Sports Massage & Body Tempering in Albuquerque, NM

We’re no strangers to the toll that strenuous physical activities can take on our bodies. Whether it’s a sprained ankle from an intense basketball game or a muscle strain from a heavy lifting session, injuries can sideline us from what we love doing.

Imagine this: You’re rolling a heavy steel cylinder across your body, applying pressure to your muscles. It may sound a little odd, but that’s the essence of body tempering. We use these weighted instruments to apply deep compression to your muscles, which in turn breaks up knots, increases blood flow, and promotes recovery. It’s like a deep tissue massage on steroids. Not only does it help alleviate pain and reduce the risk of injury, but it also aids in enhancing physical performance.

But don’t just take our word for it. Numerous professional athletes and trainers swear by the effectiveness of body tempering. They’ve seen firsthand how it can turn the tide on injuries, speeding up recovery times and getting them back in the game faster than ever. It’s not a quick fix, but a proven method of injury prevention and recovery that can make a significant difference in your athletic performance. So, whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, we’re confident that body tempering can help you stay in top form, injury-free.


What’s body tempering and how can it help me?

Body tempering is a form of soft tissue mobilization that we use to enhance muscle performance, increase flexibility, and reduce pain. It involves using heavy, cylindrical implements to apply pressure and movement across muscles. It’s an excellent method to help you recover from workouts, reduce muscle tightness, and enhance your overall athletic performance.

How does body tempering differ from a regular sports massage?

While both body tempering and sports massage aim to alleviate muscle pain and improve performance, they’re quite different. Body tempering uses weighted implements to apply pressure, promoting recovery and performance enhancement. This differs from sports massage, which typically involves manual manipulation of the muscles and soft tissues. Both are effective, but they’re different tools we use to help you reach your performance goals.

Is body tempering painful?

While body tempering can feel intense, we wouldn’t describe it as painful. You might feel a bit of discomfort as we work on tight or sore areas, but it’s generally tolerable. And remember, we’re always here to ensure your comfort, so don’t hesitate to tell us if you’re feeling too much discomfort.

How long does a body tempering session last?

Typically, a body tempering session at Propel lasts around 30 minutes. However, the length can vary depending on your specific needs and the areas of your body we’re focusing on. We’ll always take the time to discuss your needs and goals before starting a session, ensuring we provide the best possible care.

Do I need to prepare anything before a body tempering session?

No, you don’t need to prepare anything special before a body tempering session. We’d recommend wearing comfortable clothing that allows us to easily access the areas we’ll be working on. Other than that, just come prepared to relax and let us help enhance your performance and health.

This innovative technique used within a sports massage, can help our clients to improve their mobility, flexibility, and strength in a holistic and therapeutic way. We don’t just focus on treating your symptoms, but we’re passionate about identifying and addressing the root cause of your discomfort.
