About Fi Hennessy

I’m Fi, the founder of Origin Massage and a pregnancy and postnatal massage specialist.

Before becoming a more hands-on therapist, I was an antenatal educator for 7 years where I developed a huge amount of knowledge surrounding fertility, pregnancy and birth. Prior to this, I had more of a corporate/sales career but after the birth of my first child, this became very unappealing to return to.

The birth of my second child solidified this desire to work in a field I was genuinely passionate about and so I began my work with The Daisy Foundation. I have had 4 full-term pregnancies, one miscarriage at 10 weeks and two chemical pregnancies as a result of IVF treatment for surrogate pregnancies. You might say I love everything about being pregnant and giving birth!

And I would agree. You can read more about my surrogacy journey in HuffPost. I’ve learned so much through the years, through my own body and through working with many hundreds of families in Sheffield.

I am passionate about helping people feel comfortable with their pregnancy, prepared and ready for birth and supporting new parents afterwards through massage. I specialise in pregnancy massage because I am familiar and comfortable with pregnant bodies.

Experience and passion combined

Anyone who knows me knows that I love love LOVE getting a massage! I find them relaxing a they make a huge difference to my mood. During all my pregnancies I have found that massages have helped me a lot and it was because of my own first hand experience that I wanted to train as a massage therapist and offer that after my antenatal classes came to an end. They are a match made in heaven, I think you will agree.

I have been able to combine my experiences of being massaged, my extensive knowledge of the pregnant body and my antenatal training and experience to become one of the few highly skilled and experienced pregnancy massage therapists in Sheffield.

I absolutely adore massaging people, especially pregnant people. Having worked as an antenatal teacher for 7 years, holding space emotionally, this was a logical next step, to create that energy connection where healing can happen.

I hope that people come to me in need of relief from aches and pains but what they actually get is so much more. I can provide a safe space for people to relax, a safe pair of hands to feel tense muscles unwind under. I have a deep understanding of pregnancy and birth from my prior training and my own experiences which allows me to empathise with the familiar aches and pains as well as the emotional roller coaster that labour and birth can be!
My ethos is to provide the best massage I can for each individual that comes to me. By finding out what each person wants and needs from their massage experience I can tailor my skills to the situation.

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!

Had a wonderful sports massage from Natalie! She got into all the tight spots on my neck, shoulders and back and released so much tension. Feeling much more relaxed now! Thank you 🙂

I came to Fi as a first timer to massage and I'll definitely be coming back soon! She was really good at explaining things and clearly knows her stuff. In addition to an excellent massage that loosened up my tight shoulders she also helped loosen my tight injured back up. Fi gave me some good tips and advice on where to seek further help to avoid injuring myself again which I really appreciated. I walked away very happy with my experience and couldn't recommend her more!
