“A couple weeks ago, I had a head massage from Jules at Innisfree Farm and what a great surprise!!! The experience was super relaxing. I loved all the different movements that went along with the massage and the atmosphere was more than perfect. Jules is very experienced and you can feel it. Highly recommended – can’t wait to go back!”
If you are looking for a different holistic modality for relaxation, relief of common symptoms and coming back into balance, consider the myriad of benefits of Ayurvedic head massage; physically, mentally/emotionally and spiritually. After one or a few treatments, most common health complaints such as migraines, tight muscles, tense scalp, dandruff, TMJ, anxiety, depression, mental fatigue or insomnia can be reduced or eliminated.
Ayurvedic head massage is an ancient East Indian holistic practice that has been used as a daily practice for 5,000 years to ensure good health and wellbeing, and enhances the body’s innate wisdom of healing. It is, in fact, a massage of the entire body. Marma points (vital energy or meeting points of the body where veins, arteries, tendons, bones or joints intersect) are a reflection of the entire body. Massaging these marma points promotes self-healing, brings balance to body, mind, and spirit, and relieves tension from head to toe. It is known to offer clearer vision, both physically and intuitively. It improves concentration as it increases the ‘brain’s life force’ and oxygenation in the brain. It encourages overall circulation, boosts the immune system and helps to improve function of the five senses.
Special formulated aromatherapy oils are applied to enhance the experience and the benefits. The massage is performed with the client sitting in a comfortable chair and includes a variety of techniques and rhythmic movements and subtle pressure on the marma of the whole upper body. An aromatherapy oil applied to particular points on the head nourishes the scalp and hair, but also helps to release ‘congestion’ or ‘busyness’ in the head, and brings about deep relaxation. The mini face massage helps to relief sinus congestion, jaw tension and relax deep facial tissues.
Come experience a 20 minute mini massage offered at Innisfree to feel nurtured as you let your body and mind slide into a safe and comfortable space. Feel yourself slip away to another world. Feel the tension, anxiety and overwhelm melt away. Feel more balanced and connected to your self and the world around you. And then honour this experience by relaxing on the farm for a while afterward to let the effects sink into your mind and body.
As some clients have said, “your magic fingers”… “takes me to a place where I have never been before.”
“This whole process is likened to your favourite symphony – stimulating a physical, emotional, and mental response bringing pleasure, and ultimately producing a state of bliss.”
