FasciaBlasting: What Is It?
Allow us to Introduce Ashley Black’s FasciaBlaster, Where Miracles Happen Every Day
You’ve probably heard of or seen Ashley Black’s FasciaBlaster on social media, heard whispers at your local gym, or even heard a friend raving about their incredible results! But what exactly is FasciaBlasting? Fascia? And how the tools help you attain undeniable results.
Fascia Blasting, in essence, is an engineered, targeted approach by which you utilize Ashley Black’s FasciaBlaster Tools to regenerate fascia specifically.
You’ve probably seen this as someone applying oil to their skin and using one of our tools to apply pressure. Moving up and down over their fascia tissue, scar tissue, soft tissue, and fibrous bands. In this blog, we embark on a journey to explain what fascia blasting is, why fascia health matters in the first place, and reveal the peer-reviewed and published research benefits of FasciaBlasting!
What The Hell Are The FasciaBlaster Tools And How Are They Used?
First, let’s understand a little bit about fascia. Fascia- A crucial network that surrounds every cell in our body, much like how soil nourishes a plant. The tools are handheld, non-electric, and meant to be used on bare skin with oil. Unlike traditional devices such as foam rollers, wood tools, percussion guns, Gua Sha, and so on, they don’t target fascia. FasciaBlasters don’t roll, don’t pound, or skim over the surface. Instead, they feature claws that gently “brisk and brush” into the fascia and myofascial tissue. The goal is not to massage but to regenerate the fascia. Our results 1 are more similar to stem cells or Platelet Rich Plasma, which proliferates cells and remodels collagen, 1 than other gadgets on the market for “fascia massage.”
The FasciaBlasting process involves warming the skin with thermogenic Blaster Oil, allowing the body to open up naturally. It’s a gradual journey, much like peeling the layers of a cake. You begin with the top layer of fascia, like the icing on a cake, and then, as your body allows, you progress deeper into the actual cake's muscle layers.
Ashley Black emphasizes to beginners the importance of starting lightly and gradually working your way into the deeper layers of fascia, layer by layer. The experience should feel mildly uncomfortable to pleasurable. If it is truly painful, you are going too hard. This approach helps you progress as your body gets more comfortable with the process. Follow your body’s gradual opening; don’t force it. Click here for video tutorials
Now that you’ve had an overview of FasciaBlasting, let’s talk about why all of this is important
Why Does Fascia Matter?
One of my favorite medical definitions of fascia comes from the National Library of Medicine 1. I personally love that researchers acknowledge that we have not yet arrived at a definition of fascia:
“Researchers do not agree on one comprehensive "fascia" definition. Despite the scientific uncertainty, there is an agreement with medical text that the fascia covers every structure of the body, creating a structural continuity that gives form and function to every tissue and organ.
The fascial tissue has a ubiquitous distribution in the body system; it is able to wrap, interpenetrate, support, and form the bloodstream, bone tissue, meningeal tissue, organs, and skeletal muscles. The fascia creates different interdependent layers with several depths, from the skin to the periosteum, forming a three-dimensional mechano-metabolic structure.”
We can see that the importance of fascia is rooted in its role as the life force of our bodies, giving life to the cells! Our bodies are an intricate collection of trillions of cells. orchestrating a symphony of functions that unite our minds, bodies, and spirits into a dynamic, energetic whole. Every cell in the body finds itself enveloped and sustained by fascia, quite literally being fed via fascia
Think back to our analogy earlier, of the soil that nourishes a plant. Fascia is the soil that nourishes the roots of your cellular growth. If you were to notice a plant wilting and on the verge of demise - what action would you take to revitalize it? You would probably focus on revitalizing the soil around it that provides the plant’s nourishment. In the same way, fascia acts as the nurturing soil for our cells. It is a conduit for transferring vital energy within the body and feeds our cells 1.
In essence, fascia matters profoundly because it forms the foundation upon which our cellular existence thrives. It’s the vital sustenance and energetic connectivity that sustains the dynamic interplay of our bodily systems.
It is this dynamic that precisely prompted us to fund a peer-reviewed research study 1 to design and prove that there is a product on the market specifically made to assist your body’s vital function

Our Scientific Study: Unveiling The Mystery of FasciaBlasting
The Effects on Cellulite, Fascial Adhesions, and the Bottom Line on the Benefits of FasciaBlasting!
In our groundbreaking study, researchers embarked on a journey to explore the intricacies of FasciaBlasting, examining blood markers for hormones and inflammation, metabolic processes, subcutaneous fat, and, most notably, the profound realm of fascia through ultrasound imaging. This study, involving 33 remarkable women, gave them the transformative power to try FasciaBlaster tools! They were used for just 20 minutes, 3-5 times a week, over a span of 90 days. The revelations that followed were nothing short of astonishing:
Inflammation Vanquished - C-reactive Protein (CRP), a key blood marker for systemic inflammation, experienced a remarkable decrease. The most dramatic shift occurred within the initial 30 days, offering hope to those grappling with inflammation.
The Collagen Connection - Markers for collagen production, scientifically known as PICP, exhibited significant elevation. 3 Collagen, constituting 30% of your body's protein, forms the foundational structure, support, and strength for your skin, muscles, bones, and connective tissues.
Energizing Hormones - Serum Irisin Levels surged significantly, a hormone typically linked to High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). FasciaBlasting seems to give you a workout boost without the sweat!
Safety at Its Core -There were no indications of excessive strain on the body, reassuring us of the safety of using the FasciaBlaster.
Spot-Reduction Wonders - Subcutaneous fat measurements at the FasciaBlasted sites decreased significantly, highlighting the potential for targeted fat reduction. While overall body fat remained unchanged, this suggests that FasciaBlasting can work its magic where it matters most.
Farewell to Cellulite -The appearance of cellulite, dimples, and dents notably diminished, shedding light on its connection with the condition of the deep-seated fascia within the leg. This leads to further exploration into scar tissue, soft tissue, muscle definition, range of motion, and muscle pain
Collagen Reborn - Fascinating ultrasounds unveiled the rejuvenation of collagen, a process known as "remodeling." In simpler terms, it means regenerating and restoring collagen fibers to their native state. Remarkably, FasciaBlasting stands alone as the only non-invasive method known to achieve this outcome.
This illuminating study was meticulously planned and executed by the dedicated team at ASPI in Tampa, Florida. The resulting findings and conclusions underwent rigorous peer review before being published in the esteemed Cogent Medical Journal.
So, when you ponder the question, "What is FasciaBlasting?"—know that it's a scientific revelation, a journey that transcends traditional wellness practices, and a key to unlocking the secrets of your body's vitality, one blast at a time!
