A Must Read: Is FasciaBlasting Safe?
New Scientific Studies Tell the Tale!
Backed by published, peer-reviewed science1 involving blood chemistry, ultrasound, DEXA, and metabolic testing, FasciaBlasters have been proven safe and effective1.
Mainstream media tends to favor the traditional medical model. Fascia has been called pseudoscience, and fascia products have been called gimmicks. But we have to remember that fascia is a disruptive industry that can bring new life to the scene, sparking hope for a metamorphosis in beauty, sports, and health industries …and a resistance to the status quo narrative around healthcare.
New ideas are often ostracized in the beginning, simply for being new, as the world waits for conclusive research to be published. Luckily, for FasciaBlasting,* conclusive research has been completed and published for years, squashing internet chatter about things such as hormone disruption, sagging skin, cellulite getting worse, weight gain, or serious medical issues.
You May Have Heard “Hormone Disruption, Weight Gain or Cellulite Worsening” - Let’s See What The Science Says
Scientists subjected the FasciaBlaster tools to rigorous 3rd party testing to be able to answer these types of questions in a non-biased, non-opinionated way.
Thirty-three women who were FasciaBlasted to an “extreme” in their initial session and who continued to FasciaBlast for 90 days, 3-5x a week for 20 minutes per area, did not experience hormone disruption, weight gain, cellulite worsening, or serious medical issues.*
Although these symptoms may be occurring, they are not associated with the use of the FasciaBlaster. There are many other factors that could lead to these symptoms. We feel confident that if not one of the 33 participants had a particular experience in the controlled and measured environment, then it would not be an anticipated result of using the FasciaBlaster.
In addition, most of the complaints are contradictory to the results and conclusions of the researchers. For example, the metabolic1 rate was increased, and fat was spot reduced1 in the study, so this would cause the opposite of weight gain. Hormones were tested and showed improvement, not disruption. And cellulite was lessened or eradicated,1 not worsened in all the participants. And most importantly, no serious or lasting medical problems were reported.
It is very important at Ashley Black that our users understand that the body is very complex. We do not want our users being misinformed, associating medical conditions with the FasciaBlaster that are unrelated, Ashley highly recommends the book Never Be Sick Again to lend insight into the complicated nature of the human body.
Remember, in the study, researchers reported that “Some subjects reported mild symptoms of irritability, nausea, headaches, and bruising. These were found to be minor, and all subjects did not report any long-lasting injury or illness to the research team.’1 So keep this in mind when looking at anticipated side effects of FasciaBlaster use. Bruising is common as the fascia is regenerating until it is healthy. For a detailed blog on bruising, click here

Our Study On Connective Tissue, Cellulite, & FasciaBlaster Benefits
The clinical was conducted by the award-winning research laboratory, The Applied Science Performance Institute ASPI in Tampa, Florida. Our Class 1 FDA (Food and Drug Administration) registered medical devices study was meticulously designed to delve into key markers, blood hormones, inflammation, metabolism, subcutaneous fat, and, crucially, fascia and fascial adhesions through ultrasound imaging. Involving 33 adult women, this investigation analyzed the use of the FasciaBlaster tools, employed for 20-minute sessions, 3-5 times weekly, across a span of 90 days. The ensuing discoveries were notable:
A reduction in C-reactive Protein (CRP), a blood marker indicative of systemic inflammation. This decline, most pronounced within the initial 30 days, sparks optimism for those grappling with inflammation changes.
Elevation in PICP markers, signifying heightened collagen production. This aspect bears significance due to collagen’s role, encompassing 30% of your body’s protein, imparting structure and strength to the skin, muscles, bones, and connective tissues.
A marked increase in Serum Irisin Levels. This hormone, typically linked to High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), displayed significant elevation
The appearance of cellulite decreased. The study established a connection between cellulite appearance and the condition of the deep interstructural fascia.
Ultrasound imaging showcased collagen remodeling or fascia remodeling (Myofascial Release). This regenerative process holds importance as FasciaBlasting is the singular non-invasive method known to induce such outcomes
It’s paramount to acknowledge that the study underwent rigorous peer review, culminating with publication in Cogent Medical Journal. The conclusions of these findings affirm the efficacy of FasciaBlaster techniques as a fascia treatment, guided by principles of safety and rooted in science.
Ashley’s Tips for the Best FasciaBlasting Experience
In this video, Ashley Black Guru shares the wisdom of proceeding gradually, through the layers of fascia, with our tools! You don’t need to use excessive force. In fact, their optimal effectiveness is achieved through consistent, gentle application. Envision fascia like a multi-layered cake, where the icing between layers represents the fascia, and the cake layers symbolize the muscles.
Focus on the top layer of fascia, just like the cake’s icing. This motion should be light, quick, and quite energetic. Light and brisk, we always say. Initially, only exert pressure equal to that of the weight of the FasciaBlaster tool. The goal isn’t to oppose the body but to collaborate with it. This technique is best carried out using a small claw tool and then graduating to a large claw tool and a nugget. For hyper-sensitive tissue, back out and use a lymphatic flusher or scrubber tip.
Here’s where patience comes in. Allow the fascia to warm up, temporarily boosting blood flow to the area you are FasciaBlasting. Then, let your body naturally respond by opening up. It could feel a little uncomfortable, or it might be pleasurable, but FasciaBlast stopping short of pain. As the superficial fascia yields, follow the tool to the next layer, applying more pressure. Picture the cake - you’ve progressed past the icing’s top layer, or superficial fascia, and entered the cake’s realm, the muscles.
This sequence repeats, gradually unveiling the fascia layer by layer. It’s the most effective way to Fasciablast. Allow your body’s cues to guide you, slightly intensifying the pressure with each session until you can exert significant force while experiencing pleasure. When you can do it deeply and find it enjoyable, it signals that your fascia tissue has been rejuvenated or is already in good condition.

Authored by Ashley Black, Inventor of the FasciaBlaster
Ashley Black is a decorated inventor, thought leader, and entrepreneur. She is best known for her work in the field of Fasciology. Fasciology is the study of the system of the body called fascia. Fascia is publicly known as the connective tissue, or web, that holds our body together, but fascia is also the viscous system that surrounds and feeds every cell in our bodies. Her work is directly related to the regeneration of this system of the body and the astounding effects this process can have on beauty, sports performance, and medical conditions.
She is best known for inventing instrument-assisted fascia techniques and tools, commercially known as FasciaBlasters. The tools entered the marketplace in 2014 and have become a household product. Black was the first person to write a #1 National Best Selling book about fascia, and she was the first person to do a TED Talk on fascia. By 2017-2018, her innovations and perseverance were rewarded with the American Business Association Stevie Award for Entrepreneur of the Year. IAOPT also awarded her with the Inventor of the Year. She also hit Inc’s Fastest Growing Companies in America for the first time. This era was wrapped up with Ashley’s self-reported highest accomplishment to date: the peer-reviewed Medical Publication of Research proving that FasciaBlasters can regenerate fascia tissue.
Since then, Ashley has received several awards, beginning with a second #1 National Best Selling Book about the struggles of females in business and authenticity in branding. She also received two global Stevie Awards from the International Business Association: Woman of the Year and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Consumer Goods.
In 2022, Ashley founded The Fascia Advancement Academy and the Fascia Advancement Charity to teach bodyworkers Fasciology. She has hit Inc’s Fastest Growing Companies list for a second time, with over $150MM in revenue, profitable and growing. She boasts over 9 million social media followers and over 1 trillion unique media impressions for her work.
