Rocktape is a brand of kinesiology tape. It is stretchier, stickier and superior.

Unlike rigid tape which is stiff and restrictive, effectively decreasing the range of motion of a joint, as well as effecting the motion of the joint above and below, Rocktape with its unique elastic properties provides functional support while allowing normal movement. When applied over a stretch muscle, Rocktape lifts the skin, accelerating blood flow to increase the amount of oxygen available, which reduces fatigue. It also promotes lymphatic flow to remove toxins and waste products produced by the body. It can be used to both prevent and treat injuries and pain.


How It Works?

When applied correctly, Rocktape’s unique elasticity causes the skin to form convolutions and wrinkles. This decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin. It is believed that this has three main effects:

  • Fluid effect – improving blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area
  • Mechanical effect – improving the slide and glide between the tissue layers
  • Neurological – altering the perception of pain and improving body awareness

Key Benefits:

  • Assists to decrease pain
  • Assists to reduce swelling and bruising
  • Provides functional support while allowing full range of movement
  • Hypoallergenic – no zinc oxide or latex
  • Water resistance – can be worn for up to 5 days

Key Reasons:

  • Muscle pain or cramping
  • Joint pain
  • Poor posture
  • Inflammation or bruising
  • Zinc oxide allergies

Key Features:

  • Stickier, hypoallergenic adhesive
  • 180% stretch to allow full range of movement
  • 97% cotton, 3% Nylon 6/12, low moisture absorption
  • The properties of different colours and patterns are the same
  • Included is an instruction sheet for the most popular applications


Be weary of substandard and low quality kinesiology tape. These would be appealing only due to costing less, but there would be reasons for this:

  • They are made outside of Korea. Korea is where the original and best kinesiology tape is made.
  • The weave of tape is poorly made and finished thus effecting the elastic properties and qualities which is the main concept of kinesiology tape in the first place.
  • The adhesive glue is potentially toxic and low grade, causing it to come off easily and more often, resulting in more tape being used and costing more in the long run.
