RockTape® is the world’s best kinesiology tape. But it isn’t ONLY about the tape; it’s about applying it correctly.

First used by kinesiology specialists in Japan, today Tri-Covery’s trained and certified therapists use kinesiology tape to treat a host of injuries and improve sports performance in a variety of ways that include:

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • ACL/MCL issues
  • Bowler’s shoulder
  • Groin and hamstring pulls
  • Jumpers knee (PFS)
  • Knee injuries
  • Lower back issues
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Postural correction
  • Rotator cuff
  • Shin splints
  • Tennis and golf elbow

How Does RockTape® Kinesiology Therapy Work?

RockTape® microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect. Applied along the fascial lines of the body, the tape helps the body move by stimulating stabilization, increasing range of motion, and absorbing impact.

Stabilization for Movement

Picture a baseball pitcher throwing a fastball while standing on a sheet of ice. Less stability results in less power and range of motion to affect a suitable throw. That same pitcher on a prepared baseball pitcher’s mound has the stability necessary to exert all possible force to throw a 90+ mph fastball.

Tri-Covery therapists apply RockTape® to help the body feel stabilized for the brain to allow the added range of motion.   Troubled portions of the body, such as shoulders, hips or ankles, in order to provide the stimulation needed to increase range of motion and free movement.

RockTape® Therapy Improves Blood Flow

RockTape® lifts layers of tissue to improve blood flow and healing. Imagine puppies lying between thick, heavy quilts on a bed.  They would struggle moving and air circulation would be very poor.  Now imagine a light down comforter filled with fluffy feathers instead of the crushing quilts.  The puppies would be able to move around easier, have better air circulation and the layers of down blankets would be easier to slide back and forth.  (No puppies were harmed or used during the fictional example.)

This is the theory behind RockTape® therapy for improved blood flow. The layers of skin are microscopically lifted to allow for decreased pressure on the blood vessels, nerves and the lymphatic system. This allows freer movement of blood, lymph and oxygen, and speeds the healing process.

    Jerry M.
  • “I want to thank Jeff for being a positive and understanding force in my recovery from Back surgery. He also has helped me gain a love of exercise and messages. The kindness and patience I have received from Jeff has helped me understand how important it is to exercise and to keep fit. It is a work in progress and I am happy to be working with Jeff.”

    Kris S.
  • “You will never meet a more honest, caring, dedicated individual than Jeff Kong!”

    Penny S.
  • “I have been seeing Jeff now for several years, and I can say without any hesitation, that he is the finest massage therapist in the land. Not only is he skilled and knowledgeable, but he is also one of the nicest people you will ever come across. Jeff takes the time to access your needs and concerns, and then skillfully goes to work on your problem areas. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who desires massage therapy delivered in a relaxing, friendly and professional environment.”

    David S.
  • “Jeff’s expert knowledge of fitness, strengthening, and conditioning exercises really helped us get started on a simple in home program to help us stay fit and keep our weight in control. After only a couple of visits he was able to teach us dozens of routines that we could work on in our home without having to invest in any expensive equipment. Jeff is such a personable professional, he makes doing your exercises fun. Thanks to Jeff we now have more energy and feel our bodies are better toned! Also, his messages will do wonders for any tense muscles or stiffness you may be experiencing. If you want expert, personalized fitness training we highly recommend Tri-Covery Massage & Fitness.”

    Tom and Sandee D.
  • “I went to Jeff with a nagging shoulder pain. Jeff quickly identified what it was and how to help it to heal. Most importantly, he showed me stretches and exercises to help keep from injuring it again.”

    Jason L.
  • “As both an athlete and a personal trainer, I understand the benefits of sports massage first-hand. When my body needs a rejuvenating massage, I call Jeff. If a friend, family member or training client can benefit from sports massage, the only name I give them is Jeff Kong. Very few people have the combined skill set of athlete, trainer and massage therapist with a functional knowledge of the body like Jeff. I never hesitate to recommend him, and you shouldn’t hesitate to call him.”

    Tad M.
  • “I have been training with and getting massages from Jeff Kong for over 5 years. I have a chronic back condition that can be very difficult to deal with at times. He REALLY listens to what is going on and what areas need attention on any particular day. He uses any of the great variety of methods and techniques that he feels will help me that particular day. When I schedule a massage before a visit to my chiropractor, it greatly helps the ease of adjustment and relaxes my muscles so I have a better chance of STAYING aligned after my adjustment. He’s one of the BEST and I would and DO highly recommend him!”

    Ann R.
  • “I consistently am thanked for referring clients to Jeff and often hear him described as, “caring, intuitive, engaged professional, and the best”. For these reasons, Jeff continues to earn my massage therapy referrals. Thank you, Jeff”

    Benjamin W., MSPT
