The Caucasus Tour travel concept is based on the principles of ecotherapy

Nature’s comprehensive impact on human mental, emotional and physical well-being. The ecosphere around us grows us, shapes us and has a huge impact on the quality of our life (perception, feeling, analysis and visualization.

Our travel offers integrate the principles of the power of nature and aim to meet the needs of our customers, not only to explore, but also to improve their cognitive skills. Indicators of the quality of air, water, soil and winter, the amount of solar, wind, geothermal heat energy, biological resources – all this determines the state of human health, and its proper balance raises the quality of life standards and the health indicators of an individual organism.

The Caucasus region is rich in unfathomable natural resources – living and inanimate nature resources and provides opportunities to improve the general state of health of the body.

According to the American Psychological Association (APA), ecotherapy is a growing field with increasing research supporting its many potential health benefits.
But the idea of ​​nature as a healer has been around for millennia. In India, the ancient and traditional system of Ayurvedic medicine relies on “natural” or nature-based methods (such as local, seasonal foods) to treat physical and mental ailments, notes the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH).
Also, according to John Hopkins, traditional Chinese medicine is based on the belief that humans are interconnected with nature and are strongly influenced by its forces.

Scientists began investigating the effects of nature on human health in the 1970s, when studies showed that views of nature were associated with positive feelings of friendliness, love and joy, according to a 2018 study. in a review of research published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology. Since then, study after study has found similar mental health benefits of nature.

There is a good reason why these experiences in nature evoke such positive feelings. Science confirms what many people have known for centuries: there is a strong connection between mental health and interaction with the natural world.

In addition, a new type of therapy called ecotherapy or nature therapy is emerging that is based on this principle to help people cope with mental stressors and improve their quality of life.
Ecotherapy is a general term that includes nature-based activities and nature therapy programs designed to improve mental and general health.

It’s important to note that there’s a difference between ecotherapy and simply spending time in nature (although of course you can still get mental health benefits from the latter).


How does ecotherapy or natural therapy work?

The principles of ecotherapy are quite simple. “It’s basically incorporating nature into some mental health or therapeutic practice,” says Derrick Sebree, Jr., Psy.D., a clinical psychologist specializing in ecopsychology and multicultural identity counseling at the Michigan School of Psychology in Farmington Hills, Michigan.

Ecotherapy can also be practiced indoors, observing nature through a window, delving into the processes and actions of nature, such as plants, using metaphors or visualization techniques.

Nature therapy also includes techniques such as animal assistance, wilderness retreats, forest bathing, and horticultural therapy.
