Kinesio Taping® is used to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.
The tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas. Kinesio Tex Tape® can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to reduce pain and inflammation, optimize performance, prevent injury, and promote good circulation and healing.
The tape can be used on people in all stages of life from pediatrics, prenatal, to the elderly. It lasts for an average of 2-5 days providing 24 hour support, and even stays on in the shower or pool.
