As a Bodyworker with training in numerous techniques, it's difficult to find a product that can be used for most if not all modalities. RockRub has solved that problem for me. I work on all different types of patients with soft tissue injuries/restrictions in office at at events. RockRub is very versatile in that it works great for deep work or as an emollient for IASTM. It has replaced my other cream for deep work because a little certainly goes a long way! This product is by no means unscented, it does have a scent but nothing that my patients have ever mentioned bothering them. Yes it may stain, but you can treat stains with a stain remover product or cover areas of clothing with a towel and wipe the skin after treatment. I don't have any issues with clumping per the complaint of a previous reviewer. It just needs a little warmth and it spreads easy. If you plan to tape after using RockRub you can simply wipe the skin with the RockTape wipes. If you use too much RockRub then yes you'll need to use more wipes, but again you don't need to use a lot of it. Whether you are a PT, DC, MT, or anyone who needs a product to manipulate tissue at an amazing price RockRub is for you! Get it! NOW! :)
- Beeswax - Yup, the bees that made this wax are from Down Under
- Canola Oil - A natural oil derived from rapeseed and low in erucic acid
- Vitamin E - A powerful healing agent to repair your skin while you sleep
I have 3 complaints: Number 1: RockRub can be challenging to scrub off prior to taping. This can be very problematic to taping prior to treatment. The tape will not stick to treatment areas unless I scrub hardcore on the treatment sites (and RockWipes aren't helpful unless I use a whole pack). I think the RockSauce is a better option for this reason alone. The smell of RockSauce can make the whole clinic smell intense after 2-3 patients, but it does work better. Number 2: I have a clumping problem with the RockRub. It does not spread easily. I am storing it at the correct temperature. I do not recall my first container being this clumpy. It just doesn't seem to want to spread. Now it could be that I just ordered a couple containers that were older maybe, I dunno.... Finally, Number 3: The canola oil in the RockRub will stain clothing of patients and practitioners. Kind of annoying, but I would imagine most products with any oil would do this. Again, this is why I would support RockSauce over the RockRub. My advice: side step the RockRub and use RockSauce. (I just wish they made a hybrid of RockRub and RockSauce). Something with the consistency of RockSauce, but odorless (and non-mentholated) like RockRub.
Love it. It goes a long way and doesn't leave a greasy mess
Works perfectly with the Rock Blade for decreasing drag while allowing great soft tissue mobility!
