Feels awesome on the feet. One of the best foot massages you’ll ever have.

The Boomstick is effective pre or post workout.
Before you hit the gym floor use it to prepare the muscle for training. After your workout and between workouts use it to assist with recovery and defeat hypertonicity.
If you’re interested you can order one for Chris at Kabuki Strength.
How does it work
Like I said. This thing is heavy.
At just a hair under 20 pounds the heft of the Boomstick applies pressure to specific areas such as trigger points.
Both ends are perfectly contoured and optimized for targeting trigger points. Plus there’s a knurl that generates a shearing effect to the fascia and muscle tissue when twisted over the skin.
That knurling also doubles as a grip.
Many massage practitioners are taking advantage of the tool and implementing it and these techniques to increase the effectiveness of their work and the amount of work they can.
Common Uses of the Boomstick
- Shearing of Fascia and Muscle Tissue with soft knurl
- Targeting Trigger Points with Rounded Ends
- IASTM or “Body Tempering”
Better than foam rolling. Like a massage without the price tag or travel.
