I spent more than $600 on different items from this company in 2016. After I stopped using the fasciablaster, I gained weight especially on my waist and stomach but I failed to not connect the dots. At the beginning of October 2017 I came upon the Facebook group Fasciablasting Adverse Effects and read the stories of many women who  had experienced weight gain after "blasting." There were similar stories on Ashley Black's Facebook groups: Fasciablasters; Fasciablaster Official Open Forum; Master Blasters.

I found out that many more users had reported serious health and aesthetic issues from a device that was advertised as a safe "Class 1 Registered Medical device for HOME USE" (owner's own use of capitalization). Finally, I read a FDA inspection report that sheds a disquieting light on the fasciablaster and on the practices of the company that markets it. The FDA inspector especially confirms that the company did not follow up on customer complaints about negative results. [continued below]....

..... What the report does not say is that members of Ashley Black's Facebook groups who ask questions or report problems become the targets of rabid attacks from fellow members before being blocked from the forums. Some of them have received threats from a user calling himself Black Rhyno who is the head on Ashley Black's security firm.

A visit to Ms. Blacks website revealed that the protocols that came with my fasciablasters in 2016 had been replaced by more lenient ones and that there was a newly added list of contraindications discreetly tucked in the Terms of Use section. When I realized that the device was both dangerous and unhygenic I sent back my USED items and obtained a full refund of their purchase price even though the return period had closed a long time ago.

In her June 2016 rebuttal of the 03/24/16 Ripoff Report for the fasciablaster, the owner argues "We also have over HALF A MILLION followers and fans with 4.6 rating." I became a member of her Facebook Fasciablasters forum at the time and remember vividly that she was celebrating the fact that there were 75,000 members. As of today, October 21st 2017, she has 300,000 + Facebook users. The fact that the owner inflated her number of followers 6.66 times shows how credible she is. Of the current Facebook users, many have dropped off without bothering to cancel their membership. Many have requested or plan to request refund after finding out the truth about the fasciablaster.

These days, the owner still denies that people have experienced skin aging, weight gain, a worsening of cellulite and serious health issues from the use of her different fasciablaster products. Her major argument was that the fasciablaster was tested in an independent/double-blind/clinical study carried out by a third party. In fact, the research in question was a marketing-oriented study that she paid for out of pocket. Subjects were recruited by a casting agent who specializes in those weight loss makeover informercials that use fake Before After pictures. The casting advertisement  she posted on Facebook promised that participants would get "a free fascia blaster and personal blasting lessons from Ashley and her team."

I don't expect that readers of this testimonial will take my word for it. Please educate yourself and google "fascia Blaster" and "Ashley Black" before wasting your money and risking your health and/or youth on a pipe dream. If I can help prevent just one person from falling for this scam I will consider myself very happy.
