FACIAL REFLEXOLOGY

Facial Reflexology works by using gentle facial massage techniques for precise stimulation of reflex points, nerve points and zones on the face and scalp.  As with hand or foot reflexology, there are points on the face that represent areas and systems within the body.

The aim is to help reduce symptoms and effects of many common ailments but also to provide total relaxation, thus encouraging the body and mind to start to heal. The face has a high density of reflex points which are very sensitive to signals sent by the organs and other areas of the body and their response to stimulation is quickly transmitted to the part of the body concerned. The proximity of the face to the brain and cranial nerves is what makes this therapy so effective.

Some of the benefits of Facial Reflexology are:

Julia at YOU Massage & Therapy Centre, Southampton, is able to offer Men’s Intimate Laser Hair Removal from the discreet space of our Bedford Place Studio

Laser hair removal is safe on any area of the body because the laser does not pass beyond the second layer of skin where the hair follicles are.

BENEFITS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Male intimate laser hair removal helps increase comfort and reduce chafing. Also a reduced likelihood of transmission of some form of STD’s and pubic lice.

Introducing Intuitive Deep Tissue Massage Therapist – Daisy

Hi!  I am Daisy – massage therapist from Eastern Europe.

I graduated as a massage therapist in 1997 and immediately I had started work as a masseur at my home city in a big leisure centre.

There I practised classical, holistic and deep tissue massage. Also I carried out sports massage to the clients of the fitness hall and the sports centre.

My interest in massage and learning of new techniques lead me on to Japan,  where I’ve stayed for 6 years. That time I had the chance to study about zen as a philosophy, as a lifestyle, as a massage therapist also I learnt a lot about Reiki healing and Japanese culture and language.

Introducing Sally: Massage Therapist, Yoga Teacher and trainee Physiotherapist

Hello my name is Sally and I have just started working at the You Massage & Therapy Centre, Southampton. I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and my journey as well as giving you an insight into what I can offer here.

Waxing vs Shaving benefits

YOU Massage Southampton Waxing with Ashmira Botanica

Waxing removes  the hair from the follicle (root), which will result in finer, sparser hair growth if done regularly.

It will take around 3 – 6 weeks for hair to grow back, though for some people, this can vary due to the different stages of growth.

Non-strip/peelable wax (as opposed to strip wax- some call it hot wax –  is used on sensitive areas, as this wax encapsulates the hair, and does not adhere to the skin, thus making it a good option for these areas.

Benefits of waxing vs shaving:
