Introducing Lidia: Physiotherapy and Cosmetology Professional

Hi everyone!

My name is Lidia and I just joined the You Massage team!

Let me tell you briefly how my journey began….

It all started with a dream; a dream of helping others and living in harmony with myself. I thought the best way to accomplish this is to become a doctor.

However, fate led me to another, and now I know, a better path, to work Holistically. I became a physiotherapist, massage therapist, nutritionist and cosmetologist, helping people without medicine.

Working with clients and listening to their stories, I began to notice that the way we look and feel is based mainly on our lifestyle.

This is how my fascination with integrative health and cosmetology began. This is a client-centered approach that focuses on the root cause of the problem and the whole person – not just physical symptoms. The root cause is usually our lifestyle.

Why a Holistic Approach to Skincare is Essential

Guest Blog written by Cherish Skincare for YOU Massage Therapy Southampton

When a skin problem rears its ugly head, our initial response is usually to try and treat the symptom – blast those nasty spots with a strong spot treatment or to put lotions and balms over dry, red or irritated skin.  Whilst some of these treatments can provide some short-term relief, they rarely deal with the root cause of the issue.

It is important to remember that your skin is the largest organ of your body with an extremely important function (primarily to protect the rest of your body from microbes and the external environment) and is connected via your bloodstream to the rest of your body.  Recent research has shown that the skin is particularly connected with the digestive system, which is why if you suffer from digestive problems there is a high chance you may also experience issues with your skin as well.

It’s therefore important to take a holistic approach to skincare that considers our diet and physical health, as well as our emotional and spiritual well-being as all these aspects of our lives, are intrinsically interconnected; if we feel good about ourselves, we will take better care of ourselves – this results in better skin and better physical health which in turn helps us feel better about ourselves…

That is why at Cherish we don’t just create great, natural skincare treatments (although we do that too), we consider the whole person, both physically and emotionally.  If your diet is Continue reading

Skincare Facial southamptonWe all know it is essential to take care of our skin on a daily basis.
