What is Hypnosis?

The word Hypnosis comes from the Greek word Hypos meaning sleep. However, hypnosis is not a sleep state. A person in hypnosis is in a day dreamy state and usually aware of everything that is said and done. Hypnosis is a safe and very natural state, we pass through it each day just before we fall asleep and just before we wake.

The way hypnosis is often depicted on television or in films is extremely inaccurate and may lead people to believe that hypnosis can control someone’s mind and make them do something against their will.  In reality, the complete opposite is true.  A Hypnotherapist CANNOT make you do anything you do not want to do and during hypnotherapy YOU are always in control.

The session lasts about 45 minutes and is a very good taster/introduction to hypnotherapy. Or maybe you’ve experienced hypnosis before, in which case you will probably be aware of the very relaxing, calming and therapeutic effect it has on your mind and body.

Want To Stop Smoking? How Hypnotherapy Can Help

Marion Harvey, Hypnotherapist at YOU Massage Therapy, Describes How Hypnotherapy can Help You to Stop Smoking

Want To Stop Smoking?

Hypnotherapy is fast becoming a popular and effective way of helping people to give up smoking.

Smokers know that smoking is not good for them and that by giving up they will become healthier and of course wealthier.

Stop smoking at YOU Massage Therapy Southampton
They will also gain more time, not to mention no longer having to endure the driving wind and rain huddled outside just to feed an addiction they probably no longer want.  A lot of smokers also realise that using vaporisers, patches or gum is just another addiction.
If you are considering hypnotherapy to give up smoking, the first step is to make sure you are choosing to quit for yourself.  Hypnotherapy is most effective when you really want to quit.  If you are doing it because you think ‘well maybe I should’ or because your partner or a family member is pushing you to, you may not get the results you want.

Emma Coleman, YOU Massage Therapy Southampton

Introducing Emma, Our New Sports Therapist At YOU Massage Therapy, Southampton

Introducing Emma And How She Can Help You

Hello all, my name is Emma Coleman from Phoenix Mobile Sports Therapies. I am fairly new to You Massage Therapy, Southampton and would like to take an opportunity to introduce myself and let you have an insight in to how I got here and what I can do to help you get back to feeling better.

Emma Coleman, YOU Massage Therapy Southampton
Emma Coleman

I am qualified Sports and Remedial Massage therapist, Sports therapist, Sports exercise and fitness first aider; I am also currently a Physiotherapy student at the University of Southampton.

My background is in the Armed forces and I served 15 years as a Vehicle Mechanic and carried out deployments to Afghanistan, Kenya and Sierra Leone. During my time serving in the Army I trained as a Sports therapist and Archery Coach. As a coach I delivered training sessions to personnel recovering from mild traumatic brain injuries such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – PTSD.

Sports have always been a huge part of my life having been a competitive archer representing the Army at competitions, representing REME at Football and Hockey, and more recently, playing rugby for the Southampton University Ladies Rugby Team. I now support the team as Pitch Side first aid for the first team.

Treatments offered by Emma

Below is some information on the treatments I can offer:

This is a group of massage techniques delivered to the body’s soft tissues. It aims to remove muscular tension, improve circulation, stretch muscles and to break down unwanted adhesions between the soft tissues.

The methods used are Soft tissue release (STR), Myofascial release (MFR), Deep tissue massage (DT), Muscle energy techniques (MET) and Trigger pointing (TP).

Even though this category of massage therapy is called sports massage it is beneficial for all individuals who find they are in discomfort, not just for those who are sporty. If you find yourself with aches and pains from everyday life, recovering from and preventing injuries or just having done a bit too much at the gym, work or at home, a sports or remedial massage will help you get balance back into your body by helping to work away the stress and tension in muscles, helping to relieve discomfort.

Sports Therapy is great to help you recover from injury (rehab), increase mobility, build strength and make postural changes. The therapy is about working with you to achieve your goals through exercise to build strength, flexibility, endurance and confidence in exercise. If you have been out of exercise for a while or have noticed that you are getting aches and pains, this therapy will help bring structural balance to your musculoskeletal system.

Sports therapy aims to educate individuals in exercise and rehabilitate following injury or operation, but is equally applicable for those who just want to learn some exercises they can do at home or place of comfort.

Five Benefits Of Massage Therapy – Injury Management And Prevention For Seniors

Five Benefits Of Massage Therapy – Injury Management And Prevention For Seniors

Written for YOU Massage Therapy, Southampton by guest author, Marc Innes, Owner and Principal of the School of Natural Therapies

Whether you are an athlete, a senior citizen, someone who went through surgery, or a simply a regular Jane or Joe, you will find massages beneficial and enjoyable. In general, massages help reduce stress levels and lessen the effects of depression, anxiety and digestion problems. It can improve blood flow, as well as the immune and nervous systems.

As people age, the body becomes increasingly frail and movements slower. Geriatric massages are specifically designed to meet the needs of the elderly. The process involves using the hands to work on the muscles, soft tissues and joints in the body.

Massaging the body enhances blood circulation, increases range of movement, and relieves pain caused by chronic ailments such as arthritis, Parkinson’s, stroke or heart disease. It also helps reduce the chances of injury.

Here are some of the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy for the elderly.

1. Improves blood circulation

Getting the blood to flow to the various parts of the body becomes more difficult as a person ages. Massages counter the effect of aging by improving the circulation of blood around the body.

2. Enhances balance and gait

One common concern when it comes to seniors is getting into accidents and falling. As people grow older, their bones become weaker and more fragile. A massage helps improve the blood circulation to the limbs and the person’s sense of balance. This reduces the chances of falling.

3. Softens the muscles and tissues

Muscles and tissues harden over time due to lack of activity. Massages improve the blood flow to muscles and tissues, reducing the tension in the body. As a result, the muscles and tissues soften.

A deep massage helps reduce stiffness and pain on the joints around the hip, shoulder and knees.

The body’s muscles and joints also become more flexible after a massage, enabling a wider range of movement. This offers the elderly a chance to function more regularly and perform daily tasks.

4. Relieves symptoms of arthritis
