The Magic of Voodoo Floss

The Quick Fix for most joint pain and those nagging soft tissue Injuries

Voodoo flossing or compression wrapping for joints can be magical.  It can be profoundly effective for Osteoarthritis, Tendinitis, Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Swelling.  Voodoo flossing has three primary uses. First, when combined with movement, the compression will release myofascial restrictions around the joint.  These restrictions tend to exacerbate joint pain when they are tight. Second, the compression will flush out any lymph or swelling in the joint, like squeezing a tube of toothpaste. Third it increases sliding surface area or unsticks matted down skin, nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and allows them to slide across each-other without getting glued down.   

Using Voodoo floss is a quick and easy way to reduce swelling and to help flush out waste. Voodoo Floss is a thin, very stretchable rubber band that can be tied/wrapped around swelling and force the waste/toxin to start moving out through the lymphatic system.

Voodoo Floss helps break up intramuscular fibrosis to allow for greater mobility and blood supply to an area. By squeezing the muscle in a tight wrap, then taking it through a full range of motion (ROM), friction between muscle fibers helps break up fixations, scar tissue, lactic acid and other restrictions in those tiny places that foam rolling lacrosse ball techniques and manual therapy can’t address.  Voodoo floss is applied for about two minutes.

When the band is released, a rush of blood washes through the muscle; this not only brings nutrients for growth and healing but also clears out all that waste product that were broken up. This is also true for injury recovery and can be used to aid the healing of strained tissue and for swollen areas, to promote lymphatic drainage.
