Do you experience persistent pain?
Do you suffer from muscular stiffness?

Myofascial release may help you!


What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial release is a specialised technique that is thought to release restrictions within the connective tissue (or fascia), thus enabling stuck, stiffened and dehydrated areas to become soft and flexible again.

In this way, Myofascial Release reintroduces mobility leading to a complete release all the way to the deepest tissue layers. It is often found that tension release in one area will provide relief in other areas of the body, too.

Myofascial release may help with persistent muscular pain and stiffness.   It is suitable for many people, regardless of your fitness or activity levels. 


Myofascial release is performed dry without oils or lotions so that the therapist doesn’t glide over the skin and instead can feel deeper into the tissue.

With a highly developed sense of touch, the therapist will use their hands to apply gentle pressure for a few minutes at a time in order to achieve a  gradual release of tension.

Jazmin Yanez is a trained myofascial release therapist at Ashlins and will apply a range of techniques, some more dynamic than others, in order to tailor the treatment to your needs.
