It’s called Voodoo Floss because it is used to help fix or minimize pain symptoms related to soft tissue and soft-tissue injuries. In my case, I have tendonitis in both elbows, because I’m trying to learn gymnastics with a very intense coach. … This is where we get to the name. There is compression. There’s an aspect of potentially myofascial release … there are so many factors at play that they just say, “It’s voodoo.” … What I like about it is that it literally fits in the palm of my hand when it’s rolled up, so this, along with the mic, I can throw into a backpack.
