Kinesiology taping is a non-pharmaceutical therapy method that has become increasingly popular and is being incorporated as an important component of physiotherapy treatments. It involves the use of specially designed elastic tape with water resistant and breathable properties that enable long wearing and comfort. The elasticity of the tape allows it to stretch and move with your body, like a human muscle. Your muscles are not only responsible for body movement but also help regulate blood circulation, lymph blow, body temperature, etc.
The tape is applied over the muscles in order to reduce pain and inflammation, to reduce muscle tension, and to provide support and stability to your joints and muscles while maintaining your full mobility. The special application technique also raises the skin, creating more space between damaged tissues. This improves the flow of lymph fluid and blood circulation, which stimulates the healing process.
