What style of post-event massage is best?
There are two answers to this question. Some people prefer to be physically and mentally soothed after an event. The adrenaline can be very high and the massage can help bring that back down to normal levels.
Other people prefer a harder or deeper massage after an event to help really work on the muscles and tendons that have been through so much.
Whatever your preference, we have massage therapists who can help you.
After a large physical exertion, massage can be a fantastic way to tackle a wide range of issues that have the potential to have a big impact. One of the biggest benefits of a massage in these circumstances is that it reduces the severity of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
By softening, stretching and lengthening the muscles which became tight during the event it decreases the effect of DOMS. Getting any kind of massage withing 72 hours of the end of the event could make a huge difference to your recovery. Find out more.
Benefits of massage after an event
This may tie in with stress reduction but people who are more relaxed, generally, get less sick less often than those who don't.
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.
Reduces risk of injury
Increasing oxygen through massage therapy energises muscles as well as keeping them strong and healthy.
After physical exertion there is the potential for muscles to be tight and sore in the following days. Massage can help alleviate this soreness.
Reduce adrenaline and Relax
Massage helps to reduce adrenaline levels which cause tense muscles and increased heart rate, so you can 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. 😍
