Improved healing can be a benefit of massage
For many people, one of the biggest benefits of massage is the improved healing that is possible. Massage could significantly improve the speed of recovering from surgery, an injury or acute pain.
Does massage improve healing?
Massage increases healing in a number of ways. Massage therapy increases blood flow to areas of the body that are lacking oxygen which activates molecules to reduce inflammation and promote mitochondrial growth.
Massage also helps to remove waste products and breaks down and realigns the collagen fibres of scar tissue. Massage could significantly improve the speed of recovering from surgery, an injury or acute pain and can be used to replace pain medication.
When can a massage help?
There are so many different circumstances where a massage could help bring about an improvement physically, mentally and emotionally. Studies prove that the healing power of physical touch, especially that of massage, can help you feel like you've been massaged back to life.
You might be a sports person who has pulled a hamstring, a gardener that's pulled a muscle in their back or an office worker who is getting neck and shoulder pain from sitting at a desk all day. Whoever you are, its possible that massage could help you on the road to recovery.

Massage can stimulate blood flow to areas of the body where it might be particularly needed and help you recover from injury.
If you suffer with headaches, neck, shoulder or back pain, massage therapy could help to alleviate your symptoms and provide relief.
Massage therapy focuses on muscle relaxation through touch, this will help you thoroughly relax and feel soothed.

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. 😍
