Ashley Black’s Stevie Awards
Of these extensive categories, Ashley Black won two Silver Stevie Awards. Under the Management Umbrella, she won the Lifetime Achievement Award in Consumer Products Industries and Woman of the Year.
“I am humbly honored to be recognized by the International Business Awards,” says Ashley Black. “It’s thrilling to see myself and all the women who won awards being recognized for their efforts. To see more and more women stepping into their power makes me happy,” Black adds. “I love the Stevie Awards. There are hundreds of judges voting from all over the world, with a number system. It’s not a popularity contest, we earn these awards. I am grateful.”
Judges of the 2022 International Business Awards were impressed by Ashley’s fight to overcome her diagnosis of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her experience inspired her to transform her weakness into a business. One judge even said, “Ashley Black has changed the world through her contributions to the non-invasive consumer medical devices industry.” They found her businesses’ increase in revenue, growth on social media channels and encouragement of other female entrepreneurs impressive. Black has expanded her successful DTC model to the UK, Europe and Australia, and launched a BTB partnership in Latin and South America. She also formed her training certification, Fascia Advancement Academy, which is exploding globally. Black says, “This was a nose to the grindstone year, with hyper-growth and new opportunities.”
The average scores of more than 300 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process in June and July determined the Stevie Awards winners.
“We’re thrilled that we’re able to return to celebrating Stevie winners in person this year,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Miller. “This year’s class of honorees are as innovative, adventuresome, persistent, and successful as we’ve ever had. We look forward to celebrating their achievements with them during our 15 October awards banquet in London.”

About Ashley Black
Ashley Black is a two-time #1 National Bestselling Author of The Cellulite Myth, and “BE…From Passion and Purpose to Product and Prosperity”. She co-authored the scientific paper “The Effects of Fascia manipulation with Fascia Devices on Myofascial Tissue, Subcutaneous Fat and Cellulite in Adult Women” and is the Inventor of the FasciaBlaster product suite of tissue regenerating tools.
After suffering from Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, a bone-eating infection, and a total hip replacement, she had no choice but to look for answers that would defy her medical prognosis of a life of pain management and debilitation. She discovered that limitations and pain in her body were due to thickening and scarring of fascia, the “sheets” of connective tissue that connect, penetrate, envelope, and surround every organ, joint, muscle, and system of the body. This contributed to the creation of a new field of science: Fasciology™ – the study of fascia. Since 1999 Ashley forged a career as a fascia authority with personal clients in pro sports and Hollywood.
The lack of tools to manipulate the fascia of her personal clients inspired her to invent the FasciaBlaster tools in 2014. She has invented 16 new tools as well as complimentary products and she is dedicated to helping the masses and making FasciaBlaster a household name. Her mission in life is to bring evidence-based body hacks to reverse aging and improve health naturally to market. Her motto is “if it doesn’t exist, invent it” which has led to her creating products that empower users to take care of themselves and teach her knowledge to progressive health care practitioners and healers. The world is listening and responding, and Ashley couldn’t be more thrilled about the shift. For more information www.AshleyBlackGuru.com.
