Kinesiology Taping

 

Unlike standard strapping tape that is rigid and aims to prevent movement, kinesiology taping uses a stretchy and flexible tape to provide the body with support and stability, without affecting range of motion. Kinesiology taping can also be used to promote increased blood flow, assist the lymphatic system in removal of metabolic waste, reduce muscle vibration on damaged tissue and encourage correct muscle firing. Kinesiology taping can be particularly effective to reduce bruising and swelling and to aid in the healing of the damaged tissue.
