Deep Sleep Massage
Travel creates lots of tension above your shoulders, from your temples to the occipital ridge at the back of your scalp. At the Fairmont Empress’ Willow Stream Spa, the Deep Sleep Massage focuses on your head and neck until you feel nap-ready. Then, the therapist touches rhythmically on pressure points down your spine in a technique called “catwalking,” before slowly rocking your limbs till you’re rag-doll loose. Bonus: The Tara Spa Therapy silk eye pillow used in the second half is filled with lavender, peppermint and rose petals – all touted as having anti-spasmodic properties to help muscles and mind shake it off in tandem.
