Kinesiotaping

The Kinesio Taping Method

Kinesio Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique that not only provides pain relief but also provides support to your body & joints. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, Kinesio Tape relieves pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by the microscopic lifting of the skin.

This lifting effect – forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space and allowing the inflammation – if existent – of the affected areas to decrease. It also supports your joints and makes movement easier.

HOW IT WORKS

What is Kinesiotaping?

Kinesio Taping Method is a tapping technique used over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused muscles, and facilitate movement of muscles.

Because Kinesio Tape is a non-restrictive, highly elastic type of tape, it allows a full range of motion and function, unlike traditional sports tapes.It provides stabilization and support not only during sporting events, but also during daily activities.

Kinesio Tape is a multi-faceted technique that can be used to treat any head to toe injury!

"A longer-lasting effect"

Kinesio Tape is a "light mode." It works continuously in rehabilitative applications and can provide additional 2-3 days of relief after treatment.

Kinesio Tape does not mask symptoms, but instead promotes healing in a variety of ways. Because your therapist is unable to provide you with treatment and hands on approach at all times,

Kinesio Taping is like having healing hands on the wounded area 24-7.
