My Story and Thoughts on Fascia Blasting
Fascia Blasting has become a rapidly growing movement over the internet. Facebook as it’s platform, has helped educate and motivate women to take control of their own bodies. The FasciaBlaster® is a tool created by Ashley Black, the fascia guru, that is used to help remove restrictions, adhesions and distortions of unhealthy fascia throughout our bodies.
I found Ashley Black’s FasciaBlaster® back in March ’16 and started blasting April ’16 as soon as it came in the mail. I purchased the FasciaBlaster® to help relieve the pain I had in my shoulder at the moment and other alternative therapies gave me no relief. Another reason for the purchase of the FasciaBlaster®, after my first bikini competition I was mortified of the cellulite still visible on my thighs from the professional photos taken the day of the show. I had an ah-ha moment that the FasciaBlaster® might be my game-changer for another chance to compete!
I read the instructions, watched all the videos and went to town! OUCH! It hurt! I lasted maybe 2-3 minutes on each area of my body in the beginning. And I bruised and bruised and bruised. I was ok with the bruises, I knew they were a part of the journey and bruising meant healing. The detox symptoms were gentle with me unlike what others have reported.
Over 6 months of blasting, 4-5 days a week, 30-45 minutes each session, I started to see some awesome results. I had been through 2-3 worst before better stages during that time. And as I took on clients to help them I learned more and more about the process of fascia blasting.
I competed again and my results were a smoother more developed posterior side and more defined muscular lines along my quads, that I never had before. I didn’t win but my body never looked better! Picture- Blue suit after blasting – pink suit before blasting.
Pink suit, before. Blue suit, after blasting!
Is fascia blasting for you?
YES! It’s worth trying if you fall under one of these:
- You have crepe skin, loose, and aging
- You have noticeable cellulite
- You have arthritis and pain in your joints or muscles
- You have a lack of flexibility and movement throughout your joints
- You have Fibromyalgia, Plantar Fasciitis
- You have pain from an accident, or overuse that hasn’t been relieved by other modalities or therapies
- You are interested in improving posture
- You are interested in helping your muscles fire better
- You need to increase circulation
- And many other conditions……
- If you have any of the contraindications listed in the Contraindications video.
All results are different for each individual and we don’t make any claims.
After professionally Fascia Blasting for over a year now, I can say that fascia blasting affects everyone differently. The results will vary and there is not a time-line you will see results. I can say that I’ve helped smooth out cellulite, spot reduce and create more muscle definition, increase muscle activation, flexibility and muscle growth, and decrease muscle and joint pain.
I encourage everyone to try fascia blasting if it’s not a contraindication to a condition you currently have and that you are cleared by your medical provider. It’s a great tool to help heal our bodies so that we can live smarter, healthier, and longer.
