ROCKPODS CUPPING SETBENEFITS OF CUPPING--> The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue and migraines. Check out this article for more info -->
What's that?! IASTM or tools assist in reducing adhesion's and increase healing rates of targeted tissue. Specially designed tools are used to apply longitudinal pressure along the course of tissue. The tools facilitate the clinician’s ability to detect altered tissue properties, as well as facilitate the patient’s awareness of altered sensations within the treated tissues. Increased vibration within the tool is believed to be an indication of abnormal tissue properties. Additionally, the tools are believed to provide a mechanical advantage that allows the clinician to achieve greater depth of mechanical force transmission than can be produced with hands. Tools also reduce compressive stress on the clinician’s hands which can prolong the career of a manual therapist.

RockBlade: IASTM Tool
The stainless steel tool has numerous edges to contour around the body which prevents the need of multiple tools.Some edges are sharp for scanning the tissue and treating superficial adhesions and some edges are dull for deeper tissue penetration. In Figure 1 the edges are numbered in a clockwise order and described below. Edge 1: Dull – Treatment of Deeper Tissue in Large Area (ie. Superficial Muscle of Hamstring) Edge 2: Dull – Treatment of Deeper Tissue in Smaller Regions (ie. Soleus under Gastrocnemius) Edge 3: Dull – Treatment of Deeper Tissue in Medium Size Area (ie. Bicep) Edge 4: Sharp – Scanning and treatment of smaller regions (ie. Carpals) Edge 5: Sharp – Scanning Large regions (ie. Forearm) Edge 6: Sharp – Scanning and Treatment of Small Regions and Bony Prominences (ie. Elbow) Edge 7: Dull – Treatment around Fingers and Toes Edge 8: Dull – Treatment around Small Regions and Bony Prominences (ie Malleolus’) Edge 9: Handle – Can be gripped either way
