While forest bathing in the spruce forest, on the Salto/Salten and larch meadow, you can train your senses in a health-promoting mountain climate. Forest bathing is one of the many translations of the Japanese word “shinrin-yoku”. It means to experience the forest consciously. Research has shown that being mindful surrounded by trees and greenery reduces stress and lowers blood sugar levels.
It also activates the parasympathetic nervous system, regulates blood pressure, and improves the heart rate variability. In other words: We simply feel good after forest bathing. Bioactive substances, including phytoncides and terpenes emitted by the trees, which also increase the number of our killer cells by up to 40%, help take care of this. These killer cells counteract harmful organisms in our body. The effect lasts up to seven days. Forest bathing is wellness for all your senses.
