Airwave Massage

About This Service

This powerful, full-body massage (sometimes called "Compression Therapy") encourages circulation and eliminates toxins and excess water, helping with weight loss and cellulite treatment.

One of the primary benefits of Airwave Massage is its impact on the lymphatic system. Important for circulation, the lymphatic system cleanses the body and supports the collection of toxins from the body's various organs.

In the blood's process of transporting oxygen, wastes from metabolism and dissolved fats enter the blood and lymph. These are transported to the kidneys, which filter and purify the wastes and then eliminate the toxins through the urine. If the lymphatic system weakens, these toxins clump together, resulting in edema. Thus, poor circulation can lead to deposition of toxins and fat, dull skin, acne on the face, etc.

By allowing dilation of capillaries, Airwave Massage accelerates circulation, waste metabolism, and the dissolution of fats entering the blood and lymph. This enhances the flow of the lymphatic system, the evacuation of toxins from the body, and the elimination of fat, in addition to reducing instances of muscle spasms.

It's also deeply relaxing. The continuous, fluid movement of the compression from the toes to the ends of the arms has the effect of "putting you back in your body"--grounding you and calming the nervous system. Many clients equate it to a giant, warm hug. In fact, it is so soothing that many end up falling asleep by the end of the session!

Preparing for the Service

As with all of our services, we recommend drinking plenty of water both before and after the session to help with the elimination of toxins. High quality water is provided at Origin Wellness.

We recommend wearing lightweight loose-fitting clothes for this service. You will take your shoes off for this service.

You will not be able to use your cell-phone during this service as your arms will be massaged. In general, we recommend leaving all technology at home, or in one of the provided lockers so that you can completely relax and not be bothered by notifications and calls.

The attendant will help you find an appropriate level of pressure at the beginning of the session.

This place is a dream! So much so that after a few amazing treatments at Origin Wellness I  had a vivid dream that I hid in the building so I could stay overnight and enjoy all that this place has to offer. I woke up feeling so satisfied...My advice - try  everything!

Karen Buckley

I have never experienced anything as relaxing and restorative as my day spent here! I started with the intro session and the next day did a full day of services all planned specifically for me by their amazing staff. I left feeling with a sense of calm and yet a renewed energy. It was fun, healing and for a whole day of services, really affordable! I can't wait to go back!

What an awesome place! I've never experienced such amazing services...all under one roof. Origin Wellness is innovative with cutting edge treatments right here in St. Louis!  Highly recommend the salt room and Bio Balance. Thermal Relax is sensational.  I have throbbing varicose veins. After just one treatment in the thermal relax bed, the throbbing had subsided and my circulation was improved.
