Reading Hut & Nature Cinema
When the average person spends almost seven hours a day ‘bathing’ in the glow of a computer screen, the need for forest therapy has never been more apparent. Coined by the Japanese government, the term Forest Bathing translates to simply ‘taking in the forest atmosphere’. Encouraged to leave all senses open, the concept of Forest Bathing is simple; to feel and breathe in every ounce of nature. By wandering slowly, breathing mindfully and deeply, focus on every scent, sound and colour of the woodland and essentially bathe in its beautiful bio-diversity. The natural sounds of the woodland silence the loud work and technology ‘noise’ and the body can feel truly calm in blissful nothingness amongst the trees. Growing awareness of the medical benefits and science behind spending time in nature has led the Japanese government to fund a $4 billion research project, finding that forest bathing significantly reduces blood pressure, cortisol levels and heart rate while alleviating stress and depression.
So, take advantage of Moddershall’s stunning countryside scenery in the heart of rural Staffordshire, explore our woodland walk and take some time out in our Reading Hut and Nature Cinema. Embracing the unique location of your spa day or break, you can simply relax and savour the pleasure of being close to nature whilst being surrounded by 72-acres of private woodland. Sitting seamlessly on the tranquil water’s edge of our secluded lake, mindfulness can truly meet nature at the Nature Cinema as you bathe in every physical and ambient component of the woodland as it dispenses its unique natural medicine for the body and mind.
We also have a tennis court, and cycle hire, if you fancy being a little more active too! Read more about our spa facilities.
