Could a massage help me relax?
The short answer is "YES!"
Massage has a physical impact on you but it also has emotional impact. As muscles are soothed and as tendons are eased off this brings with it a soothing sensation to how you feel. Many people find that a massage bring a sense of happiness into their life and even some people tear-up at just how good it makes them feel.
When can a massage help?
Benefits of massage for relaxation
Massage therapy focuses on physical, emotional and mental relaxation through touch, this will help you thoroughly relax and feel soothed.
We feel that the kind of relaxation you get through massage is very special. Our clients leave us reviews saying they felt calm, wonderful and rested after visiting us.
This may tie in with stress reduction but people who are more relaxed, generally, get less sick less often than those who don't.
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.
The various styles, strokes and techniques of massage are ideal for helping muscles to ease off and soften.
Which massage is best for relaxing?
The most relaxing massages are usually said to be hot stones massage and Swedish massage. The warmth and smoothness of the hot stones really can help in letting go of tensions and the long relaxing sweeping strokes of a Swedish massage are excellent at helping you destress. That being said, the effects of different massages can be experienced differently by different people at different times so there is no absolute answer to this question. Whatever you personally find relaxing is what is important.

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. 😍
