Wilderness Day Walks With Bianca Di Salvo Bring Many Health Benefits

In Japan, the practice of forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is about immersing oneself in the forest and soaking in the atmosphere through the senses.

Inspired by this and other nature-based practices, Bianca Di Salvo offers both in-person and remote wilderness day walks designed to foster greater physical, psychological and spiritual health.

“My half- and full-day walks offer a wealth of opportunity. People report improved clarity of purpose, releasing things that are holding them back, and a greater sense of overall well-being,” she says. A growing body of research shows benefits like lower blood pressure, a stronger immune system and a lifted mood, to name just a few.

Upcoming wilderness day walks include a remote walk on August 20 and September 10 and an in-person walk on September 24 in lower Westchester County.
