Improved sleep can be a benefit of massage
Life is stressful enough without the added frustration of poor sleep. Whether you're suffering with discomfort during the night, stress that won't let you drift off, insomnia, anxiety or depression, a massage could significantly improve your sleep.
Do massages help you sleep better?
Massage therapy reduces stress by decreasing the stress hormone cortisol and increasing mood stabilising neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Massage can be used to decrease stress, relieve anxiety and depression and increase the feelings of relaxation so that you can fall asleep more easily and feel rested when you wake.
When can a massage help?
Benefits of massage for improving sleep
Massage therapy focuses on muscle relaxation through touch, this will help you thoroughly relax and feel soothed.
This may tie in with stress reduction but people who are more relaxed, generally, get less sick less often than those who don't.
Regular massages can offer a natural aid to reducing stress and anxiety and alleviating depression symptoms.
If you suffer with headaches, neck, shoulder or back pain, massage therapy could help to alleviate your symptoms and provide relief.
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.
Which massage is best for improving sleep?
Some people prefer a harder massage style to tackle muscle tightness. Others prefer a softer, more soothing approach. Luckily we can offer styles of massage to suit all tastes.

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. 😍
