Manhasset Press Profiles Blast Spa Owner Maria Gioino, exploring how and why this 27 year hairdresser veteran got into the fitness industry.
“About six years ago I started developing severe arthritis in my knees and I was going through cortisone shots every couple of months,” said Gioino, explaining how she got into fascia blaster treatments. “I’m a hairdresser, so I’m on my legs a lot. One of my friends told me about this thing called the Fascia Blaster. Ashley Black invented this device that you use to release the bound fascia in your body. Everybody has this layer of fascia between their skin and their muscle tissue and sometimes fat cells get stuck to it and block off circulation. I started using the fascia blaster on my knees and it opened up the circulation and allowed my knees to heel.”
The article delves into the extensive facilities, classes and treatments available at Blast Spa & Fitness, while talking to Maria about her goals and ambitions for the new facility. “This is a unique fusion of a spa and a gym so you can come in do a fitness class, then sit in the sauna for an hour and then get your hair blown out,” said Gioino. “We also have a very unique reward program so everyone here gets 10 percent back in rewards and they can use it toward anything.”
