With over 2 decades of professional experience helping Olympians, Famous Professional Athletes, and Hollywood Celebrities with their fascia care, Ashley has certainly proven herself as an accomplished professional, pioneer and expert in the field. As a dynamic, results-driven leader, Ashley has demonstrated success not only as the Founder for the myofascial tool, the FasciaBlaster®, which became one of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies, but she is also an International Speaker and Bestselling Author who’s story has touched the lives of millions of people worldwide.
Ashley was born in a small town in Alabama in 1973 and at a young age she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. She spent her youth in and out of doctor’s offices and was told she would need a wheelchair by age 25. Determined this would not be her fate, Ashley developed her own coping mechanisms to control her flare ups and came up with her own effective ways to deal with her pain management. Using herself as a guinea pig, Ashley discovered that the structural limitations in her body that were causing her intense pain were due to constrictions in the “sheets” of connective tissue-fascia-that connect, penetrate, envelope, and surround every organ, joint, muscle, and system of the body. Utilizing her personal experience, experimentation's, research and sheer will, Black developed a fusion of soft tissue therapy, fascia stretching, body mechanics, and core activation techniques to bring a holistic approach to wellness, sports performance, and recovery. Her original insights contributed to the creation of a new realm of science: Fasciology.
Ashley’s impressive repertoire of clientele who have followed her inventive methods, have included professional athletes in the NBA, PGA, NHL, MLB, Olympians, Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winners. Ashley became the “go to” girl for helping people take care of their bodies naturally and in a new way. Ashley since then, has developed new tools and auxiliary products, and has sold over a million products worldwide.
Aside from her successful business Ashley is also a Bestselling Author, and sought after lecturer and global speaker. Her book “The Cellulite Myth: It’s Not Fat It’s Fascia” debuted at #1 beating out The Girl on the Train when the movie was in theaters. Ashley has been an invited speaker at medical conferences and has presented her incredible evidence-based findings around the world in order to spread the gospel of Fasciology. Her work has also been published by several major conferences and presented at the International NSCA Conference in Madrid, Spain and had the opportunity to share this knowledge on the TEDx stage. Ashley was also the host of Billionaire HealthCare for VoiceAmerica, was a Career Coach for the University of Houston, and former Owner of TANK (Training Athletes Neuro Kinetically). Recently, Ashley co-authored a landmark study which revealed that the FasciaBlaster® tools restored cellulite and remodeled the body’s underlying fibrotic tissue. These are key findings that her FasciaBlaster® tools provide hope for a host of medical issues.
Ashley attended Auburn University for Engineering and was a gymnast and Captain of Tiger Paws, the University’s Dance Team. The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “Choosing Ashley for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make. She is brilliant at what she does and contributed so much of her wisdom and passion to help people all over the globe. She is humble, gracious and we felt she would make an amazing asset to our organization. We are looking forward to meeting her at the gala and know we will be seeing more amazing things from this incredible woman.”
Throughout her illustrious career Ashley has received awards, accolades and has been recognized worldwide for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the profession. For 2019 she is being considered for a feature in TIP (Top Industry Professional) Magazine and for the Empowered Woman Award. Also for 2019, she was selected as Top Inventor and Business Innovator of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) and she will be honored at their Annual Awards Gala at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. In 2016, she was a Nominee for Inventor of the Year for the FasciaBlaster by USPTO.
Looking back, Ashley attributes her success to her perseverance, mentors she has had along the way, and staying passionate in all her business endeavors. When not working, she enjoys traveling, and spending time with her family. For the future, she hopes to continue to motivate, inspire, and educate every man, woman and child on this planet to understand their fascia and learn how to live a better quality life.
