Kinesio Tape

Rock Tape

The Kinesio taping method, is a rehabilitative technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. It also provides extended soft tissue manipulation, to prolong the benefits of manual therapy.

Kinesio tape is almost identical to human skin, in both thickness and elasticity. It is a thin stretchy elastic cotton strip, with an acrylic adhesive. This allows it to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of your movements.

When the tape is applied it forms convolutions and wrinkles this decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin, this in turn helps improve blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area. Increasing the slide and glide between tissue layers. Improving body awareness and the perception of pain.

Theraputic kinesio tape can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries plus inflammatory conditions. and a variety of physical disorders.
