Lawns Of Tranquility

 

** UPDATE Friday 3rd August**

TREATMENTS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED

 YOU CAN STILL BOOK OUR FREE CLASSES!

All Together Now has produced its very own unique wellness area, which has aptly been named Lawns of Tranquillity.

Creating a calming environment in a festival area is no easy feat, yet with careful planning and direction from the area’s co-ordinator Debs Armstrong and Yoga expert Kary Stewart, we have achieved something that we think our audience will really enjoy and take great benefit from.

Set beside the lake, main lawn and partially into the woods, the area offers some privacy and quiet for those who wish to partake in the number of treatments we have available. The uniquely pod shaped treatment area will facilitate a number of relaxation activities including sauna, hot tubs, yoga, massage, along with other types of healing including sound, taste, sight, touch and sixth sense.

At the entrance to the treatment area, a trained receptionist will check in guests and advise them of treatments that are available and suitable for them. This specific area called BREATHE is themed around sense of smell - with aromatherapy oils scenting the air as an introductory phase of the guest’s experience. From there, guests will either go to a workshop or class in the heart of the space - or an individual treatment in one of the five rooms.

We aim to bring wellness to our festival in the most fitting way and meet the standards we know our audience will expect. The treatments will be carried out by professionals in a stunning set up to give the best festival wellness experience possible.

Local yoga collaborators include the Kilkenny School of Yoga and representatives from the House of Yoga, who will offer yoga for adults and children and meditation.

Killkenny's lead teacher Essie Millie has half a lifetime's experience and will offer a class for those that feel yoga is way out of their reach – can’t sit cross legged, can’t reach your knees, never mind your toes? These classes will break down the idea that yoga has to be intimidating.

(IN)SIGHT 

A very light touch approach, utilising readily available guided visualisations, which are a great introduction to learning how to relax the body. It's about inner sight and imagination. Here the guests are guided to a room with a comfortable reclining armchair, noise-cancelling headphones, a lavender eye-pillow, a blanket and an uninterrupted hour of pure rest and relaxation. They listen to the audio of a guided visualisation, helping to relax the nervous system and develop inner sight.

YOGA NIDRA - Hilary Harvey
Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique which leaves you with a sense of wholeness.

KI MASSAGE - Carol Martin -
Ki massage works on the muscles of the body and also on its energy points. When muscles are really tight, they slow down or block the energy flow. By relaxing the muscles, energy is released to flow freely.

BIO ENERGY - Eileen Kennedy (House of Yoga)
A hands on healing technique that connects into the Universal energy field, stimulating the natural healing of the body, encouraging healing on all levels of the body.

TASTE 

You are what you absorb. How we fuel our bodies with has an impact on how will they run. Seems simple enough so why do so many of struggle with it? This consulting room is for Therapists that specialise in Herbal and Nutritional medicine. Nutrients and other food components influence the body's ability to heal. 

Nutritional Therapists work on each individuals nutrition to ensure we feel the happiest, healthiest we can be. It's not about depriving the body, it's about fuelling it to work at its best. Medical Herbalists make use of plants whose traditional uses are backed up by modern scientific research and clinical trials.

NATUROPATHIC HERBALIST - Fabiana Colmati  and Bernard Harris
Naturopathy aims to enhance the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms. It is a complete health system concerned with identifying the root cause of disease and treating the person holistically. Treatments that work against the body’s own natural processes are avoided. Naturopathic herbalists use the natural healing properties of plants to treat imbalances within the body.

Singing Bowls.jpg

SOUND

From the drumming of our ancestors to the latest breakup song , our species has sought to self-medicate with sound vibrations for millennia. Music floods our brains with dopamine- the happy chemical. It also releases oxytocin, a natural painkiller and bonding hormone.  It changes our brains and therefore our bodies. Sound Therapists specialise in harmonising and healing through sound  using the human voice, tuning forks, singing bowls and gong therapy.

SOUND MASSAGE - Deb Kin
Sound massage on the individual creates the movement of any stagnant energy in the body.  It is useful to aid insomnia, depression, anxiety and so much more. It has a very calming and relaxing effect on the mind and body although it is working magic on the inside.

SIDEH SOUND HEALING - Puranshant Kaur
Refreshing, relaxing, renewing sound therapy using sacred bowls, gongs and tuning forks. Sound as therapy can provide results for a variety of issues including;Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Sleep Disorders, PTSD, Pain and Inflammation amongst many others.

TOUCH

Most people love a good massage. Therapists draw from a wide range of massage techniques which may  include gentle massage, stretches, relaxation work and deep tissue massage.Treatments include Shiatsu and Massages, Reiki and Reflexology.  Craniosacral Therapy has a very subtle touch and Acupuncture is also included  as it is highly effective.

AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE - Essie Mille
During an aromatherapy massage, you inhale these essential oil molecules (highly concentrated plant oils) or absorb them through your skin. These are thought to promote beneficial changes in your mind and body by affecting the limbic system, a region of the brain known to influence the nervous system.

AYURVEDIC YOGA MASSAGE - Fabiana Colmati
Combination of Deep Tissue Massage with coordinated breath work and assisted Yoga stretchings. The therapist uses both hands and feet to deliver the massage on a futon on the floor.

ACUPUNCTURE - Joanne Den (House of Yoga)
Derived from ancient Chinese medicine, fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body to open up the flow of energy.

SHAMANIC REFLEXOLOGY - Julia Lane
Shamanic Reflexology works really well as a compliment to yoga or any opening practise and assists with grounding, releasing and revealing the stories/iss works with the body. I believe it would be a great fit for a festival.

SIXTH SENSE

Beyond the five bodily senses there's also something less tangible:  the bio energy of living systems. 
We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things.  It can't be measured empirically but we know that when this energy flows  uninterrupted we feel great.
During Reiki, the recipient remains clothed.  The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. Thereis no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas.

REIKI - Monika Dziatkiewicz

SAT NAM RASAYAN HEALING - Peter Whyte.
Sat Nam Rasyayan is a centuries-old healing art. It helps to release tendencies and limitations in body, mind and emotions — the common reasons for sickness. Learn to lead healthy relationships, to meet people without prejudice and to be present with yourself and your surroundings. 

SHAMANIC RELEASING & THAI MASSAGE - Alex Rey
Energy body work which aims to help empty out the old emotional debris and stuck feelings  such as fear, anger,  guilt, rage, or shame  that you no longer need so that you can create room in your life for that which you desire

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPYEsther Foley
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle way of working with the body using light touch. People sometimes ask about the name Craniosacral Therapy and think it only refers to the head. In fact Craniosacral Therapy works with the whole person and changes may occur in body, mind and spirit during and after sessions.
