The term ‘flossing’ is commonly associated with the image of a thick rubber band wrapped around an athlete’s large muscles, however; ‘floss bands’ are an excellent tool for clinical care and a valuable tool for your patient and athlete’s self-care programs.
FMT RockFloss explores the science of compression band flossing and fascial shearing to help improve joint mobility, reduce pain*, and enhance movement. RockFloss is one of the latest additions to the RockTape tool arsenal to better equip each clinician, therapist, or trainer to deliver superior patient and client outcomes.
- RockFloss (1 x 5cm, 1 x 10cm) included in registration fee.
- All class supplies (tape, scissors, digital course notes) are provided.
- You will be credentialed in FMT, which is an internationally recognized certification.
- CEUs are offered to professionals registered with HPCSA or AHPCSA where the techniques fall within their scope of practice

FMT RockFloss Certification- Compression Band Flossing Certification
The FMT RockFloss Certification introduces the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding to help reduce tissue swelling, improve movement and modulate pain* with the use of ‘compression band floss’.This course will cover the anatomy, physiology and neurology of the effects of compression band flossing on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue compression.
Interventions with compression band floss (including direction and pressure concepts) will be reviewed and integrated into current rehabilitative concepts. RockFloss is one of the latest additions to the RockTape tool arsenal to better equip each clinician, therapist or trainer to deliver superior patient and client outcomes.
This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with a basic understanding of soft tissue techniques. Each participant will keep their RockFloss, mobility balls and RockTape after this course.
The Functional Movement Techniques (FMT) Certification Series are led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy.
EDUCATIONAL LEARNING OUTCOMES FOR FMT ROCKFLOSS:
After this course the participant will be able to:
- Define, understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model
- Discover and explore neuroanatomy of the dermal/fascial subsystem
- Recognize and demonstrate a novel skin/fascial glide screening process
- Describe and interpret the research as it relates to connective tissue gliding and pain* modulation.
- Define, practise, and integrate banded floss techniques related to soft tissue pathology as it relates to tension, direction and pressure
- Compare, contrast and perform various methods of current rehabilitative treatment techniques with RockFloss
