RockTape: Support Your Horse
By Matrix Therapy Products
About the Product: RockTape relieves swelling through decompression, which speeds recovery. It is the world’s best kinesiology tape. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain.
RockTape can be used for both horse and rider in equine therapy. It works by microscopically lifting the skin away from the muscle and fascia, which decompresses the area and leads to reduced swelling. RockTape also signals the central nervous system through the skin's nerves, which provides powerful feedback to minimize pain and cue form. This is also the tape used at Matrix’s Symmetry = Success Bodywork course with Bambi Dore.
Part of the Matrix Therapy Toolbox: RockTape was introduced in our Bodywork Course Symmetry = Success clinics. Our method uses taping differently from what is commonly taught. Instead of a standalone support option, the tape is applied supportively only after the corrective work is done. The key is to be able to see why and where taping can be useful. Having the quality of the Rock Tape brand makes it a joy to work with and it stays where you put it for the right amount of time.
These two photos are of CJ getting with his tape applied at one of this year's Symmetry = Success clinics with Bambi Dore. If you'd like to know more about the issues being addressed, check out Ashley's Corner where she talks about using various therapy tools to help her horses, including CJ.
