I am RockTape Certified in Fascial Movement Taping Level 1&2.
A special kinesiology/sports tape that provides support while allowing full range of motion.
Tape is used to decrease pain, unload tissue via decompression, and provide a novel stimulus that improves body awareness.
When people move better, they tend to move more.
RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape.
First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
While the use of kinesiology is often associated with athletes such as Michelle Wie, Adrian Peterson and Jason Khalipa, the reality is that RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.
RockTape is made from 97% cotton and 3% nylon. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic, acrylic-based and contains no latex
RockTape is a premium brand of kinesiology tape. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports related injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s kneeand back pain. RockTape can also help delay fatigue, which results in improved sport performance.
Stickier, hypoallergenic adhesive that won't fall off during competition 180% stretch, the same elasticity as skin, to promote full range of motion 97% cotton, 3% Nylon 6/12, low moisture absorption Tighter weave, which enables muscle to more easily snap back to neutral Water resistant Variety of designs and colors Wearable for up to 5 days Each Roll is 2"x16.4' (5cmx5m)
When applied properly, RockTape kinesiology tape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, increasing blood flow.
Increased blood flow…
Relieves swelling by creating more space for the congested and compressed capillaries, lymph vessels, arteries and veins. This results in faster removal of the by-products created by inflammation.
Delays fatigue, speeding up recovery for rehab patients and enabling athletes to go stronger, longer.
Cues form by increasing the patient or athlete’s awareness of their body position to help maintain proper alignment and form.
Normalizes muscle tone by realigning the muscles that may be disrupted by injuries. When injured, we typically alter our movement to avoid pain, which can cause future discomfort or even further injury.
Through tactical cueing, RockTape reminds you to maintain a good posture, allowing the injury to heal faster.
RockSauce is the first and only warm topical pain cream designed for use with RockTape. When applied directly to the surface of RockTape, RockSauce soaks into Rocktape and slowly releases itself which provides cooling and warmth for up to an hour. When by itself, RockSauce provides both cooling and warmth making it the perfect all-in-one treatment.
Cold & Heat
The ingredients in RockSauce, called distractants, give you both cooling sensations and heat – to stop pain.
It’s not just for pain. RockSauce makes a great pre-tape prep, A.R.T. or Graston lubricant, or even as a preventative measure before your workout.
How to Use:
Apply to skin of sore or injured area.
Wipe off completely.
Apply dime-size dollops of sauce every 3 inches on top of tape. Rub into tape and surrounding skin.
This technique will clean the skin prior to tape application and keep the muscles warm for 1-2 hours.
