The best way to understand the Fascia Blaster is to first understand, what is Fascia? The word fascia is Latin, meaning “band”. Fascia is connective tissue, this tissue is in bands across the body. Connective tissue or Fascia is mainly comprised of collagen and/or collagen fibers. Collagen is a protein and there are 28 different types, but the type of collagen we will focus on is the Type I, skin and tendon. Collagen is naturally occurring and valuable to beneficial in all facets of healing a wound. To briefly recap, collagen is the major component and/or ingredient of the Fascia.

Purpose: To restore blood flow to the muscles and organs of the body previously restricted by fascia. (fascia is the connective tissues that surrounds muscles and organs of the body under the skin.) This restriction can reduce the circulation to the area. It can cause adhesions that manifest as knots and the fibers of the tissues can stick together resulting in restricted movement. This can cause your body to cover the area with collagen and create hard scar tissues. The fascia blaster treatment will help break down the fascia and restore blood flow, increase the release of toxins trapped in the body which result in the fascia restricting the muscles, and organs that the fascia surrounds. It helps to release muscle tension and stretches the constricted muscles. This results in increased performance, and has an affect on the parasympathetic, nervous system and lymph vascular system.
