Hi Tonia,

I am a long time lurker. I use the Fascia Blaster. I have been using it for the last month. I love it. There is a secret facebook group run by the creator. It's an amazing group. We share before and after pics, and tips. Everyone gets along so well.

Are you part of the group? If not, please check it out. Inbox me if you would like the link. There's 11,000 women all posting and loving the results. This is on par with the Dermaroller. In fact, it should be getting as much hype. This is legit. It works. It really, really does.

How are you liking the Fb thus far?

Annie, did you ever get the Facebook link?

Unfortunately, like everything, it's different for different people. Some see results immediately after the very first "blast". Most see significant results in 2-3 months. Still, others take longer. Of course, seeing results and being where you want to be are two very different things.

I have been blasting for 1 week. I have already seen a reduction in my muffin top. It actually feels different when I put my hands on my hips. 😊

I can't tell as much on my legs yet.

There is a protocol for migraines that is unbelievably good. I have drastically reduced the tension in my neck, back, and head, and I've had that for 10+ years.

to answer your question -
my only update is to say - the FB trims and tones your body - my skin is in no way perfect - but the definition of my musculature is way more pronounced.
Also - i'll reiterate - it has changed my workout - i mean to the point where i think I'm probably annoying a few people in my dance class 'cause i have so much energy - and by energy i mean stamina, strength, range of motion/agility - it's crazy... (to be clear and fair - i wasn't starting out overweight or inflexible or undisciplined - but there was a ceiling i hit in the past few years - the FB helped me break thru it)

it's amazing - Ashley black guru is a genius - what a gift she's given the human body!!

Hi Ladies

I bought the Octopus massager to try this out. It's avail on Amazon and looks exactly like one of the three circular massagers on the Fascia Blaster rod. I've done it a few times and am bruised, which according to all the women on their FaceBook page, is good. It sounds promising and I hope there are some true results. Will keep you updated, but I would suggest you try the octopus before spending the $89. It was $5 and worth it to give it a try and then if it works, I plan to upgrade to the real deal. Cellulite please be gone!

Some people on Facebook are saying they got theirs in a week and some are saying three weeks. The website is saying three weeks but I'd take that with a pinch of salt.
I think as long as you get it at some point that's the important part because it is really worth it. Maybe you could pay by credit card just for added security.

Hello all--I just wanted to comment on this tool because not only am I not getting the results I hoped for, but things are getting worse! Yes I know there is supposed to be a worse before better stage, but I have been doing this diligently for 3 months, following all instructions, and it is not getting better. In fact, I have cellulite in places where I never had it before, and not only that but I have these shadowy discolorations on my upper thighs where I had significant bruising and it will not completely go away. Even after not touching the area for 3 weeks. It's not the bruises themselves, either--they have healed and are not painful or anything--it looks like my legs are shadowy or even dirty. Anyone else experience this? Any ideas? I have soaked in Epsom slats and been dry brushing, it is not helping.

The second thing I want to address is that Ashley is not running an honest business. After I was in the facebook group for several weeks I started noticing that any and all critical posts were deleted--sometimes it took a few hours or even days but they would disappear. Occassionally I could see why, like if people were just criticizing without having used the tool. But some of the posts were from women who had been using this thing for almost a year and were stuck in the so-called 'worse before better' stage. For almost a YEAR. I saw other posts from women who were having my same issue with the lingering discoloration and others that just had questions about some of the science behind it--all deleted.

Then a woman posted a set of before and after pics of her face that looked edited--they just did. There was a huge difference in wrinkles around her mouth and it very much looked like a filter had been used on the after shot--or vaseline had been rubbed on the lens Laughing Anyway, many women including myself commented about how it was hard to believe they were legit, and not only were our comments deleted but we were blocked from the group. This was not for inflammatory speech or anything hateful, just the equivalent of saying something seems off here. Basically just a call out of what seemed to be clearly not realistic results from two weeks of rubbing your face with what is essentially a massage tool. I realized that if I and others got blocked from the group for something relatively benign and not at all trolling, then many many others had been blocked for actively saying they did not get results or believe in what Ashley is saying.

I left a negative review of the product on Ashley's page and guess what? My review got deleted as well a few days later! In the review I stated that I think this thing could work for some, but maybe not all as Ashley claims, and about the level of censorship occurring in what was supposed to be a facebook group of genuine feedback from honest users. I did not name call or say anything over the top, but she did not let it stand.

I just wanted to make you all aware of this aspect of this business and that no, this is not a foolproof method of getting rid of cellulite for everyone. All the amateur before & after pics became even more questionable to me in light of knowing how she does business. She is somehow scrubbing the internet clean of any discussion or criticism of this 'revolutionary' tool. In fact, this is the only independent forum I have found a discussion of it in at all over the entire internet. That alone makes me skeptical. I have been a member of these forums for many years and I have bought a number of things based on user reviews here. In general, however, I could also find other reviews and feedback in other forums as well when I was considering purchase of a new gadget. Not so with fasciablaster and I find that very surprising. If this thing did what she says it does and at the success rate she claims--and in only a few short weeks for most people, no less!--I think there would be all manner of outlets trumpeting it's value, but there isn't.

