Disappointed in the book, the product, and Miss Blacks conduct regarding people having health issues related to using the product and protocol she touts in this book. I have never experienced such underhanded dealings by a marketer and promoter of a product, because ultimately that is what Miss Black is, as well, as a self-professed guru.
Never in my wildest imagination when I bought her product did I have any indication that I was, in fact, a product tester and paid for that privilege as well. The protocols for using the device were not clear, contraindications few (other than if you had clotting issues) and it was obvious that Miss Black herself was unaware of the potential good as well as damage that this protocol she promotes in this book could do. I watched as many women began to come forward with legitimate questions about issues they were having and were systematically removed from her page and group or attacked by loyal fans.
Then in the last few months (October -March 2017) after a year of watching differing opinions and protocols unfold I watched as suddenly the protocol was changed, but for many, it was to late. Sudden blood clots where no previous history of any problems began to pop up. "Fascia" or cellulite that looked good suddenly going from bad to great to worse than before even starting to "blast" and no amount of scrubbing, we are talking months and months, was going to get it to where it was, not even to where it was before. Women with liver problems, and blood tests that showed abnormal values in those tests,"bloating" that never went away, we are talking months of "detox" scary stuff, all swept under the rug or hidden or somewhat off-handedly handled by her "team" with drink more water, but mostly the consensus was "get em out of here" and they did.
Miss Black jumped on every trend her testers came up with. Use it on your face? she developed a face one. There again the protocol started out one way and then suddenly women began coming forward saying "I did what so and so showed and look at my neck/jowls/forehead now? and as usual they were told to keep going it gets better , but they were damaging some of the most delicate tissue on the body and it wasn't going to get better. Then suddenly the face protocol changed too. Softer and more careful...well duh. But again for some, the damage was done. Ashley Black did not invent "the process" of breaking up fascial adhesions, she did not invent the nugget, she based this product on the octopus massage (and very well) she is no guru, she was learning along with the rest of us the good and the bad of this product. It really upsets me that myself as well as others were product testers and treated shabbily for speaking out about our issues which she then incorporated into her protocols.
Of course, this book was on the best-seller list even prior to being released, Miss Black offered a very generous promotion to her then just over 100k group of being entered into a lottery for one of her products (worth about ten times the price of this book) she gave away a prize daily if you bought the book and entered the drawing and boy did they take her up on it! Many of the five-star ratings are from the same call to arms. Not exactly above board, I would think, because usually you are supposed to put a disclaimer when you post a review because you got a discount or something in return, but hey that is marketing?
I fully expect this unbiased and truthful review to be attacked by the same +200k women about how wrong I am and how great Ashley Black is, initially I thought so too. Until I was banned for speaking up and on behalf of women who had questions.
