing through postpartum depression and significant life changes under the guidance of Trees she considers to be friends. Her doula practice and retreat land Mother Tree, has integrated nature therapy practices for years (Nurture Your Mother Nature in Birth and Beyond) to assist birthing families to access the relaxation techniques and wellness generated by time in nature. She now supports groups from all “walks” of life to receive the benefit of these healthful principles.
