What is Kinesio taping?
Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique, which has been developed to super charge the body’s natural healing process. It provides support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It also provides extended soft tissue manipulation, which prolongs the benefits of Sports and Deep Tissue Massage.
Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio Tape is a safe, reliable treatment for a a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.
By targeting different receptors, within the somatosensory system, Kinesio Tape alleviates pain. It also facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. The lifting affect makes convolutions in the skin thereby increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation.
Kinesio Tape can be applied in many different ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, improve sports performance, reduce susceptibility to injury and aids good circulation. The correct application requires the training and experience of a good Kinesio taping specialist.
