Forest Therapy incorporates the practice of Forest Bathing while targeting specific mental health and physical health difficulties. Forest Therapy Practitioners work in partnership with the forest to enhance nature connection. Forest Therapy is grounded in the Forest Bathing practice of sensory connection, effortless attention and immersing the senses in the forest atmosphere. In this way, Forest Therapy can act as an adjunct to standard treatment and rehabilitation for specific illnesses. (Forest Therapy Institute 2019)
