Saturday, December 9th is fast approaching and preparations are well in place for the 2017 Wellnessfest taking place at Ivy Tower Hotel, Castlebar. The event is an all day event and starts at 10.30am and continues until 5.30pm. The day will be full of therapy sessions including reflexology, bio energy, sound therapy, holistic massage, reiki, aromatherapy and is an ideal time to meet the experts for Q&A. There will also be holistic learning mini seminars, life coaching, stress management etc. You can book your sessions with any of the therapists on duty for the day and there are many different individuals to choose from to ensure the right match for you.

The event will be opened by Dr Prannie Rhatigan, a medical doctor with a life time experience of harvesting, cooking and gardening organically with sea vegetables. Prannie is recognised as Ireland's leading seaweed expert and has represented Ireland's finest food abroad and has featured on many TV and radio shows all over the world.

Also speaking is Fiann O Nuallain author, broadcaster, TV presenter and regular weekend columnist for the Irish Examiner and an advocate of gardening for health & wellbeing. Fiann's background is in medicinal botany, nutritional science and horticultural therapy as well as holistic therapies, mindfulness facilitation and CBT counseling.
