If you're someone who's experienced pain caused by swelling, strain, fatigue or inflammation, you've probably noticed the relieving effect that something as simple as rubbing the affected area can have to temporarily reduce the pain. This is because when you rub that area on the skin, you're interfering with the pain signals sent to your brain.
RockTape H2O Kinesiology Tape uses this principle to help athletes and regular people relieve their pain and go stronger, longer thanks to its tighter weave, greater elasticity and stronger adhesive than other kinesiology tapes.
Who Can Make Gains With RockTape H2O?
Rocktape H2O is made to the exact same standards as standard RockTape, with one critical difference: it's twice as sticky. With two times the glue, RockTape H2O gives the strongest hold possible for even the toughest conditions. This makes it perfect for watersports and swimmers, as it will stay on in the pool or water even more than normal RockTape, so you can get back in the pool sooner, for longer.
Decompression of Inflammation and Swelling
Once RockTape is applied to the skin, a microscopic lifting effect occurs beneath the skin and muscle layers. This gentle lift allows the by-products of inflammation to be removed from your system faster, helping you to recover more quickly than before.
Whether you're going through rehab or at the top of your game, fatigue is an important factor for the health of your muscles and joints. If you're recovering from an injury, the healthy parts of your body will often try to pick up the slack for the ailing ones, which can lead to re-aggravated or new injuries. Research has shown that applying RockTape to the affected areas can eliminate this phenomenon, and help to attenuate muscle fatigue, helping you to recover faster or perform longer.
Normalise Muscle Tone
If you're injured, tired or sick, the symphony of muscle action that would normally take place with precision often falls out of tune. When this happens, it can affect your entire body. For example, people who sprain their ankle are often found to have disrupted activity in the hip muscle as a result. RockTape can alleviate this problem by bringing inactive muscle into use to ease the load of overactive ones. It makes groups of muscles work as one, helping your body coordinate as if it weren't hurt, allowing it to heal properly.
Unlike conventional taping that prevents movement, RockTape's tight weave and elasticity allow full movement of the affected area. With its quick recoil, RockTape can distribute forces to nearby areas through ligaments, fascia and even bones.
