Until recently, forests have been underestimated as a source of well-being and health.

The International Society of Forest Therapy (ISFT) demonstrates the benefits of forests for well-being and health.

Therefore the ISFT promotes research into the effects of forests on health, develops a basis for high-quality training for forest therapists, organizes an annual international conference and works on the networking of all involved.  

Forest Therapy

Forest therapy is suitable to favorably influence the limitations of patients caused by illness and to alleviate suffering. The areas of application include cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, psychosomatic, orthopedic or neurological diseases.
