At Wellness As Rx we offer the most advanced treatment and functional movement techniques using RockTape and RockBlades.
RockTape is a type of kinesiology tape.
A standalone RockTape session is typically 15min-30min and includes. The cost of the treatment depends on the area and the amount of tape needed.
One specific area: $10-20 add on to a massage session
RockBlades are IASTM tools. IASTM stands for Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. It is a massage modality that focuses on the direct breakup of soft tissue. RockBlades help to locate and treat adhesions within muscle and fascia.
IASTM helps relieve symptoms such as pain during or limited range of motion, problems with muscle control, problems with muscle recruitment, tendonitis, and more.
One specific area: $15 add on to massage session
A full treatment RockBlade and RockTape session is the best approach for allowing for neurological tweaking of the central nervous system, fascial release, mechanoreceptor stimulation, promoting enhanced movement and performance patterns allowing the patient to lock in the changes via corrective strategies.

RockTape 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 microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect.
First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
While the use of kinesiology tape is often associated with athletes such as Michelle Wie, Adrian Peterson and Jason Khalipa, medical professionals have been using it to alleviate a wide variety of ailments, not just sports injuries.
RockTape is made from 97% cotton and 3% nylon. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic, acrylic-based and contains no latex.

RockBlades offer a revolutionary approach to Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). RockBlades or FMT Blades are myofascial release tools designed to assist with soft tissue therapy for increasing functional mobility and reducing pain. The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcome.
Our IASTM treatment engages the myofascial tissue by creating tension and shear. This creates a mechanical and neurological effect on the system that addresses soft tissue restrictions, helps to initiate healing mechanisms, and stimulates mechanical receptors that increase movement and reduce pain.
RockBlades are used to treat:
Tennis or golfer's elbow
Rotator cuff strains
MCL or LCL strains
