Edgar was professional and really made me feel comfortable. The venue is neat and peaceful. I enjoyed the body scrub. It leaves your skin really smooth. The massage was good too and it is on par with massages I have received from other masseurs. I recommend Edgar.

I had a wonderful massage at Origin Wellness Spa. For someone who has chronic neck and shoulder pain, Origin's deep tissue massage did just the trick. I would 100% recommend. Rayhanna and Tammy have created an excellent spa experience.

I’ve never had lash extensions before and I am literally blown away. They are ridiculously pretty, and very natural looking - with just enough pizazz to really draw attention to my eyes. I’m beyond thrilled with the result. Comfort is a master of her craft and my hour long appointment flew by with her insightful and charming conversation. The application was comfortable and I am not aware of the lashes at all.. except when I look in the mirror!! Gorgeous gorgeous girls get their lashes done by Comfort! I will definitely be back!

Sports Massage FAQs

A sport’s massage is designed to boost blood circulation, increase tissue elasticity, and reduce muscle tension. It can be used as part of a muscle warm-up before exercise or to prevent and relieve injuries caused by repeated physical activity. The massages were originally given to athletes but non-athletes can benefit from them, too.

You're likely to pay around ZAR 650 for a sport's massage in Observatory.

A sport’s massage is focused on myofascial release – myo meaning muscle, fascial meaning fascia – the white connective tissue surrounding the muscle. It helps prevent and relieve injury caused by strenuous and repeated physical activity.

Deep tissue massage tends to be a full body massage; a sport’s massage targets a specific area of the body that needs healing or relief.

It depends on your pain threshold and the extent of your injury and muscle stress. You’re likely to feel discomfort during and after your massage, but not to the degree that you start to tense up in order to take the pain. Your massage therapist should tailor their technique to work within your pain threshold.

There are four main types of sport’s massage:

Pre-event – given 15-45 minutes before an activity, a pre-event sport’s massage focuses on the areas of your body that are most likely to be exerted during the activity.

Post-event – given up to two hours after an activity to help it help myofascial release.

Restorative – aims to prevent injury and enable intensive training in the lead-up to an sport’s event you are training for.

Rehabilitative – aims to reduce tissue inflammation following an injury.
