Fascia, which is primarily made up of collagen, is a band of connective tissue located right beneath the skin. It surrounds or “sheathes” muscles and other organs of the body. It serves to attach muscles, in particular, to bones affording them stability. Fascia also encloses and separates muscles and other vital organs from each other, thus, preventing adhesions. Fascia reduces the possibility of friction between muscle and some other muscle groups or bones, thereby, helping in the smooth movement of most body parts. And, by sheathing internal organs , it allows them to slide and move together inside of your body without the risk of injury secondary to scraping against adjacent structures . It also wraps around blood vessels and nerve fibers, providing for their strength and support as they travel through and around your body.
Fascia is quite sensitive to pain due to the fact that it is innervated by numerous sensory nerve endings.
Tenderness, aches and soreness are experienced when fascia loses its rigidity, or conversely, becomes overly stiff or taut and strained. A smooth and unrestricted movement of each muscle group is achieved only if there is a perfect balance of tension and elasticity within the fascial system. Fascial restriction consequently causes restriction in the groups of muscles eventually leading to pain and injury. Fascia may lose its ability to support the vital organs or fail to separate adjacent structures efficiently when trauma or inflammation occurs.
The development of cellulite, the dimpled skin texture (like that of an orange peel) often seen on the arms, thighs, hips and buttocks may also be determined by fascial resistance. When fibrous connective bands pull some parts of the skin downward, fat cells are accumulated between the bands causing dimpling. Some studies have shown that cellulite is brought about by some weakness in the skin and connective tissue.
Pain and dysfunction mostly come about due to tissue overload and substantial rigidity in the myofascial chain. Fascial manipulation and stimulation, therefore, is a most effective treatment for the relief of pain. This entails treatment, either purely manual or with the use of machines and tools, of the myofascial system. The aim of such treatment is the reduction of muscle strain and stiffness by restoring muscle tone and balance. The technique combines physical manipulation and pressure to ultimately loosen fascial tension.
The world has been raving about the fascia blasting technique as of late. The best reviews and testimonials about it have been circulating in the media. This technique makes use of a FASCIABLASTER, a self-massage myofascial tool designed by no less than the Fasciology Guru herself, Ashley Black. When massaged all over the body, an area at a time, it loosens up the fascia, resulting in the reduction of pain and cellulite.
Millions of FASCIABLASTER enthusiasts cannot get enough of the wonderful benefits derived from its regular use, some of which are:
- visibly reduced cellulite and prevention of new cellulite formation
- notably firmer skin
- significantly less muscle and joint pain
- better blood circulation with brighter skin and less frequent numbness in the extremities
If you want to lose those extra pounds and get rid of unsightly cellulite, would benefit from better circulation and mobility or relief from chronic discomfort and pain, give FASCIABLASTER a try. It may very well be what you’ve been looking for.
