Kinesiology Taping utilises a stretchy adhesive tape over the skin as a therapeutic modality to encourage the body’s own healing process.
Some of its many functions:
Supports muscle: improves muscle contraction in a weakened muscle, reduces muscle fatigue, and excessive extension and contraction of the muscle. It can improve the ranges of motion in the muscle and relieves pain.
Removes congestion of body fluids: By laying the tape on the skin it can improve lymphatic flow and subcutaneous blood flow thereby reducing inflammation and pain.
Correct joint problems: normalises muscle tone and abnormal fascia in joints, improves ranges of motion and relieves pain.
