What is Forest Bathing?
“Forest bathing, also known as Shinrin Yoku, is a practice where participants bathe themselves in the forest atmosphere. There is no water involved in this practice and the bathing refers to immersing oneself in the phytoncides, a group of chemicals which plants use to communicate with each other. Scientists are finding that our bodies respond to these chemical signals in ways which are beneficial for us. Practicing forest bathing has been shown to increase immune response, and decrease stress hormones in the body.”

Missie Wikler is a Local Certified Forest Therapy Guide who has been guiding the local Bend community through outdoor wellness practices for over 3 years.
