Fascia is the connective tissue that is present around each and every muscle, bone and internal organ. Fascia helps in supporting these body parts and is responsible for cramps and discomfort caused to the human body. Fascial stiffness leads to many posture problems and causes pain. Health departments are working tirelessly to address this issue and provide people with a solution. The tool fasciablaster has recently come up to help ease the pain. It is a white coloured plastic wand that has attachments similar to a claw attached to it. One needs to rub it on the skin where it hurts for three to five minutes every day.
How to use a fasciablaster?
- One should warm up their body by either taking a hot bath or using a heating pad.
- Next, apply oil on the area that hurts.
- Gently massage the area or body part with the fascia blaster for two to five minutes.
- Repeat on other body parts if required.
- Do remember to take lots of fluids after this.
