‘Shinrin Yoku’ – Vancouver Island Old Growth Forest Photography. It has been proven scientifically through multiple studies that a walk in the forest or more specifically Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing) exposes people to the highly beneficial effects of Phytoncides which are released from trees. These Phytoncides have been proven to increase NK cell activity which helps to kill virally infected cells, as well as detecting and controlling early signs of cancer. Phytoncides have also been scientifically proven to boost the overall immune system, lower blood pressure and heart rate, reduce stress, anxiety, confusions, and help with sleep while boosting creativity. Further research led by Vrije University Medical Centre in the Netherlands found that during a study of 46 participants that by just looking at still images of nature is enough stimulus to significantly lower our stress levels. I hope some of these beautiful forest scenes and prints I have captured can bring some serenity into your home and place of relaxation! I portion of all my Forest Fine Art Photography Print sales go to help protect these amazing ancient places such as Fairy Creek, Eden Grove, as well as this grove, all of which are truly irreplaceable! Funds raised from these print sales have been used to purchase supplies for the Fairy Creek Blockade and the Eden Grove Blockade, as well as adding to the legal defence fund for the Forest Defenders of the Fairy Creek Blockade. Thank you for viewing and reading this far, it means a lot to me, and hopefully we can help protect the Ancient Old Growth Forests of Vancouver Island.
