Course Description

Presenter: Steven Stahl

Unlike rigid tape which many people find too stiff and restrictive, RockTape is stretchy and is quickly becoming the preferred tape used by practitioners to treat injuries by reducing pain and accelerating recovery.  RockTape can also be used to enhance performance by improving form and technique, as well as reducing post-exercise soreness.


What does RockTape do?  When applied correctly, RockTape’s unique elasticity causes the skin to form convolutions and wrinkle.  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 tissue layers

•             Neurological effect- altering the perception of pain and improving body awareness


RockTape courses are Australia’s most popular kinesiology tape courses.  Since 2010 we have conducted over 500 full and half day courses, attended by more than 10,000 people.  Why the interest?


Unlike other methods, RockTape’s taping protocol is based on an ‘open-source’ philosophy - we don’t believe there’s only one right way to tape.  This approach to taping integrates concepts from all other methods and provides a framework for the practitioner to determine the best approach for them and their clients using their own clinical reasoning.  By teaching a framework of kinesiology taping - concepts not recipes, it’s much easier for attendees to apply clinically to their customer group – i.e. lower limb, upper limb, paediatric, geriatric, neuro, musculoskeletal equine, canine, etc. 


Our half day introduction (level 1) courses are attractive to busy practitioners, and those that are keen to just learn the basic principles of kinesiology taping.  This course provides the basics of kinesiology taping: regional taping for pain, taping for swelling and recovery and taping for posture.  In addition this course includes an introduction to the concepts of “Fascial Chain Taping”: utilising the benefits of kinesiology taping to tape the muscles associated with a particular activity.  For example, linking the muscles of the appropriate kinetic chain, ie lower back, hamstring and calf muscles that make up the posterior chain.


Course Outline:

  1. Overview of the theory of kinesiology taping
  2. Regional taping - basic muscle and joint applications
  3. Introduction to oedema / inflammation taping
  4. Introduction to posture taping
  5. Introduction to fascial chain taping
