Jefferson University Hospitals

Guided Virtual Nature Walk

A gentle immersion in the infinite offerings of the natural world.

Forest Therapy, also known as “Shinrin-Yoku,” refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, happiness, and a sense of awe. The Japanese words translate into English as “Forest Bathing,” and refers to bathing in the beneficial compounds which trees emit, such as oxygen and phytoncides.

If you don't have a forest at your disposal, don't worry! You can join from any location that is safe and comfortable for you – whether it's your backyard, balcony, stoop, inside with houseplants, or a quiet local trail.
