Abstract

“[…] genes cannot change over just a few hundred years, so we live in our modern society with bodies that are still adapted to the natural environment.Inevitably, we are in a state of constant stress and the recent rapid spread of computer technology has made this state of stress even worse.”
Miyazaki Yoshifumi

 

In Japan a type of preventive medicine is practiced, born from ancestral intuitions, but now supported by numerous scientific researches that approve its multiple psychophysiological benefits: shinrin-yoku [森林浴, ‘forest bath’].

 

From the results obtained in a 2019 study, conducted in collaboration by the University of Exeter Medical School [GB], Uppsala University [SE] and the University of Michigan Medical School [US], it would seem that spending at least 120 minutes a week immersed in nature is associated with states of well-being.

 

How do our sympathetic and parasympathetic systems react when immersed daily in real ‘pixel baths’ [gasoyoku, 画素浴]?
