IASTM, or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization 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 period of time. Read more further below... Watch videos on the Boomstick and IASTM via the image link above and check out this introduction to tempering and self-use video:
What if you could get the same effects of a 60 minute deep-tissue massage in only 5 minutes? This sounds like a gimmicky tag-line that's too good to be true, right?
So how does it work? Quite simple actually, it's a weighted device (22lbs) 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 knurled middle part of 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.
Thousands of our Boomsticks have been purchased by athletes around the world - enabling them to spend less time on body maintenance and more time training or competing. We've also seen many massage practitioners implement this tool and technique as a way of increasing both the effectiveness of their work and the amount of work they can do at a given time.
The best part? You don't have to be an athlete, coach, or massage therapist to use this tool. It's friendly enough to be used by anyone, either on themselves as the subject or on another person. We provide video tutorials displaying the use of the Boomstick as well as other resources for proper use of the tool and method.
Alright then, maybe you're sold on it. But isn't it just a shiny and smooth piece of steel? Why does it cost as much as it does? Unfortunately the cost of raw steel and having it professionally milled is quite steep, if you don't believe us feel free to go to a metal fabricator and ask how much a Boomstick would cost as a one-off piece? Let's just say it's going to cost quite a bit more than our price. Besides this, you are not just paying for the tool itself, but the knowledge that comes along with the IASTM method as well as content that we are continuously producing and releasing for our audience and customers.
