How It Works!
Nature & Forest Therapy - Be Prepared
Time is of the Essence
Please be on time. A full Nature & Forest Therapy Session is generally less than a mile in distance during a 2.5 - 3 hour period. We are on a schedule and appreciate you planning to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the event.
Sessions take place rain or shine so please dress appropriately for the weather. If possible on a rainy day, a rain coat or poncho is recommended vs. an umbrella.
A session may be cancelled or rescheduled if the weather can pose risks to the participants. If a session is cancelled your pre-payment will be reimbursed less any fees. If a session is reschduled, your pre-payment can be applied to another date / time.
Health & Accessability
Most locations are handicapped accessible. However, we want to ensure your participation is possible so please let us know if you have any mobility issues before the session.
Additionally, please let us know if you have any allergies to anything out in nature such as bees or any types of food so that we can be properly prepared.
Each location comes with it's own set of things to be aware of. Your guide will advise you during the session introductions of the details including prevention and responses.
Here are some common awarenesses:
Animals and Other Beings
Nature & Forest Therapy is not yet covered by medical insurance here in the United States of America. However, The Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Guides & Programs (ANFT) is working diligently to try and have this service covered in the future.
Additionally, organizations such as ParkRx America is working to promote time in nature being prescribed by doctors as well.
