What are the basics that I should know about when it comes to kinesiology taping?

Kinesiology taping is a simple and effective way to relieve pain and discomfort from everyday life. It’s a tape made from a combination of cotton, spandex, and adhesive that reflects the same thickness and elasticity as your skin!

How does kinesiology taping work?

Once applied, kinesiology tape recoils slightly, gently lifting your skin; this helps to create a microscopic space between your skin and the tissues underneath it, decompressing the agitated area and ultimately providing the relief you’ve been longing for. 

Kinesiology tape also may help improve circulation and reduce swelling in the area it’s applied to!

Can anyone use kinesiology tape? What can it treat?

Yes! Though, kinesiology tape has continued to grow in popularity among those suffering from sports-related injuries or musculoskeletal discomfort. 

In addition to sports-related injuries and musculoskeletal discomfort, kinesiology taping can support weak areas in the body, help correct posture by re-educating your muscles, and more. Many athletes even use it as a precaution to help protect against injury!

Please feel free to contact us; we can walk you through the entire process of kinesiology taping from beginning to end.
