What is RockTape?— by Revolutions In Fitness Associate Frank Fletcher rhythmicnature.com
Taping with traditional Athletic Tape, is a bracing method, utilizing an inelastic medium to inhibit the movement of a joint or group of muscles. K-Taping and now R-Taping are new techniques utilizing elasticity similar to that of skin. K-Tape is advertised to have a stretch length of 130% to 140% of it's original length. Meanwhile, R-Tape is said to stretch to 190% of its original length.
The purpose of both tapes is to lift the skin and the surface fascia with it. This theoretically promotes blood flow in and out of the deep fascia as well as innervating the underlying musculature.
