Kinesio Taping

What is Kinesio Taping?

Kinesio taping is a stabilizing method used to help improve the body’s natural healing process by supporting and increasing stability to muscles and joints, using a specialized elastic adhesive tape that was first developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in 1979. The tape is latex-free, hypoallergenic and can be kept in place comfortably for extended periods. Unlike the typical methods for stabilizing injuries, such as wrapping, treatment does not affect your range of motion or impede circulation in the area that is being treated. Kinesio taping is also used by athletes to prevent injury and to reduce post-activity swelling. Many athletes use this method of taping to improve their overall performance and for optimum recovery after activity.

Kinesio taping is beneficial if you suffer from:

Taping effectively alleviates pain and promotes lymphatic drainage by gently lifting the skin. In addition to being hypoallergenic, the tape is water-resistant and can be worn for multiple days at a time before requiring replacement.
