The benefits of touch are huge, we are social creatures who thrive with human touch, our skin is alive with receptors for information which is received through different pressures of touch. When touch is intended kindly, with care and appreciations for the person's situation, the effect can be restorative and re-energising.
The benefits of massage can be considerable. Below are just some of them but there are many more. Talk to one of our massage therapists about the issues you would like to tackle and they will help in any way possible.
Origin massage reviews
We have had a lot of lovely reviews from people who have experienced our massage sessions and it is clear that the warmed towels are a big hit!
Update - had a hot stone massage with Fi which I was a little apprehensive about as I hadn’t had one before.. and oh my goddd I would never get anything else now!! Fi was communicative and always made sure the stones were the right temperature and that I was comfortable. Amazing experience. Next time I want an Indian head massage. 😍
What are the benefits of massage?
Massage therapy focuses on muscle relaxation through touch, this will help you thoroughly relax and feel soothed.
The various styles, strokes and techniques of massage are ideal for helping muscles to ease off and soften.
A massage can help to reduce levels of the stress hormone noradrenaline as well as cortisol, an indicator of stress.
If you have an event coming up or have just completed one, massage could make a big difference to your performance and your recovery.
If you suffer with headaches, neck, shoulder or back pain, massage therapy could help to alleviate your symptoms and provide relief.
This may tie in with stress reduction but people who are more relaxed, generally, get less sick less often than those who don't.
Massage can stimulate blood flow to areas of the body where it might be particularly needed and help you recover from injury.
When muscles and tendons are helped to ease off you could find you experience increased flexibility.
