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.

Longer Interview with Kelly Starrett on the Boom Stick
Results like the following video have become "run of the mill" with this product. We have consistently seen the same results repeatedly.
Travis Jewett, DC MWOD Seminar Staff The Boomstick is a perfect complement to the Thompson Geisha Roller as body tempering device. This 22 lb. high-grade steel tool is highly effective as a body-tempering roller for the smaller extremities. The weight and perfectly contoured ends are designed to optimize use for targeting specific trigger points when used on yourself, or by a body worker or clinician. There is not a better tool for targeting the deep tissue and effectively releasing key trigger points in the pecs, shoulders, subscap, hamstring and more. The knurl isn't just for grip, its mild enough not to cut the skin and allow it to be twisted providing a shearing effect to fascia and muscle tissue. The Boomstick can be used pre or post workout to prepare the muscle for training or to assist in post training relief. To defeat hypertonicity, you need the Boomstick.

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
Do you ship to Canada ??
Yes, we sure do!
Hi , How much its cost the shipping to Montreal Qc Canada?
Shipping is going to depend on where specifically it is going in that area. If you go through the checkout process and enter your address it will give you shipping to your specific address.
Hi, I was just wondering if you ship to the UK and Ireland?
We do ship to both of those countries, but for two of our products (the boomstick and the painpill) we are partnered with a company that is based in the UK that manufactures and ships them from there. If you just choose the "UK" or "Ireland" shipping option at checkout (it will give you one appropriate to your country based on your address) it will ship from the UK and likely be much cheaper than us sending it from the US.
Is the Boomstick & Painpill available in Australia? If so, where
Currently we don't have any Australian distributors
Hi, i was just wondering if you ship to Italy ?
Yes we do.
What are the advantages of the zinc treatment?
The zinc plating is very thin metal coating that goes over the product, it won’t change the function at all but it will prevent the product from rusting and keep it cosmetically nice for a very long time.
Which one is the best, the unteated or the zinc? I didn't realize there were two different kinds. I hope I didn't make a mistake when I placed my order for my son.
The zinc plating is very thin metal coating that goes over the product, it won’t change the function at all but it will prevent the product from rusting and keep it cosmetically nice for a very long time. The untreated product will function exactly the same, however it may require a bit more care and may be more succeptible to surface-rusting (can be easily cleaned) if left in a humid environment.
I got a boomstick. How do I access the videos on how to use it?
The following public YouTube playlist contains lots of videos on proper use of the Boomstick. If you have any video suggestions or other questions/ideas, feel free to email us at "firstname.lastname@example.org". https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLb-4Y0uOHcQf17o5qnZzlmubmlupswBRF
