Acupuncture and Massage. The perfect combination to help YOU: available in Southampton

Acupuncture and massage are both very effective treatments to help a range of ailments and concerns. When they are both combined together it can create the best restorative treatment to help melt away the physical tension, quieten down a busy mind and bring the body back to a deeper level of balance.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture involves inserting needles into the body to stimulate sensory nerves in the skin and muscles.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy – known as chi or qi – believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. When the qi does not run smoothly throughout the body this can result in illness or imbalance. Imbalanced qi can manifest as a variety of physical and emotional symptoms such as chronic pain, fatigue, low mood, headaches, congested sinuses, anxiety, insomnia, digestive disorders, and menstrual problems. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture is believed to re-balance your vital energy.

Making it a relaxing, indulgent, blissful, sensory experience. Each moment is a “GIFT” to be enjoyed. Maybe that is why it is called the “PRESENT”!

“The five elements make up the basic elements of life, and they form the building blocks of the universe. These five subtle elements are projected through the five senses”.

✨SPACE/ETHER is the “expansion of consciousness” and is linked to SOUND/HEARING, the THROAT, expression and speaking your truth. Through the sense of hearing the element space is generated. Everything is vibration, frequency and energy.

AIR represents “movement of consciousness”, direction and action. It is linked to the sense of TOUCH, HEART, healing and love.

FIRE is the “transformation of consciousness” and is projected by the sense of SIGHT, the SOLAR PLEXUS, willpower, future plans and goals. It represents transformation, friction and heat. Where there is movement, there is friction, which creates heat and action.

WATER represents “liquefaction of consciousness”, balance, cold, the sense of TASTE, SACRAL CHAKRA, emotions, desires & life experiences you want to attract.

EARTH represents the “crystallization of consciousness”, the sense of SMELL, the ROOT/BASE chakra for grounding energy, to let go of things that are no longer needed or serve us and gratitude. Due to the heat of the fire and water, there is crystallization to make solid structures and matter.

Give yourself the gift of the present moment, and book your “Journey of the Senses” – 5 Elements Massage!

How Yoga can help YOU manage chronic stress, muscle tension from it + feel grounded & safe

How Yoga can help YOU reconnect with your body and mind, and deal with chronic stress & muscle tension? – What science has to say.

By Emilie, Manager & Yoga teacher at Younity studio – YOU Massage

Passionate about physical exercise since my youth, I noticed how increasingly lighter and brighter I felt after each Yoga class when I started as a student, in a deeper way that any other physical practice has done for me before. Recently the wonderful book “The body keeps the score” by Dr Van Der Kolk fed me with a lot of scientist expertise and documentation about how our emotional trauma is stored into our autonomic nervous system – fight or flight response – and therefore in our body. It provides some interesting pieces of information regarding the benefits of Yoga on such matter:

When people are chronically angry or scared, constant muscle tension ultimately leads to spasms, back pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and other forms of chronic pain (let’s add IBS, chronic fatigue, etc). They may visit multiple specialists, undergo expensive diagnosis tests, and be prescribed multiple medication, some of which may provide temporary relief but all of which fail to address the underlying issues.

`Scientific methods has confirmed that changing the way one breathes can improve problem with anger, depression, and anxiety and that yoga can positively affect such wide-ranging medical problems as high blood pressure, elevated stress hormone secretion, asthma, and low-back pain.
In their 2014 studies, Yoga turned out to be a terrific way to regain relationship with the interior world with a caring, loving, sensual relationship to the self. If you are not aware of what your body needs, you can’t take care of it. If you can’t feel hunger, you can’t nourish yourself. If you mistake anxiety for hunger, you may eat too much. And if you can’t feel when you are satiated, you’ll keep eating. This is why cultivating sensory awareness is such a critical aspect of trauma recovery. Most traditional therapies downplay or ignore the moment-to-moment shifts in our inner sensory world.

In yoga you focus your attention on your breathing and your sensations on your moment to moment. You begin to notice the connection between your emotions and your body – perhaps how anxiety about doing a pose throw you actually off balance. You begin to experiment with changing the way you feel. Will taking a deep breath relieve that tension in your shoulder? Will focusing on your exhalations produce a sense of calm?

Simply noticing what you feel fosters emotional regulation, and it helps you to stop trying to ignore what is going on inside you. As I often tell my students, the two most important phrases in therapy, as in Yoga, are “Notice that” and “What happens next?” Once you start approaching your body with curiosity rather than with fear, everything shifts.

