What is Forest Bathing? We have consulted with Forest Bathing expert Justin Legge to answer that question for you. Justin has trained with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, and is the only Certified Forest Therapy Guide in Humboldt County.
Justin describes Forest Bathing as 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. Compared to a traditional nature walk or forest program, this is not to learn, but to just enjoy and be.
Southern Humboldt is the perfect spot to try out Forest Bathing for the first time or to continue on your journey. We have plenty of beautiful areas that are just waiting to be enjoyed.
