Fascia Blaster

Fascia is the sheath of connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, bones and internal organs. A Fascia Blaster is a white plastic wand with claw-like attachments. Fascia blasting entails warming up with about 10-15 minutes of low-impact cardio and then having a hot shower, bath, sauna or heating pad. Heat increases circulation and makes the fascia more receptive. Blaster oil is then applied to help burn fat and reduce cellulite. The Fascia Blaster is then rubbed over the skin in every direction. The treatment rolls away cellulite and eases muscle pain.

Ideal candidates want to release adhesions and restrictions in the fascia, reduce cellulite and speed up muscle recovery. Patients suffering from auto-immune diseases, a blood clot disorder, a recent cancer diagnosis (within the past 5 years) or diabetes are not good candidates. Patients that have just undergone a surgical procedure should wait a minimum of 12 weeks before having the treatment. 

The cost of a Fascia Blaster procedure depends on the surgeon's level of expertise, the geographic location of the procedure and any fees charged by the physician or the facility. In general, the cost ranges from $100-$150 per treatment.

The procedure improves blood flow, reduces muscle pain and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Just like with any physically exerting procedure, ice baths and cold packs can be used as a recovery method. The patient can also undergo flushing after the procedure to improve circulation and stimulate the lymphatic system to help improve the recovery. The muscles are then activated resulting in a smooth and toned look. The procedure has to be done 2-3 times a week consecutively to maintain the results.
