Experience Forest Bathing at Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain
Forest Bathing, also known as Shinrin-Yoku, is simply taking a slow walk in the woods while taking in your surroundings through your senses.
The practice follows the general principle that it is beneficial to spend time bathing in the atmosphere of the forest for enhancing health, wellness, and happiness.
There is a synergy between forest bathing and scandinavian baths, both offer a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.
This connection to nature is proven to be beneficial for your overall health and wellness and Scandinave Spa is fortunate to now offer its guests this experience.
The Only Spa Certified by ANFT in Canada
The Scandinave Forest Bathing Trail will officially open on June 6th, 2019 and is certified by the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy (ANFT) with the assistance of a Beth Foster, a Forest Bathing Guider from Barrie, Ontario. Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain is on the only spa certified by ANFT in Canada.
The Scandinave Forest Bathing Trail is conveniently located on small section of the spa’s natural property, just outside of the Baths’ activity. A perfect addition to a relaxing visit to the Spa, either before, or after, you experience the Scandinavian Baths. The trail is 0.8 km and leads you through seven suggested marked stations (invitations). These invitations are clearly marked on the trail and will correspond with the Forest Bathing Guide you receive from a Guest Service Agent at reception.
Wander slowly to each post, taking as long as you wish to experience each invitation. This develops into mindfully moving through the landscape in a way that cultivates a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, mirroring the results achieved in the Baths.
To fully realize the benefits of the Forest Bathing Trail, please give your full attention to both honoring silence and engaging in digital detox. These attributes are not only part of the Scandinave brand but will help you achieve complete rejuvenation and a deeper connection to nature.
Take time to disconnect from your everyday and escape to a tranquil connection in nature. Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain is open daily from 9am-9pm. Guests must be 18 yrs and older.
Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain is known for their renowned Scandinavian Baths situated on 25 acres of serene natural forest. The Spa offers Registered Massage Therapy treatments and now offers their Baths Guests, and registered visitors, a certified Forest Bathing Trail experience.
