A dedicated advisory board fosters a culture of continuous improvement, ensuring that forest therapy evolves in line with the latest scientific findings and remains a valuable tool in promoting holistic health for humans and the planet.

Moreover, a Science and Medical Research Advisory Board for forest therapy plays a pivotal role in spearheading exploration into novel areas, particularly those that have been under-researched, such as Relational Forest Therapy™.
