FMT RockFloss Compression Bands (Webcast)


FMT RockFloss explores the science of compression band flossing and fascial shearing to help improve joint mobility, reduce pain*, and enhance movement. RockFloss is the one of the latest additions to the RockTape tool arsenal to better equip each clinician, therapist or trainer to deliver superior patient and client outcomes.

Myofascial Cupping has been around since the early 19th century - only recently has the image of purple circles on professional athlete’s backs created attention to an ancient myofascial therapy. The cups and techniques have changed over time, but the basic premise of the cups providing suction to decompress the underlying tissue remains the same.

The FMT RockFloss Certification introduces the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding to help reduce tissue swelling, improve movement and modulate pain* with the use of ‘compression band floss’. This course will cover the anatomy, physiology and neurology of the effects of compression band flossing on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue compression.

Interventions with compression band floss (including direction and pressure concepts) will be reviewed and integrated into current rehabilitative concepts.

FMT Flossing and Cupping Certification courses are led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy AND you get to take home your supplies from the course to use immediately on your patients and athletes.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  1. Define, understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model
  2. Discover and explore neuroanatomy of the dermal/fascial subsystem
  3. Recognize and demonstrate a novel skin/fascial glide screening process
  4. Describe and interpret current research as it relates to connective tissue gliding and pain modulation.
  5. Differentiate compression floss band wrapping techniques with graded exposure of tension, direction and pressure parameters
  6. Define, practice, and explaincompression floss band application techniques and link them to appropriate soft tissue pathology
