Body Tempering

Chiropractic Davenport IA Body Tempering

Body Tempering

Is a myofascial release (massage) methodology developed by one of the largest and strongest men in the world - Donnie Thompson. Besides being a famous powerlifter and the first human to lift 3,000 pounds total in the squat, bench press, and deadlift, Donnie is also a world-renowned rehab specialist sought-after by countless athletes in different sports and disciplines. Why? Because he came up with a method that allows for the traditional effects of a time-intensive, hands-on deep-tissue massage in a drastically shorter time.


So how does it work?

Quite simple, it’s a weighted device (In our office we utilize 4.5 lbs. - 115 lbs.) which allows for pressure to be placed on a specific area via the contoured ends and modulated by either pushing against the implement or resisting it. Additionally, the implement can also be used to both put pressure against the skin and twisted to provide a shearing effect to the tissue and fascia.


Bodywork technique

Body tempering is a bodywork technique that uses devices called diffusion rods to "break up" adhesive muscle and tissue. The goal is to increase pliability which results in an increase in mobility, strength, range of motion and pain reduction. This improves tissue healing and quality of the soft tissues.

Can help an individual recover form a "hard" training session, help to prevent injuries and enhance athletic performance.
