Enhance Performance and Recovery with Body Tempering

What is Body Tempering?

Body Tempering uses heavy tools (typically heavy cylinders) to give you a deep tissue massage. The weight of these cylinders can range from 5 pounds to 300 pounds. It is similar to foam rolling only you are not laying on the roller, the roller is laying on you. One of the great benefits of this reversal is that you don’t have to twist into uncomfortable positions to hit those hard-to-reach spots, we do all of the work for you. And, while Body Tempering is more intense than foam rolling it is not as painful. This is because the weight is distributed over the surface area of the tool which allows the body to ease into the pressure.

Body Tempering Tools are designed to:

  • improve range of motion
  • increase flexibility
  • reduce soreness
  • mobilize the myofascial layers
  • address trigger points (or tender points)
  • strengthen tendons
  • alter sympathetic nervous system excitation.

It is a fundamental part of numerous professional and high-level athletic programs. These include the NCAA football Champion Clemson Tigers, The MLB World Series Champs Kansas City Royals, The NCAA Women’s Basketball National Champion UCONN Huskies, The NFL Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles, and Gold Medal Olympic Shot-putters and Swimmers.

It’s designed to reduce tone leading to sprains/strains, open up range of motion and improve flexibility/mobility to achieve ideal positioning for training.

It is also designed to reduce feelings of fatigue to lengthen work out time and reduce soreness to enhance future training sessions.

The following article which was written by Osteopathic physicians does a great job of explaining the mechanisms in Body Tempering:

The article is a little heady so, in case you don’t want to read the whole article, here are some interesting points:

BT has been shown clinically to be beneficial for athletes, as it provides an alternative to traditional stretching, foam rolling, and deep tissue mobilization to facilitate repair of muscle strains, improve soft tissue extensibility, and reduce pain.

BT appears to help prepare soft tissue for activity and improve muscle recovery, with longer-lasting results than static stretching, massage, or other soft tissue interventions.

BT may be used to target and release painful myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) and fascial perforation, points where there is compression of nerves and vascular structures.

If Body Tempering is something that you would like to try, we offer it as a stand alone session or as part of a bodywork session at our Denver location. Please contact Josh Sebring at our Denver location if you have any questions.


Wear comfortable, easy-to-move-in clothing. Close-fitting clothing or sports bras are preferred for structural analysis, and treatments are performed clothed.

Cancellations within 24 hours are charged 50% of the session price.

No. We cannot diagnose. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis.

We can and do use orthopedic testing to determine if bodywork is recommended for your issue. If we find that the test we perform is a positive then we may recommend that you go to a medical practitioner for a diagnosis.

Since every one of our therapists is an independent contractor we allow each therapist to decide whether they require credit card information to hold an appointment.

If the therapist does require credit card information to hold the appointment then that therapist will contact you to get that information so that they can put it securely in Square. Your card will not be charged and no amount will be held for the appointment.

If you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment or do not show up for the appointment then half of the price of the session will be charged to the card on file. Thank you for your understanding and please call us with any questions.

Body Heal Therapy is a holistic approach to pain relief. Since the human body moves as a unit, rather than in individual pieces, we often compromise for repetitive patterns and postures with unrelenting tension in other areas that can cause pain. By addressing these patterns, we can go beyond providing temporary help to the area causing discomfort, and instead, treat the root cause with lasting results.
