What can I expect with a Myofascial Release Massage?
Everyone is different, so everyone will need different techniques and no two treatments are the same. I will always go over techniques used so feel free to ask questions! Some techniques include:
Anterior Pelvic tilt correction (great for low back and hip pain)
Pelvic Floor manipulation (great for women and hip pain)
Dermal Pulls (just feels amazing, great for everyone)
Low back and scapula unwinding (great for shoulder, neck, and back pain)
The technique itself is slow moving and has a consistent pressure. This pressure is firm but does NOT hurt. Tranquil Therapy does not apply techniques that are painful and pressure is gauged for the clients needs. Some have described a “good” hurt that is more uncomfortable than painful.
Treatments start out with about 5 minutes of questions and an assessment before moving on to the table.
We will create a custom treatment plan and start mapping the progress!

What are the benefits of Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release has been a go to technique since 2011 that continues to help my clients live a better quality of life. There is so much to say about this technique but feeling is believing. Myofascial Release can be combined with Trigger Point Therapy depending on the clients needs. Myofascial Release has shown a great improvement in :
Fibryomyalgia (reported full nights sleep and fit to keep her job)
Endometriosis (reported pain free long car rides and a more active lifestyle)
Headaches (reported fewer headaches in just 4 treatments and little to none in only 7 visits)
Chronic Pain (varies- ability to stand for longer periods, keeping jobs, and greater mobility)
Whiplash (reported less pain while driving and clearer state of mind)
Sciatica (reported little to no pain, and a more active lifestyle)
I started going to Ashley after a new exercise routine left me with some injuries that aggravated chronic joint issues and tightness. I kept going because Ashley is the absolute best! So talented and kind and fun to chat to. I have been a client for years and highly recommend her.
Fascia and Myofascial Release-
by- Alexandra Sarkuni
Massage therapists around the world practice a variety of techniques, some of them rooted within alternative medicine. Myofascial release, or MFR, is a type of osteopathic therapy that alleges to treat pain and restore skeletal muscle mobility. It achieves this by improving blood and lymphatic circulation, stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles, and relaxing contracted muscles. This is achieved through manipulation of fascia, an elastic, tough, and thin type of fibrous tissue that sheathes muscles and other structures within the human body.
“Myofascial release” as a phrase was coined by an osteopath named Robert Ward in the 1960s. Ward partnered with physical therapist John Barnes to spread this new therapy. The techniques were popularized the teachings of Andrew Taylor Still, and remain relevant in massage centers today.
Myofascial pain has two basic causes. Fascia can tighten over bones, muscles, and organs, binding them down and restricting the space they need to function. It can also become damaged itself, resulting in contracted muscular tissue and unprotected skeletal structures. Either of these two cases causes restricted blood flow to the afflicted areas, impairing healing and causing pain. Osteopathic theory posits that trauma, strain, infections, lethargy, or psychogenic disease can restrict the soft tissues of the body’s fascia, resulting in restricted blood flow, pain, and muscle tension.
Massage therapists apply myofascial release therapies to stretch and relax the fascia. These techniques intend to improve blood flow to the affected areas and loosen the fascia’s grip on bones and muscles. This is achieved through gentle, sustained pressure in specific areas, which is why it may also be referred to as myofascial trigger-point therapy.