In Yoga you learn that sensations rise to a peak and then fall. In a challenging position, you may first feel a sense of defeat or resistance, anticipating that you won’t be able to tolerate the feelings brought up by this particular position. A good yoga teacher will encourage you to just notice any tension while timing what you feel with the flow of your breath: “We’ll be holding this position for ten breaths.” This helps you anticipate the end of discomfort and strengthens your capacity to deal with physical and emotional distress. Awareness that all experience is transitory changes your perspective on yourself.”

Yoga is much more than a simple physical exercise, it can help you improve your mind deeply and sustainably, find love and peaceful confidence within yourself. It has been a game changer for myself and so many others. Let it become your game changer. Try out one of our Yoga classes in Southampton in our Younity – look for Yoga at Younity on Google 🙂

Discover the healing powers of Biomagnetism

Biomagnetism – or Biomagnetic Pair Therapy – is a natural complementary therapy that helps against a large number of illnesses through the use of pairs of medium intensity magnets. These magnets are used to normalize or equalize a disease organism’s pH level. Biomagnetism has been developed by Dr. Isaac Goiz of Mexico, as an alternative complementary treatment to restore and maintain physical and mental health.

My name is Angelika. I came across Biomagnetic Pair Therapy during my own healing journey from a chronic condition. After years of being unwell and trying a number of natural therapies, I still couldn’t see the light in the tunnel. I suffered from multi systemic symptoms mainly neurological ones, but also multiple sensitivities, chronic fatigue, digestive problems and severe anxiety. At this point, I was no longer able to work and was housebound / bedridden most of the time. My interest in holistic medicine grew over the years, as I continued my research about the mind and body connection and tried to find a cure for my debilitating symptoms.

Biomagnetic Pair Therapy turned out to be a game changer for me. Within a few sessions, my overal condition improved by about 50%. I continued the treatments for seven months and at that point I was at 80 percent back to normal. I was so impressed with the results of my treatment that I decided to train in this wonderful therapy. I received my training from Dr David Goiz in London.

I am trained in level 1 & 2 and advanced Biomagnetism, Microbioenergetics, Emotion Code, Reflexology, Reiki and Holistic nutrition.
In my sessions, I use a combination of Biomagnetism, Bioenergetics, Microbioenergetics, Emotion and Body Code, light work and elements of German New Medicine. I also work with brain reprogramming techniques.

Based on my personal experience, I truly believe that emotions, trauma and unhealthy thinking patterns are the root cause of most dis- ease. Therefore, true healing can only happen when the root cause is identified and addressed.

I specialise in treating Lyme disease and my approach to Lyme is quite unconventional. I have researched this condition for many years both as a sufferer and then a therapist and I have come to a few fundamental conclusions regarding most effective ways of treatment. I also treat conditions like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and recently long Covid.
I have helped many people restore their health from complex chronic conditions as well as minor ailments.
I am extremely passionate about helping others heal and committed to providing professional treatment in a carring way promoting health, happiness and well being of my clients.

Angelika is trained in level 1 & 2 and advanced biomagnetism, Microbioenergetics, Emotion Code, reflexology, reiki and holistic nutrition.

Meet Tom, New Massage, Reiki, Reflexology Therapist

Hi my name is Tom ‘The New Guy’, but you can just call me Tom. I Joined the YOU Massage team at the start of 2023. You’ll see me on the front desk and on the phone when I’m not in treatment so most of you will have the displeasure of my company. All joking aside, I’m here to help both on the admin side and as a therapist.


I offer Holistic, Swedish and Deep Tissue Massages, as well as Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki (primarily with crystals). My favourites being a toss up between Deep Tissue and Reiki, despite them being at pretty much polar ends of the spectrum.

I Like deep tissue because personally I think there is nothing better than a client coming in with an ache, pain or knot but at the end saying how much better it feels or how much range of motion they have regained.

Honestly, I think this comes from having a mum who suffered chronic back pain due to an old spinal injury, if it wasn’t for the masseuses and chiropractors she saw whilst I was growing up, I know life would have been a lot harder and much more painful for her. So I like being able to help people in the same position because I know first hand how much a difference it makes. It may not always be the most relaxing treatment but the benefits outweigh this drawback.
