Finnish people have been drawing their health from the forests for centuries. We have been going into the woods for stress release and healing even before the modern research into the medicinal qualities of trees. Nowadays we know that the phytoncides emitted by pine trees take down the cortisol and adrenaline levels of the body, decrease the blood pressure and increase the white cell count. However, studies show that even a virtual tour in the forest can bring significant health benefits.
