K-Taping

Certified by ROCKTAPE, I can provide taping that is designed for athletes that want a little edge in their game. ROCKTAPE helps athletes manage fatigue by promoting better circulation.
Based on the latest research, I operate based on the functions of:-

  • Fascial Movement: the idea that our fascia is as important as muscles.
  • Movement: assessing and understanding movement is key to successful outcomes.
  • Chains: I believe there are sport-specific kinetic chains that can be activated to enhance performance.
  • Open Source: There is no single right way to do anything. We embrace all ideas and concepts and welcome input from everyone.

ROCKTAPE can also be used to stabilize muscles and joints that have been sprained or hurt. Unlike braces and sleeves that constrain and reduce blood flow, ROCKTAPE can provide support and stability while increasing blood flow. Thus, the tape’s capabilities make it well suited to the repair of localized muscle groups.

The same science that is used to treat injuries can be applied to promote better circulation and lymph drainage for sports applications. By applying ROCKTAPE to specific muscle groups, I am able to reduce muscle vibration, accelerate blood flow out of the muscles to encourage oxygenation and promote lymph drainage, which helps remove lactic acid. These functions provide the athlete with additional endurance and help promote recovery.

Additionally, ROCKTAPE has developed a new protocol for taping called “PowerTaping”. By taping all the muscle groups associated with a particular sport, we create a sports specific bio-kinetic chain. For example, with cyclists, we tape the calves, quads and hip flexors. With these muscles taped, they become “engaged”, both mechanically and mentally.
