What is kinesio taping?

Kinesio taping provides both therapeutic and rehabilitative treatment of muscular disorders as well as the management of lymphedema and chronic swelling.

Positively stimulating your body’s own natural healing response, kinesio taping not only compliments the manual therapy you receive from your osteopath or physiotherapist, but helps their good work to last longer.

The ‘kinesio method’ involves taping over and around muscles to provide support as well as prevent over-contraction. The tape is also applied with easy movement in mind, and can be worn all day, usually for up to five days. Much like human skin, Kinesio tape is thin, pliable and stretchy. Best of all, the tape’s elastic cotton material is comfortable to wear, no matter how active you are.

How can kinesio taping help me?

Kinesio taping promotes increased fluid flow through an injured area, better control over muscle contractions, reduced pain, and ultimately faster healing. Since the tape is applied to stimulate healing, it is most effective when used at the beginning of treatment, but nevertheless it is useful during the entire rehabilitation process.
