YOU Massage Southampton


Frequently Asked Questions

Any of our treatments from our wide range of therapies can be tailored around your individual needs. The style of treatment you select indicates the approach the therapist will take to your consultation and treatment. Our 3 most popular treatments are:

  • Holistic Massage will combine all therapies to balance, often firm but slower and more relaxing than deep tissue, includes Aromatherapy
  • Deep Tissue Massage targets deep layers to muscle to release tension, sometimes a little uncomfortable as the therapist breaks tension down
  • Sports Massage is more targeted for injury and chronic (long term) conditions and is a bit more active than Deep Tissue

If it is your first visit to us, yes, we are required by law and by our own code of practice to always carry out a full consultation with every new client. You will appreciate why once our warm therapists sit down with you and ask you to let them know about you, your health and well-being and the treatment has already began, as they suggest ways of tailoring your time exactly for you.

    No!!! We only offer professional Massage and Therapies for the benefit of healing and relaxation so please please do not ask for 'anything else' because it upsets us greatly. We are fully aware that other establishments may offer an 'extra' service, so please, be sure you do your research and if that's what you are looking for, you will find it somewhere else, NOT here, where our therapists have spent years training and refining their practice. Do not insult us by asking for anything else. Thank you! Glad we cleared that up!

    The Therapists working with YOU Massage have a wide variety of qualifications. Many are as highly qualified as they come, so the chances are, if you have a suitable cover for Massage, Osteopathy, Acupuncture etc that, yes, we can match you with a Therapist so you can claim.

    Please be sure to inform us on booking that you are doing so as part of an insurance claim and forward us your insurer's details so we can be sure you have a treatment with a therapist with the right level of qualification and/or accreditation. You can read more on Health Insurance Here >

    We know, people often say a 'Massage has to hurt to do you good' but that isn't always the case, when seeing an experienced therapist, the goal really is NOT to hurt you! That being said, the level of discomfort you will feel depends on several things.

    Discomfort during massage is normally associated with firm pressure, your therapist will discuss pressure with you and ask you to please let them know if you are uncomfortable at any time.

    Pain during a massage is like pain in exercise, it occurs when he muscles are not used to it and depends on your own individual pain levels and condition

    If you have never had a Deep Tissue massage, or you have not had one in over a year, then this often is a little painful as the therapist will need to break the tension apart which in turn causes a rush of fluids to the areas which can cause a little inflammation = healing. The first deep tissue massage is always alittle more uncomfortable than the rest. If you feel discomfort after a massage, please ice the area (something cold wrapped in a tea towel) for ten min at a time for 24 hours after the treatment.

    If you are worried about pain or discomfort, or really just want to relax, may we suggest a Holistic Massage and let your therapist know you would like a light - medium pressure

    If you are having a Sports Massage or Osteopathy appointment, it is wise to wear 'sensible' underwear or gym clothes so the therapist can assess your posture if required, which is difficult to do in everyday clothes.

    During your massage, you will be asked to undress down to your underwear. Ladies, bra is optional, but we ask the straps to be underams please so we can freely work shoulders, you will be more comfortable with it off but that is personal preference. You will bo offered 1-2 large towels to cover yourself over with. We prefer all our clients keep their underwear on for hygene reasons please.

    If you are coming in for a Thai Massage, Shiatsu Massage or Facial, we suggest soft and comfy clothes, as there will be no need to take these off
