Bee Air (Bienenluft) Therapy Part of Apitherapy Trend in Europe


Good vibrations can leave you buzzing at first bee therapy retreat

Pet therapy, cat caf├ęs and emotional support animals have all sought to enhance the bond between humans and nature for those in need of a bit of unconditional love. As therapy crazes go, insects have yet to be embraced.

However, tranquillity seekers are now being offered an hour cocooned with 60,000 honey bees whose wing vibrations create “a positive energising effect which calms and relaxes”, according to a new treatment centre.

The bees come and go beneath a wooden triangular structure, known as an apipod, in which clients lie on beds, taking in the pollen aromas and sound of activity from the six hives without fear of being stung.

Guests can relax, or even fall asleep, surrounded by the aromas of honey, propolis, nectar and pollen

The practice, known as apitherapy, is a fast-growing trend in eastern Europe....
