RockBlade tools and Rockpods are designed to release myofascial tightness. The myofascia is the dense connective tissue that covers and protects all the muscles and bones. Releasing this tightness relieves pain and allows normal movement to return.
RockBlades also encourage healing, assisting the body to repair and replace damaged tissue.
Rockpods work in a similar fashion to traditional cupping, using rubber for suction instead of glass and flame.
Soft tissue therapy can be used for a range of different conditions, and RockTape is often applied afterwards to extend the benefits of the treatment.
RockTape is a premium brand of kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by a wide variety of health professionals throughout the world to both prevent and treat injuries and pain.
When applied correctly, RockTape’s unique elasticity causes the skin to form convolutions and wrinkle. This decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin. It is believed that this has three main effects:
- Fluid effect- improving blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area
- Mechanical effect- improving the slide and glide between tissue layers
- Neurological effect- altering the perception of pain and improving body awareness.
