Massages & Reflexology
Impact Massage, provided at Simply Silhouettes by Indre Miskine, has the goal to provide effective relief from aches and pains - whether a long term discomfort or illness, an everyday niggle or new injury.
After a full consultation the best integrative treatment is chosen using techniques and modalities from Swedish and deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and Myofacial release, Indian head massage and reflexology, cold and hot stones and also dry cupping.
Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. It is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery and enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that is mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
Trigger Point Therapy
Specifically designed to alleviate the source of pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body.
When pressure is applied to these areas it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, helping to restore balance in the whole body.
Some of the benefits of reflexology include its ability to:
Stimulate nerve function
Induce a deep state of relaxation
Help relieve sleep disorders
