Origin massage reviews
We are very proud of our reviews and hope that the positive comments from our previous clients will encourage you to come and visit us.
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. 😍

Improved blood circulation
Massage promotes blood circulation which means many people feel more energetic after a massage.
A massage can help to reduce levels of the stress hormone noradrenaline as well as cortisol, an indicator of stress.
This may tie in with stress reduction but people who are more relaxed, generally, get less sick less often than those who don't.

Both emotional and physical stress causes muscles to tense. Booking in for a deep tissue massage can help you to relax, alleviate the tension built up in muscles and help to improve your mood - it's also a bit of time for yourself where you can shut the stress of daily life out and bask in some much needed me-time.
If you suffer with Fibromyalgia or have trouble with headaches, neck, shoulder or back pain, a deep tissue massage therapy could help to alleviate your symptoms and provide short term relief.

The deep massaging of muscles and ligaments allows for a greater range of motion to be possible in most cases. Deep tissue massages have the ability to improve blood flow and oxygen supply to muscles. This, in turn, may help reduce pain and decrease muscle adhesions.

If you have injured muscles, a deep tissue massage can help stretch tight or twisted muscles and can also facilitate the movement of toxins from your muscles.
