SPRING VIBES 2016
“In Springtime, Love is carried on the breeze. Watch out for flying passion or kisses whizzing by your head.”
– Terri Guillemets
A Healing Mat
The Bio Amethyst V-Mat offers a simple treatment for pain relief, from muscle tension to headaches. For thousands of years it was believed that amethyst could amplify energy and was often used by healers. This is combined with today’s knowledge on infra red light, to blend ancient and modern healing techniques to soothe those aches.
Bodywork for Balance
Rolfing is not to be confused with ROFLing (rolling on the floor laughing, for those of you not accustomed to textspeak), but it may leave you just as happy. The practice involves hands on, deeptissue bodywork to release injuries and bring the body back to a state of ease.

Time to Unplug, 10-12 June, Westmeath

I have found that getting more probiotics into my system is brilliant for my health and see the effects really quickly. So it’s lovely to see the increasing ranges of options available. Instead of knocking back another supplement, give your taste buds the treat of kefir smoothies and drinks. Going dairy free? They also stock coconut milk kefir! Nifty!
