Have you seen the new tool that everyone, even the Kardashian’s are talking about? You can find pics all over Instagram feed—particularly from the fit social influencers who make you feel guilty for skipping the gym—and have felt even slightly interest? If so, it’s not just you. That tool is the Fascia Blaster ($89; fasciablaster.com and developed by Ashley Black), and just seeing the before and after shots more predominant than Kardashian-Jenner selfies, it can make some pretty dramatic changes when it comes to reducing the appearance of cellulite. Before we started using the tool to add to our repoitoire we had to understand what exactly the Fascia Blaster does, and research its creator Ashley Black. The key question that I have been answering clients for years, is what exactly is fascia? “Fascia is the body’s connective tissue, and it’s everywhere. It runs from head-to-toe, fingertip-to-fingertip, and all throughout,” she explains. “It provides a framework that helps support and protect individual muscle groups, organs, and the entire body as a unit.” She designed it around many, many health benefits of working on the Fascia. The unknown importance of Fascia is incredible. It runs site wide through everyone’s body and bears a pretty strong resemblance to spiderwebs underneath the skin, though there are four different types; structural fascia on the surface level, interstructural throughout the structures and organs, visceral, which fills in cavities and helps keep organs in place, and spinal fascia around the spinal cord.
