How It Works

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.

How Does RockTape Work?

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.
