Benefits of Fascia Blasting
First Off, let's talk about "What Is Fascia".
The “fascia” is the spiderweb of tissue that holds your body together. It is very densely woven, covering every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, and vein. The connection with the veins is especially important if you suffer from varicose or spider veins.
The internal organs are well protected by the fascia including the heart, lungs, brain, and spinal cord. Most interestingly, there are no breaks in the fascial spiderweb. It is one continuous structure from head to toe without a single interruption. I like to think of the fascia as a sort of biological yarn, knitted together much like a sweater as a living fabric for the entire body.
When you feel stiff and cramped after a long period of sitting in the same position or when you wake up stiff in the morning, your normally flexible fascia are likely to blame. With inactivity, fascia can become “stuck,” causing discomfort. Over the years, many different therapies have been developed to alleviate pain or posture problems attributed to fascial stiffness. Massage and physical therapy and now fascia blasting can also help ease pain of this sort.
How Does a Fascia Blaster Work?
A fascia blaster is a device that is specifically designed to work on this aspect of the musculoskeletal system. The manufacturer suggests that regular use can produce the following results. And I can attest to that with those I have treated.
- Reduce cellulite
- Lessen pain
- Improve flexibility
- Promote circulation
- Increase joint function
- Enhance physical performance and nerve activity
