World of Wellbeing

Picture yourself relaxing on the sun-dappled grass amongst trees that have stood in the ground for hundreds of years. This is WOMAD’s own arboreal sanctuary, with various tents offering a selection of treatments from massage, acupressure and shiatsu to the more unusual ‘sound baths’ – we have it all, including daily yoga sessions – and there’s even tea and cake!

Read about treatments available this year: 

Back Angels
Inversion therapy uses an inversion table to gently tilt one to an inverted angle (60 degrees max, though often not that far) yielding therapeutic benefits – primarily relief from back/neck pain, but also improved circulation, lymphatic flush, oxygenating the brain and improved posture…and almost always instant relief from sciatica…So debilitating at a festival!

The idea of hanging upside down as a remedy for back problems has been around since at least Roman times. And with good reason. The simple logic of using gravity to undo the damage that gravity itself has caused is intuitive. Like cushions on a much-loved sofa, the discs between our vertebrae become squashed and misshapen over time from the relentless downward pressure of gravity. Whilst our bodies strive to repair the damage overnight , laying in bed alleviates only 70% of the stress on our back. A fact borne out by gradual height loss as we age. Inverting frees the spine of pressure, allowing the discs to plump up and absorb fluid from surrounding tissue – freeing constricted nerves and becoming once again the springy shock absorbers necessary for a healthy back. Festivals are brilliant fun but can be hard on our backs – carrying kids, standing around, dancing, sleeping on uneven ground – Inversion Therapy can provide immediate relief to those suffering from stiff, aching backs, allowing for a better festival experience.

Sessions cost £10 and are completely hands-off, appealing to those not into the ‘touchy feely’ stuff. The actual ‘hang’ is 10 mins, however the total time incl. initial briefing, health questionnaire, after care advice etc easily takes up 15-20 mins. Weekend passes are also available for customers to hang as often as they like.

Meditate to Regenerate
We offer free meditation classes to all of your festival goers, teaching scientifically proven stress relief techniques. We give people a silent sanctuary where they can relax after a long music filled day. We have now been part of the WOMAD experience for 6 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed every year, our tent has always been very popular with many people returning throughout the week.

Massage Minute
A team of two – Bernie and Alex – offer chair massage and thai yoga massage. Come see us for help with back pain, joint stiffness, tiredness, stress and tent neck! Our focused treatments get straight to the point to help you feel better – all in time for the next band!

Hand Reading
Chirology is the study of the weight, shape, lines and dermatoglyphics of the hand, reflecting genetic, physical, psychology and health conditions and the individual. The size and shape of the hand is determined largely by hormones, while the palmar lines are a result of the interaction between a persons brain and nervous system. The result is an incredibly unique and personal map of someone’s body and mind functions. At WOMAD you can receive individual and group readings which always draw a lot interest as well as being insightful and fun. It is great to have whole families and groups of friends see and understand each other in this objective and fascinating way.
