If you’ve ever made New Year’s Resolutions you know that by the end of January they are often long forgotten but RockTape wants to help you change that in 2020 with better movement, improved joint and muscle health and reduced discomfort during your workouts.
Here’s how RockTape can help you stick to your New Year’s Resolutions:
If you move well, heal faster after being injured and feel less discomfort during your fitness routine or workout, you’ll be more likely to stick with your goals of being more active or becoming better at your favourite sport. Add professional advice from people who know movement best and you’re on your way to success. RockTape can help on all those fronts. Here’s a breakdown:
RockTape helps you move better by giving your body tactile mechanical feedback which improves kinesthetic awareness and helps with movement correction. This is a very fancy way of saying that sticking something physical onto your skin makes your brain more aware of a certain area which is great for improving how that part of your body moves. Taping specific problem areas can guide better form during movement, helping the brain to normalise those movements and prevent injuries from occurring due to weak or wrong movement.
RockTape is great at relieving pain and reducing discomfort that you might experience both during and after physical activities. When applied correctly, RockTape runs interference on pain thanks to its microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin.
Applying RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the underlying fascia, reducing pressure on sensitive pain receptors. Think of it as turning down the pain “volume” that your body hears. RockTape does so by affecting the nerve endings and different types of receptors in the skin of the injured area.
If you’ve ever suffered from a minor injury you know how swelling, bruising and inflammation can affect your performance. RockTape can help your body’s natural healing process to happen faster by allowing greater blood flow to and from an injured area. RockTape creates more room in between layers of fascia, muscle, fat, skin, and other structures which means that congested or compressed blood vessels are under less pressure and can remove the by-products created by inflammation more effectively
Get better posture
Good posture can improve your performance during physical activity by strengthening postural muscles that guide how you move. It also helps to relieve tension in your neck and shoulders and can improve circulation. When everything is aligned, your body can perform optimally.
RockTape can help you improve your posture by giving you tactile feedback because you’ll feel it stretching when you slouch. This kind of feedback can help you to break the habits that cause bad posture.
