Chapter

Zusammenfassung

In diesem Kapitel werden Ihnen die relevanten Studien zu den kurz- und langfristigen gesundheitlichen Effekten des Waldbadens bzw. der Waldtherapie vorgestellt. Sie werden wissenschaftlich aufbereitet und bewertet. Dabei wird zwischen den entspannenden und erholsamen Effekten sowie den psychischen und den körperlichen Auswirkungen, auch auf verschiedene Krankheitsbilder, unterschieden.

Wenn Ihnen dieser Teil zu wissenschaftlich erscheint, dann blättern Sie direkt zum Fazit.