I think the fasciablaster could be a wonderful thing, but these shady practices from her business--coupled with super long shipping times and a lot of breakage with the product itself--could signify a business that is not to be trusted.

I will keep following along in hopes that some of you have more knowledge about using this tool than I have been able to find elsewhere. I want it to work, I really do, but I afraid to keep going Sad

Wonderful that your tissue damage isn't permanent, Rainbowrider.

I know you are very upset w/ the creator of the blaster. but want to say that it is common for many in the beauty regeneration field to tout their method as being 'perfect' for everyone and anyone who has no change or for who it is actually detrimental for must be doing something wrong.....either they are doing the technique wrong in some way(not done long enough, etc) or their diet is wrong, or something else about them is wrong and if it were corrected that particular gadget, facial exercise, massage technique, skincare regime would work for them the same way it works for others. But of course this is not necessarily the case.

The other thing that is almost universally said is that the 'uglies' are just a necessary passing stage to the beauty that will ultimately unfold once the ugly stage is over. This is also just not true for everyone. Sometimes the uglies just get worse and worse.

It seems important for everyone to know their own skin type and be firmly grounded in their their own truth/intuition/gut level feeling about any new beauty gadget, skincare regime, massage technique, etc experimented with.

Best to take it slow, IMO, and see/fee/intuit/ our own results rather than jumping on a bandwagon of positives (or negatives) which might not be true for us.

I totally understand your concern.
I have tried to search skin hanging off the bone but really cldnt find as much info as I would have liked....
I have seen women freaking out about it and they have been advised that it is just a phase and that they need to use weights.
I guess what happens is that although you may look like you've got muscle, it can actually be encased in bound fascia - so when you free up the fascia you no longer have the muscle tone and the skin hangs - no mind you my arms look very good mostly - but when I bend down to touch my toes or just lean over with my arms hanging and unflexed it's not pretty! BUT I am also 54 and it is just part of the aging process Sad so maybe it has nothing to do with FB....I dunno...
HOWEVER, I have started lifting weights for my arms and am seeing a slight improvement - i'm trying to remain really open minded about this being a process rather than thinking I have messed up my body - even if my arms never progress to a firmer state, I would do it all over again - the pay off is that good -
hope this helps some
also, I did request that Ashley have a thorough section on Skin Hanging Off the Bone in her new book (she asked people to weigh in on what they thought was essential for her new book)-

This thing sounds serious. My hubby thinks I am deranged for wanting one. Me too. I am a little bit afraid! Laughing


I fell for the marketing ploy. I bought the fascia blaster for pain purposes and every time I blast I get horrible pains and flu-like symptoms. They claim is the "detox" and to keep going but upon further looking into it, this tool can be potentially dangerous to people. I'd recommend you join her "exclusive" group and see for yourself the "results." People continually post BS claiming to have results in 2 weeks, 1 use, 2 uses, etc. just from blasting when if you critically review the pictures, the results are from losing weight, change in lighting and posing and many other factors. The group is highly monitored and posts are pre-approved so that nothing negative about the fascia blaster is said. They have kicked out people from the group from simply questioning the "results."
There are other secret groups with people who have been greatly affected by this device. Some with serious health issues. If it sounds too good to be true, maybe it is.

Im conducting an experiement with mine - which Ive had for ages but never used consistantly because of the bruises it leaves on my thighs. Now Im single Im going to do an A/B experiment- only doing the left side - legs, arms, tummy. Ill do it every day, in the shower (I put a hair mask on & use a really slippery body wash) & in a week Im going to take pics turning around so I can be sure if its the light or whatever. Ill update you all..I know a week isnt long but that will be 7 blasts.

One area I did today for the first time ever was my calves & lower legs & OMG it hurt. Especially down towards my achilles tendons (Im not going over them). Now I have had stiff painful tendons for ages & the only thing that works is Pures ligament Restore (expensive & stops working when you stop taking it) & ibuprofen. Today after that my left ankle was NOTICEBALY less sore & stiff. So my a/b experiment may have to stop as I want this on both ankles. I only did it for about 30 seconds & was fairly gentle so clearly theres something going on.

Also, a note re hormones. Cellulite is indeed hormone related, I believe that hormones affect connective tissue (stiffening it up) & of course collagen so Im using gelatin & am about to start taking Hyalauronic acid with collagen. My Pures ligament restore was supposed to be good for cellulite but working on the theory that these things go where they are needed Im guessing my poor ankles 'used up' all of the collagen in it - so Ive added gelatin powder (in smoothies & coffees) & collagen powder/whey powder (just to smoothies). Ive been taking the gelatin powder inconsistantly for a month or so & havent noticed anything so time to get serious - Ill let you know if it works.
