Most people would probably agree that being among trees and nature is good for the soul. But can meditating in a forest actually aid your health?
Forest bathing is the latest wellbeing therapy to blossom in America and Europe after beginning in Japan a few decades ago and it's starting to gain interest in New Zealand.
It's also known as Shinrin-yoku and it's helping stressed out city dwellers slow down. There are even therapists specialising in the practice, like Sam Lewis based near England's New Forest.
