Relaxation settles in simply upon walking through the front door of Origin Massage Studio. In the reception lounge, a bright purple orchid pops against the bare gray wall, the simplicity of it encouraging your mind to power down. The last of the mental clutter falls away as you sink into one of the couches, where you can take a few minutes to decompress before your massage therapist comes to retrieve you. The therapists use each client's specific condition to design a custom treatment, utilizing relaxation, deep-tissue, or hot-stone techniques when necessary. Those with extra tension can commission a four-handed massage, and companions looking for bonding time can book a two-person treatment, a more pleasant option to being handcuffed together for a day or two.
