RockTape (my favorite brand, as well as the brand we use in our office) is a type of kinesiology tape that was developed by a triathlete! If … Continue reading Lets talk taping!
If you're ever south of rochester or are in the mood for a less than 45 minute drive, then you have to try Ember Woodfire Grill in Livonia, NY.
