The healing benefits of Forest Therapy
logo Sydney Morning Herald

A recent article in the Australian Sydney Morning Herald described and endorsed the effects of Forest Therapy as an effective preventive Public health practice. Quoted next to the internationally revered British actress, Dame Judy Dench, INFTA’s President, Susan V. Joachim, stresses that when “immersing yourself or being showered in nature you consciously choose to slow down and soak it all in. Noticing the sounds, smells, sights, textures and even the taste of the air allows you to slow down, relax and re-energise”. This was underscored, once again, by several dozen participants who took part in the Public guided Forest Therapy walk offered by INFTA in collaboration with its accredited training provider, In My Nature, at the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden in Sydney.
