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.
