Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Tape is a proven, safe and effective method that provides excellent results to eliminate pain and muscle discomfort for those illnesses and disorders which are not healed by other treatments. The name comes from the science of Kinesiology, because the taping method and tape allow the body and muscles to move while it assists in rehabilitation. Kinesio taping is effective is helping to direct lymphatic fluid when applied following lymphatic pathways it is a great adjunct to CDP.

There are no adverse side effects. The Kinesio Tape method must be applied by a trained therapist. The tape is placed over the muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, to relax overused muscles and to support muscles in movement. This is not a restrictive type of physical therapy taping, and allows for full range of motion. In contrast, traditional sports’ taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during a sporting event.

Kinesio Tape is used for anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in-between. The tape is water-proof and can be left on the skin for up to five days.
