Nature Bathing

Experience how nature can heal you! Fort Hill Farms’ NATURE BATHING is based on the ancient outdoor meditation practice allowing nature to improve a person’s inner and outer health.

How does it work? Plants and trees release Phytocides which protect them from bugs and viruses. These same released Phytocides also improves a person’s immune system. How cool is that?! The more you are in Nature, the more efficiently it works. Nature emanates peace and tranquility because there is less stimuli. Your mind stops wandering; your eyes stop flickering; your body starts enjoying the natural sunlight (or moonlight if we are out looking for fireflies).

Rejuvenate with NATURE BATHING, Fort Hill Farms’ slower paced “walking meditation”, and revitalize with nature’s healing power.
