About Kelly Kiss Salish Sea Nature Connections

Forest therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, or forest bathing. Shinrin-Yoku means to “bathe in the atmosphere of the forest” and is a term that was originally used by the Japanese government in the 1980”s, "to describe the practice of spending time in the woods to soak up its health benefits”. The Japanese have thoroughly researched and discovered many positive health benefits of spending time in nature. Research shows that if practiced regularly, forest “bathing” can improve your health, wellness and happiness!

Benefits of regular Forest Therapy Walks:

  • Decreases stress and anxiety by lowering cortisol levels.
  • Boosts the immune system by increasing natural killer cells.
  • Heightens mood and enhances creativity.
  • Improves sleep and increases energy levels.
  • Helps you to feel a greater sense of peace and calm.
  • Deepens your connection with yourself, others and the natural world around you.

Kelly is a Certified Forest Therapy guide and Certified Trail consultant through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides & Programs. She makes her home on Salt Spring Island and the Salish Sea with her son, partner, their three dogs, cat, and surrounded by nature.  Kelly has been practicing and teaching the healing arts for over eighteen years and all of her life she has had a deep connection with trees. Thanks to the practice of forest therapy, she is also now a re-emerging artist (www.kellykiss.ca). She enjoys spending her days slowing down through meditation, yoga, walking, forest bathing, creating nature inspired art, writing, spending time outdoors in the garden and with her animal friends, and family. 

Kelly offers guided forest therapy walks along with her partner Peter, on Salt Spring Island and Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia Canada. A nature connection walk with Kelly will leave you feeling relaxed, peaceful, grounded and more alive!  Kelly and Peter offer regular walks at the beautiful Gardens at the HCP (Horticultural Centre of the Pacific) in Victoria, BC.  See website here: https://hcp.ca/ She also offers regular scheduled group and private walks on Salt Spring Island at Ruckle Park, Burgoyne Bay and Farm House Flowers.  See website here for more information: https://www.salishseaforesttherapy.ca/walks.html All walks including private walks can be booked online directly on website. Kelly & Peter can also assist land managers in the creation of an ANFT certifed forest therapy trail. This would allow for a permanent "self guided" sensory forest bathing walk for people to experience the health benefits of this practice. Please contact us if this interests you!
