Have you heard about the Fascia Blaster from Ashley Black? Do you know what Fascia is? I was a little familiar with fascia, but never really connected to the importance of what this connective tissue does until I was in pain after running or leaving one of my favorite classes. Thanks to Ashley Black's knowledge of how to take care of your fascia there' no longer a need to tolerate the pain. I have attached a video of how I use the Master Blaster on different body parts. I love Ashley's attitude, she wants us to know & understand our body and by doing so we can empower ourselves to take charge of how to live pain-free. Thank you, Ashley! I am so happy with my results. See Video Below.
Here' a great description from Ashley; For those of you who are visual learners, you can imagine your skin is like the rind of an orange. So, if your skin is the outer layer of the orange peel, the thicker, white, fibrous layer that lies almost immediately beneath the peel would be your fascia. Just as that thicker layer completely surrounds the inside of the orange, the same holds true to your fascia. We all have a layer of fascia directly beneath the skin that completely envelopes the body, giving another protective barrier between the skin and the deeper soft tissue. Don't forget to use oil on your skin before you begin!
If you suffer from migraines be sure to check out Ashley's video on how to use the Face Blaster for your headaches.
GIVEAWAY OF THE NEW MASTER BLASTER!
The Master Blaster address the peripheral layers of fascia and smooths out layer by layer of fascial adhesions and distortions. The tiny claws aid in more effectively bringing blood flow to the surface, addressing sensitive areas, and prepping the tissue for deeper treatment.
Signs and Symptoms of IT Band Syndrome (ITBS):
- Pain on the outside of the knee
- Tightness of the ITB (iliotibial band)
- Pain normally occurs during running, especially downhill
- Pain during bending or straightening of the knee that worsens by applying direct pressure to the side of the knee over the sore part
- Weakness in hip movement
- Tender trigger points in the hamstring and gluteal (buttocks) areas
- You can go to Ashley's FAQs page for full details
- For those of you who love science, (I certainly do) studies have shown that the body stores emotions and memories within the fascia. Yes, it's a wide topic but you might feel strong emotions or uncover memories during or after.
