Let me start off by letting you know I do really like Ashley Black and I love the FasciaBlaster. But this book is terrible. I was hoping for education and real scientific evidence presented but that is not what this book is. I bought a large Ashley Black advertisement. That is all this is and a poorly written one at that. All this information has been presented before on her website and fb group. She kept mentioning topics that would be good for other books and did not expand further. It was exh ...more

I have to say, I'm kind of disappointed. Like some other reviewers, I was hoping this book would primarily focus on the health and science behind cellulite and fascia, as well as a variety of (non-partisan) suggestions for dealing with them. While I did learn some interesting things about fascia in the beginning of the book, it quickly shifted to sounding like an infomercial for Ashley Black's products and then again to an instructional manual for the FasciaBlaster. While I'm not doubting the te ...more

Very basic first grade reading level with very useful medical info. Author repeats herself many times and overuses hashtags inappropriately. This book is a big ad for her non-FDA approved, non peer reviewed products.

Interesting information on fascia, but I don't quite feel I can trust this method. The author claims to have worked on many 'famous' people, but who they are remains a mystery. I was completely in love with the idea of healing and changing my body with Ashley's tool, there are certainly lots of success stories out there. But dig a little deeper and you'll find there are many women claiming that 'blasting' has in fact damaged their bodies. I must admit that the focus on cellulite in the blasting ...more

I came across this at the library, but I really can't rate it. This non-review won't be helpful.
Thumbs up for the fascia information. I didn't know any of this. The author is exceptionally upbeat.
Thumbs down because it reads like an infomercial script with testimonials and directs the reader to the authors Facebook page for more. And the fact that the cellulite scrubber apparatus is painful and leaves one bruised is another negative for me. Plus it's expensive.
I've read the goodreads reviews, ei

I believe that if Ashley Black really cared about women's health the Fasciablaster would be BPA free. I bought into all of this and "cured" my cellulite. But then I had to take a three month break due to a surgery, and it came back, and mine came back worse. So everyone using this is making a lifelong commitment.

There are two things that keep me from ever blasting again:

1. When it was revealed that there is BPA in the blaster and you are encouraged to heat it up in a sauna and rake it across you

The author is lost in the multitude of messages she is trying to deliver, while talking to her audience like a bunch of three-year olds: the glory of God, her place in the Universe, the female empowerment, etc. Oh, right. I forgot the cellulite, of course. The whole message could be delivered in one- two paragraphs. A chapter, at most. Too many unnecessary words that carry no information whatsoever. What. A. Waste.

Was hoping for some scientific evidence on fascia but seemed to be more geared towards the tool the author sells.

Seemed logical and I purchased the product based on the book. Terrible results and returned product. I'm sorry I believed the hype.

When I read this book I lost all respect for the publisher. Why did they allow this poorly written draft to go to print? Contents, structure, language... everything still needs a lot of reworking. As a matter of fact, this is not a genuine self-help book. It is 1/a user's manual padded with useless fluff. 2/a disguised advertisement for Ms. Black's massage tool, the Fasciablaster. As far as goal#1 is concerned, the book is obsolete. Most of the techniques and protocols it recommends have been re ...more

Shelves: self-help, health
This was exactly what I thought it would be--a long-form advertisement for Ashley Black's "FasciaBlaster" tool. She goes into the fascia a little at the beginning (which was all pretty new to me so that was interesting) but it's either not well-researched as a subject or she fails to really cite the research. Then the book turns into a long ad for her company, oils, tools, etc. I continued to read hoping it would get better but it didn't. If I had bought the tool and wanted help using it the boo ...more

I give 4 stars to the information in this book and 2 stars to how it’s presented. I was annoyed by the”voice” of the author that at times seemed conceited and patronizing. It was like she thought she was literally heaven sent and no one (especially not a regular woman like us readers) could understand things at her level. She had to dumb it down for us to understand it. And if I could’ve counted how many times she mentioned something about the information being for “another book” it would’ve bee ...more

I'm giving it a 5 for the product

I recently bought the Fascia Blaster and I'm ADDICTED. I've Already seen changes on my body that I didn't think were possible. The only thing I would say negatively is I feel like the author was a little to into themselves. I'm all for self praise... but at times it got a little much. There's only so many times I can here about how amazing you think you are....

That and having her talk about all the books she COULD write. I feel like if I counted she'd consider he

Love this book

I love how Ashley puts things in layman's terms & makes it fun to read about something that could otherwise be very boring. I got the fascia blaster & within a week have found relief from my trigger thumb that I've have for over a month. My neck is feeling less tight as well. I'm looking forward to seeing even more results with this tool.

Fascinating! The title is deceiving, this book is SO MUCH MORE than about cellulite. The author is trying to sell to women with this title, but it’s for anyone and everyone that deals with pain. Cellulite is just a plus. I would highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with inflammation issues, or any other pain.

Ashley Black is the real thing

This book is very informative and life changing. I always thought I would just have to live with the pain trying to avoid surgery like the plaque. Now I know there's hope out there. Everything is baby steps and I am ready to challenge my fascia to the biggest event changer of my life. Bring on the blast

Love, Love, Love Ashley Black. I've been a faithful "blaster sister" for over a year now and love the information Ashley shares in this book. While I'm not quite the "science geek" she is, I do appreciate understanding the science behind her techniques.

Can't wait for the new products. I'll be first online!

Beginners guide to fascia.

Great refresher of fascia for me. I learned about it in massage therapy school but i loves the detail. I have a fascia blaster and already am showing results and i am having less pain in my hips daily. It really works!!

This blasting stuff is a miracle.

Drink the kool-aid. Fixing your fascia will fix your body. This book tells you the how, the why, and the what. Read Ashley’s story at the very end first. You will be blown away. Highly motivational.

Makes so much sense. Truly written for us all to understand and to teach us how we can fix our cellulite! Great job!!

I own almost all of the FasciaBlasters offered by Ashley Black's company and reading this book made so much sense. It helped me to realize that I am in control of how my body looks and feels.

Must read for Fascia Blasters...very informative in a fun and caring tone that is Ashley Black's personality.

I did not finish this book completely but I read Black's theories. They make sense to an extent, I'm interested to see if her theories pick up more in mainstream science.

This book was "real world language" for fascia. There was a lot of referencing back to her products, but that was the point of the book.

This book reads like Ashley is sitting across the table from you explaining the missing link to your health and wellbeing. I have watched all of her videos and read all of her blogs but the book is a one stop shop for information. I look forward to reading future books written by this pair. I really appreciated the referencing to her web information to gain further insight. The only drawback in my opinion was everything being in black and white I think many of the photos would have been more pow ...more

Ashley is wonderful, and I am a faithful fasciablaster. I don't think I learned anything new in this book that can be found by reading her blog, researching the website or watching her videos. The best part of the book is Ashley's personal story and should have been the first chapter.
