DAY ONE: MYOFASCIAL CUPPING PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION
FMT RockPods explores the science of tissue gliding, traction and decompression with easy to use myofascial cups. RockPods are one of the latest additions to the RockTape tool arsenal to better equip each clinician and therapist 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.
MT RockPods Certification introduces the concept of skin/fascial decompression to help improve tissue mobility, improve movement and modulate pain with myofascial cupping. This course will cover the anatomy, physiology and neurology of the effects of myofascial cupping on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue decompression. FMT RockPods Certification will explore skin and fascial decompression with myofascial cups by evaluating the dermal and fascial systems. Interventions with cupping (RockPods) will be reviewed based on the literature and integrated into current rehabilitative concepts.
This 6-hour certification course is intended for practitioners and therapists with a basic understanding of soft tissue techniques. All supplies needed for the course are provided. There are no prerequisites for FMT RockPods.
DAY TWO: COMPRESSION BAND FLOSSING PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION
The term ‘flossing’ is commonly associated with the image of a thick rubber band wrapped around an athlete’s large muscles, however; ‘floss bands’ are an excellent tool for clinical care and a valuable tool for your patient’s and athlete’s self care programs.
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.
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.
