Body tempering utilizes a steal cylindrical-shaped object weighing between 15-200# applied to a body part in a relaxed state. It was developed by Donnie Thompson, who states it is a “form of passive strengthening of your body’s muscles, tendons and even joints”.  The pressure from the load helps distribute blood flow as well as creating symmetrical “pressure” throughout the affected muscle(s) thereby promoting muscle relaxation, improving mobility and decreasing pain.
