What is Kinesio Tape?

Kinesio Tape, also called Kinesio Tex Tape, is the original elastic adhesive tape developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in the early 1970s.

This original and revolutionary concept utilizes latex-free, hypoallergenic taping designed to be worn for days at a time. It is safe for all human populations: in sports medicine, from elite athletes to weekend warriors; in health care, from to geriatric and pediatric clients.

The application method – the tension (stretch), direction and placement – allows tape treatments to relax or stimulate muscles, but it is the tape itself that makes the method possible.

How Does the Kinesio Taping Method Work?

Kinesio Taping® is a time tested therapeutic method using a uniquely designed elastic tape designed specifically for the method. Kinesio is a modality that is based on the body’s own natural healing process. The Kinesio Taping Method exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems.

This method basically stems from recognizing the importance of body and muscle movement in rehabilitation and everyday life.

Muscles attribute not only to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of health maladies.

Kinesio Taping is a modality appropriate for any stage of your treatment plan for conditions such as: Acute, Sub-Acute, Rehabilitative, Chronic, Post-Surgical and Injury Prevention.
