Anthony Chrisco, BS, ACE, NASM PES, is a Founding Member of the Fascia Research Society, a seasoned certified personal trainer, continuing education provider, co-owner and President of The Fascianator. For two decades, Anthony has dedicated himself to helping people improve physically. The first ten years were more about fitness training, education, and helping all types of people reach their fitness goals. He worked with professionals and people just getting into fitness alike, making sure that everyone had a supportive, knowledgable, and capable trainer available to them. His overall dedication to wellness is what inspired his research into fascia. To provide people with complete care and to improve his clients further, Anthony wanted to create a way to use the healing properties of fascia, which is throughout the body. He developed, trademarked, and teaches The Fascianation Method to professionals and practitioners of yoga, physical therapy, personal training, and athletic training, and he also makes it possible for his clients to heal from home, too, thanks to the self-myofascial release process. Anthony authored and teaches continuing education courses approved by the American Council on Exercise and the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He was a keynote speaker at the 2013 State Conference of the National Strength and Conditioning Association in Idaho, and is a regular presenter at the Sjogren’s and Lupus Foundation of Hawaii. Anthony enjoys speaking about fascia to organziations around the nation.
In 2015, he attended the first Joint Conference on Fascia, Cancer and Acupuncture at Harvard Medical School. This was the first conference linking stiff fascia with the development of cancer. This new research has the potential to change EVERYTHING about how to prevent cancer from developing. He had the opportunity to share his experience using the Fascianator and the science that these pioneers discovered about fascia and he extremely well received by these amazing doctors and scientists! This is proof positive that the Fascianator and Fascianation Method are safe and effective means of pain management by decreasing inflammation which can help us prevent cancer!
Eileen Paulo-Chrisco is an author, a Founding Member of the Fascia Research Society, ACE certified personal trainer, NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist, ACE Group Fitness Instructor, co-owner and Chief of Operations for The Fascianator. She thrives on helping people feel healthier and learning the causes and prevention strategies for today’s common health problems.
Eileen has been a certified personal trainer for 13 years and has 20 years of biomedical and pharmaceutical research experience in both the academic and industry settings. At California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute under pioneering breast cancer researchers, Eileen isolated, maintained, and manipulated human cells from live tissue for the development of biological testing systems to understand critical events in the early progression of breast cancer. Some of her work is published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and was utilized in the telomerase research of Nobel Laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn. At Berlex Biosciences (now Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals) Eileen’s expertise supported the protein expression and pharmacology cores to assist Berlex’ cardiovascular, immunology, and cancer research efforts. At Skai Ventures, a technology accelerator, Eileen developed cell-based experiments for the development of a bioengineered cornea and for bio-defense applications. Throughout her journey manipulating environments and optimizing growth conditions, Eileen gained invaluable insight on the importance of the nutrient absorption, elimination of cellular waste, connective tissue and extracellular matrix tension, and the effect of microenvironment imbalances on the whole system. Her expertise in maintaining functional and healthy tissues in the lab became the driver for Eileen to follow Anthony’s mission of “rolling people out” for total body care. Eileen joined Anthony full-time to teach people how to create the neutrality of the environments in the body so that the body will do what it was designed to do; heal itself.
Anthony and Eileen each have about 20 years dedicated to fascia research and learning how to improve the body; collectively they dedicated 40 years. Their dedication and knowledge shine bright with the life-changing experience of those who use The Fascianator and The Fascianation Method.
