Geisha Roller [X-Wife]


  • Please allow 2-3 weeks for manufacturing and shipping.



The Geisha roller is similar to the X-Wife and was developed in concert with Donnie to bring a shippable version to market with improved features. 


Improved Features include:


  • Center relief for Spinous Process!
  • Internal Handles for improved ease and SAFETY in handling!
  • Doesn't require truck and trip to a specialty steel yard!
  • Reduced Cost!
  • Control of final weight!




  • Spending an additional $3.60 on a bag of concrete (available at any home improvement store)
  • Mixing concrete and waiting a couple of days to cure (comes with instructions)

The standard weight is the same as the X-Wife at 130lbs.  But it can be reduced by putting in less concrete if you chose or increased by dropping in scrap steel or weights into the roller before adding the concrete.  Final weight can be set from 32lbs-250lbs!


NOTE:  If you are looking at having one made we can provide you the print for having either a fabricated one done, or a solid steel one with the center relief and handles we can provide you a print.  But be warned that a one-off unit of either type is likely going to run you over $500 even if it is your buddy's machine shop.

    Theory behind Body Tempering

    Body Tempering was developed by Donnie Thompson in August of 2014.  It started as a mistake and just kept growing.  We were hearing of great athletes succumbing to hernia surgeries due to severe muscle adhesions.  That is something we never wanted.  There was no way we were getting on the floor and flopping around on foam rollers.  We used KettleBells to diffuse abs and quads for years.  PCV pipe too.  These were very useful and worked well.  Then one day, Levi the Fireman was lying on the floor rolling his abs with a KB.  Donnie jokingly told him he would put the X-Wife (a 135lb steel cylinder) on him to roll his stomach out (the X-Wife was and is a drop cut piece of solid steel, 5 inches in diameter and 24 inches long and 135lbs).  So with the X-Wife on Levi's stomach, he commenced to rolling it over his entire upper body.  He loved it.  So Donnie went next.  Then Joe, then Josh and then everyone else.  


    This led to us trying it on our backs.  Then the backs of the legs.  Then chest and shoulders. And finally, the Calves!  It was brutal but it worked.  We all but stopped stretching prior to training.  If we missed a day, we got so addicted to being rolled that we started doing it everyday.  It never got to be too much.  We were all getting stronger and feeling better.  By October, two NFL Centers were using it daily and right before the games on Sunday! 


    Simply put, the X-Wife diffuses (Dispersal) tissue and its crushing weight relieves tightness involving fascia, muscle, veins, organs and nerves. They aid in ridding toxins (toxins are strongly acidic, metabolic waste and molecules associated with inflammation but not limited to)  specifically from the fascia, veins and nerve encasements.  Like a rolling pin kneading dough.  Body Tempering is the fastest way to feel good again. Trigger points and muscle adhesions cannot hold up to the method.  Nothing in the world even comes close to doing what the X-Wife can perform in seconds.

      We can, but due to the weight of the roller it has to be through UPS.

    • hi question regarding geisha can i partially fill it with concrete and just keep filling up more as my body gets used to the weight?

      This is not something we would recommend.  Wet concrete will not adhere well to concrete that is already dry.  The only way this might work is if you were to use rebar within the Geisha, so the concrete would have something else with which to bind.  However, that being said, your body is extremely adaptable.  What may feel heavy at first, won't feel as heavy a week from now.  Also, a lot of people have filled the Geisha to the recommended level and then just used half of it on certain body parts, by leaving one side on the floor while rolling the other side over the part they want worked.  Hope this helps!

    • What’s the tubes diameter and length

      The diameter of the Geisha roller is 8 inches and the length is 26 inches.  

    • For someone on the smaller side (~180) pounds would you recommend the full 130lbs?

      The answer for this is specifi to the individual, as I've met large people who can't take very much pressure and smaller people who can take quite a lot. It all depends on your individual tolerance and how you plan to use it. 

    • Hi, I purchased this product (geisha/exwife). How do I fill it? I seem to have missed the instructions. Thanks

      The Geisha is designed to be filled with cement on both sides to add additional weight. 

    • Do you have any of the other sizes available? Or do you know where to go to buy

      Only 1 size is available, and keep in mind the weight can be varied by the amount of cement (or other filler) used.
