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, which is believed has three main effects:

  • Fluid effect - improving blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area

  • Mechanical effect - improving the slide and glide between tissue layer

  • Neurological effect - altering the perception of pain and improving body awareness

  • Assists to reduce swelling and bruising
