I want to Fi for a pregnancy massage and it was incredible. I was suffering with painful back and shoulders as well as needing vital relaxation. Fi took the time to listen and understand my needs, was thorough and thoughtful in her approach.Her knowledge and passion around pregnancy and post natal care is incredible. I felt cared for and safe at all times. From giving me the time to get myself together pre massage, to the cleverly placed pillows for additional comfort and the time post massage. Nothing ever felt rushed or hurried.The massage itself was one of the best I've had (and I've had many). My comfort was considered through out and the environment was so cosy. It was exactly what I needed to help me reset and face the oncoming pregnancy challenges in a positive state of mind.I will definately be going back for my post natal care package 🙂

Had a massage with Fi after shortly having had covid - it was restorative. She took time to ask about my symptoms and any lasting effects, and and really tailored the treatment. I can't recommend origin massage highly enough!

Fi is an absolute gem. I had the most relaxing, needed pregnancy massage at 34 weeks. The restless legs were totally soothed. Can’t wait for my next one.

What a treat! I had a 90 minute pregnancy massage with Fi and she is just fabulous. I left feeling physically and mentally lighter and very calm and refreshed. She is a true professional and expert at what she does. I will certainly be booking in another massage (or two!) before baby arrives. Having not had a massage for a long time it made me realise that my well-being should certainly be prioritised more often and it was worth every penny. See you again soon Fi! x

Your general massage questions answered

Do you have a question about massage therapy? We’ve put together a list of our most frequently asked questions about massage therapy below and you can also find more information about specific therapies on the individual massage treatment pages.
Origin Massage is in South Sheffield, in the Nether Edge area of the city. You will find us on Abbeydale Road and we are ready to help you relax and unwind.
First of all know that nearly everyone has something about their body which they feel a little self conscious about. Secondly, your massage therapist absolutely does not mind about what you might mind about. That said they will treat any concerns you have with sympathy and compassion. Some things might be important to know about in order to give you an appropriate and safe massage, but this should be picked up with any health pre screening. If you would prefer the massage therapist does not touch an area of your body at all, please just say, this is not a problem at all.
Some people can find massage so relaxing that they do fall asleep, especially pregnant and post natal people! This is always a great compliment to the therapist, however if you fall asleep right at the start of the massage, your therapist may gently wake you so you can enjoy the rest of the session. Natural bodily responses to massage can include vocalising as stress and tension releases and expulsions of wind or drool. Your therapist knows this can happen and takes every sign of relaxation as a positive one. As the rooms are stripped, cleaned and sanitised between clients, you can rest assured your signs of relaxation will not cause an issue for anyone.

We have an online booking system where you can select the massage therapist you would like to work with and see their treatments and availability or you can select the massage style you would like and then select the massage therapist and date and time that is available.
Whole body relaxation can sometimes lead to signs of arousal, which, while perfectly normal should be kept privately to yourself. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, but our therapists are working in a professional therapeutic environment which does not include sex work.
If you feel you need a bathroom break, simply let your therapist know and they can pause the massage. No bother at all.
Sometimes natural conversation flows at the start of a massage which then fades as the relaxation deepens, however there is no expectation that you must chat throughout. You are most welcome to talk if you need to and certainly for some deep tissue techniques the therapist will be checking in with you about depth, pressure and comfort. But if you would prefer not to chat – you don’t have to.
This varies from person to person and will depend on what is important to you. You might want to ask where they trained and when they qualified, their insurance details, what kind of massage they do and how they will accommodate your individual needs.
Your massage therapist should check in with you regarding pressure to give you the opportunity to ask for more or less pressure. They should also be checking non verbal signals such a signs of relaxation, breath holding, flinching or giggling. Please do feel free to simply say you need more or less pressure, your massage therapist will love this feedback.
For your comfort and to avoid over heating, you will be advised to undress to your underwear. You will be draped with towels and plenty of coverings for modesty and warmth. If undressing is posing a problem for your massage please speak with your therapist prior to your session.
