As written by Hair Removal Expert, Julia, of Julia’s Beauty Hub (follow us on facebook >)

A Bikini Line laser or wax is the removal of hair from the sides and top of the knicker line.

We offer both temporary (Botanical Waxing) and permanent bikini laser hair removal in Southampton.

Our Sparkly Mulberry Botanical non-strip Wax is very gentle on the skin, it shrink wraps around the hair, and does not stick to the skin.

A standard bikini line hair removal is where those unwanted hairs that show outside of the pantline are removed.  If  it is your first time having a wax or laser treatment of the bikini area, it is quite normal to feel a little embarrassed or worry you have too much hair etc, but please remember, our hair removal Specialist is an expert, and knows how to make you feel comfortable and at ease.   She has also seen it all before, over the years, so rest assured, your bikini waxing experience will be superb, and you may even feel rather relaxed!

Sarah – Yoga Introduction

Welcome, I’m Sarah, a yoga teacher based in Southampton. I’ve been practising yoga for about 5 years and teaching for a couple of months now. I’m so excited to be able to share my passion for all things yoga with the world through my teaching.

I teach predominantly Yin Yoga, but I also run Vinyasa and Restorative classes.

How does Laser Hair Removal Work

Laser hair removal can be performed on any area of the body, including sensitive areas such as the bikini, areola, underarms, face.

Laser Hair Removal must be performed when the hair is in its active stage.  Not all the hair is at the same stage, so this is why a course of treatments is necessary to catch the hairs at the correct stage (growth phase).

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.

I have worked in the healthcare industry since 2005 and have always had a passion for maintenance of health from a holistic perspective. I qualified as an Occupational Therapist (BSc Hons) in 2010 and have since worked with a huge variety of patients in the NHS and private rehabilitation settings, predominantly with clients with neurological conditions.

Away from healthcare my passion for fitness and holistic health led me to gain qualifications as a level 2 exercise instructor (2010) and to complete two Yoga teaching qualifications; one in India in 2011 (Yoga Alliance accredited), followed by a further 200-hour British Wheel of Yoga accredited teacher training completed in 2014….

OVERVIEW OF THE KNEE – by Southampton Physiotherapist – Phil Coleman

The Knee

Written for YOU Massage & Therapy Centre Southampton by Physiotherapist Phil Coleman

southampton knee physioThe knee joint is a modified hinge joint, meaning that it flexes (bends) and extends (straightens) but also has a small degree of rotation.  Its stability is largely provided by ligaments such as the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL and PCL) and the medial and lateral ligaments. The knee’s movements are provided mainly by the quadriceps at the front of the thigh (knee extensors) and the hamstrings and calf complex behind (knee flexors).  The knees also have soft cartilage pads (the menisci) shaped like moon crescents on the medial and lateral aspect.  These act as shock absorbs and give knees greater stability.

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain can be caused by any number of things. In this article I will be focusing on what I see most commonly with my clients, which is postural/environmental resulting in muscle imbalances.

 

Let me start by explaining what I mean by postural/environmental and what a muscle imbalance is.

In general, as a society we spend a lot of our day sitting. Whether this is at a desk or in a car, train or plane. In fact in western civilisation we sit on average 23 hours a day. Continue reading

Waxing for men

Waxing for men has become so popular, and common.   Men are choosing the fuzz free option, because, not only does it feel nicer to be hair free, but a hair free back, underarms, and body makes the sensation of clothes feel much nicer, and also reduces perspiration significantly.

Because waxing removes the hair from the root, and not just the surface of the skin, regular waxing will soften the hair – making it finer, and more sparse.  The organic, and cruelty free Ashmira Botanica wax, and
