What is Fascia and Cellulite?

Cellulite has been around since ever, and we’ve all just figured that it’s something we must live with and that there’s not much we can do about these dents and dimples. While I’m all for loving your body, I also believe it’s important as women to empower ourselves to learn all that we can about our bodies and what makes us look and feel the way we do. The goal is not to achieve society’s “standards” of beauty and how women “should” look, but rather to learn how to feel confident and beautiful about the way you are and to feel happy in your own skin!

Society tells us that we should be a certain size or a certain way, and tells us that issues such as cellulite are because of fat, when really, that is not the issue at all!

Fascia is commonly known as the body’s connective tissue, but really, it’s so much more than that! Fascia is its own system that forms a network all over and throughout our bodies, affecting so much more than we can even imagine!!

For centuries, the medical community has discounted fascia as just a superficial connective tissue of little to no significance in terms of health, and much less aesthetics. What is taught in medical school today differs very little from this train of thought; however, thanks to recent scientific discovery, we now know that fascia is no more superficial than it is insignificant. On the contrary, fascia is our internal environment–it contains all our cells and provides them what they need to function.

You may be asking “what is fascia, and why did she even bring it up when this blog is supposed to be about cellulite?” Well, guess what!? The root cause of the appearance of cellulite is fascial recoil!!!

At the point when belt is tight, it pulls down on the fascial sheath underneath the skin. Fascial adhesions look like a chain link fence. When fat is present, it pushes through the fascia like a marshmallow pushing through a chain link fence. This causes a dimpled and puckered effect — a.k.a that icky word — cellulite!

So, you’re probably thinking “Ok, so fascia is the culprit…. now what!?” Don’t worry, you don’t have to come up with a solution because I already did! While testing, and trying out different tools for treating fascia, I came up with the idea for the FasciaBlaster®! I tried everything that didn’t work and pulled from many different schools of thought to finally create something that does!

The FasciaBlaster® breaks through the fascia to loosen and restore it, rendering your skin smooth, healthy & “cellulite free”! Obviously, this is not a “magic wand” or an overnight process, but it’s a journey to overall wellness and healthy fascia. The results you’ll experience go much further than getting rid of cellulite! As blood races to your skin expanding your dissemination, empowering your muscle filaments and smoothing out that crumpled, lumpy fascia, you will experience increased range of motion, enhanced muscle output, not to mention getting rid of aches and pains and increasing your overall quality of life! It’s incredible, but we’ll save that for another blog.
