Kinesiotaping

A Therapeutic and Sports Taping Breakthrough

Kinesio taping is the fastest growing taping technique in the world. The Kinesio Taping applications provides pain relief and can substantially reduce recovery times and improve fitness levels. You will see athletes, footballers, golfers and cyclists all wearing the tape.

Kinesio Taping is a therapeutic application that is designed to assist muscle movement, correct muscle function, improve circulation, reduce edema and inflammation, and correct muscle joint misalignments. Taping stabilises the injured area by taking pressure off the area and sensory receptors.

This, in turn, helps to alleviate pain at rest and during movement. The real benefit of Kinesio Taping is that it allows you to continue with your normal daily routine and sports activities as well as speeding up the healing process.

The elastic properties of the tape, combined with the application techniques, allow the tape to lift the skin microscopically; this unique effect not only helps to alleviate pain, but also enhances circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Physiological Effects of Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Tape is not used as a substitute for treatment. It’s used more as another tool in the treatment toolbox and something that can be done at the end of a treatment in order to enhance the work done in that session and to extend the benefits you have gained during your treatment session.

  • Relieves pain
  • Supports muscles in movement
  • Removes lymphatic fluid congestion
  • Corrects joint misalignment
  • Assists a weak muscle by placing it in a normal position
  • Improves kinesthetic awareness of posture and alignment
