Forest Wellness – the laid-back pharmacy
Surrounded by a thousand Spruce trees in this 200-year-old forest, a special kind of spa brings us into harmony with nature. Forest Wellness – this is pure relaxation at 1,700m above sea level. Yoga is even more relaxing on the wooden platforms under the treetops surrounded by relaxing birdsong. A small library in the forest invites you to linger in hammocks or on wooden loungers. For anyone looking to get closer to the art of mindfulness, here you will find all the necessary tips in this natural wellness environment.
Wellness however also includes allowing yourself to be pampered with cuisine. This is delivered by the picnic basket, which is filled with a wild herb smoothie and many delicacies plus a blanket, and can be pre-ordered at the Reiteralm. The Reiteralm is one of the 173 award-winning Alpine summer huts where you can indulge yourself with fresh regional produce. Take a picnic out in nature and relax away from the hustle and bustle and noise.
Intuitively, we know how well the forest makes us feel. A forest has an extraordinarily positive effect on body and mind. This feeling is not only felt but has also been biochemically proven by researchers. The two stress hormones of Cortisol and Adrenaline drop significantly after a day in the forest. For example, just being amongst the trees increases the body’s defence cells by 40%. The natural forest environment also has benefits against stress-related cardiovascular diseases, sleep disorders and depression.
A laid-back break in the forest – reduced stress and increased immune system!
