I am absolutely in love with these cups, from their ingenious pump system, to the flip technique that increases the suction, to the colors, to the fancy storage case. You have probably gotten a bunch of information from the other reviews, so I won't bother to repeat a majority of what everyone else has said. The one thing I will say that is unique and amazing about these cups is that the area on the edge of the cup that touches the skin is a lot wider, and provides more surface area to contact the skin than your standard compression/pump/fire cups. The thing that makes this fact amazing is that you avoid the deep circular compression marks left by a harder "edged" surface, making the experience of having these applied to an area much more pleasant. You do not have to worry about decompression provided by the suction causing a painful compression on the border.

I found the pods to be nice quality but difficult to work with and limited instructions on how to get pods to stay in place with other modalities or topical treatment. The placement of the pods appears limited by suction quality on certain areas ie. Low back, quad, hamstring
I really like RockPods. I think with the two application methods they get the suction needed. The portability and ease of use are another positive for me. Adding a few more sizes would be a plus but the two sizes offered are suitable for most situations. The only neg I have is I would like the handles to have a little more texture as I use lubrication on my clients and the cups can become slippery, but that is a very minor neg.
I recently had cervical disc replacement surgery at the c5c6 vertebrae and these suction cups have helped me SO much with muscle spasms and tightness! Whenever I start to feel the tightness, especially around angry nerves, i do a cupping session and immediately feel relief.
Absolutely love the Rock Pods. Very good at staying where they are put and are easy to use. Have worked phenomenally so far in clinic. Highly recommend!
I have been using these for quick mobility and stretching prior to workouts for my clients. They love them and I love that I don't have to be so hands on with the soft tissue mobilization.
I find them very useful. I love them
With or Without Lubrication, these Rock Pods can get the job done. It's all about the "Lifting" action on the surface of the skin that can get really deep and move out stagnant fluid, congestion in the tissues, and loosens scar tissue to promote fast healing and recuperation time.
With over 8 years of working with different cupping technique I find this cups helpfull with decompression of the of the fascia releasing of adhesions and fascia manipulation due to the nobs design to be able lift A+++ for the designer .Thank you
So far I have only used the smaller cup size on 1 patient for shoulder anterior capsule adhesions and pain with ROM. Applied 1 small cup and had pt go through available range with cup in place, increased the range while cup was on (and range with no pain). Kept on for 3 minutes total with various movements. Removed cup and pt retained motion in all planes and no pain! Success! Can't wait to test these out for other mobility issues! Love the case- very convenient! Great quality of cupping pods. I also like that there are 2 size options in the set and the price point! Bring the cupping course to Missouri!
Other than that it is harder to use them as moving cups. They however are convenient, portable, and easy to use.
great tool to use after a workout.
We added RockPods into our PT clinic because our plastic cupping set was both too cumbersome and too uncomfortable for clients when adding movement. RockPods solve this AND are fast to apply since there is no pump involved. The silicone is very comfortable, even in sensitive areas or for clients who are amped up due to pain.
Rock Pods work as advertised. I have used acrylic cup sets for years and I think these will do the same job.
These cups are a good Tool for patients with sensitive skin, young athletes and elderly. These cups does not provide enough suction to break down tough adhesions. Still a good tool to have in the office.
RockPods are the perfect addition to my manual therapy treatment options. Many of my chiropractic patients are afraid of acupuncture, but curious about cupping. The RockPods are easy to use and easy to clean. I’ve treated patients with neck tension, shoulder pain, low back pain and exercise related muscle soreness. So far folks are seeing faster results, increased movement, and decreased pain.
I still have to figure out what I'm doing. I think I'm going to like them.
easy to use. solid construction.
They have good skin contact/ suction on most areas. Locations such as plantar foot or gastrox on many smaller leaner clients the pods can’t be applied. Overall I’m very happy with them.
