Kinesiology Taping (KT Taping)

Kinesiology taping is a treatment designed to enable more effective blood flow and facilitate lymphatic drainage, in turn helping to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.  Kinesiology tape is an adhesive tape which is designed to replicate the functions of the human skin in terms of its thickness and elasticity, which allows kinesio tape to be worn without restricting movement.

This means that kinesio tape is ideal for helping the natural healing process, providing support for the fascia, muscles and joints. This, in turn, helps heal the soft tissues and the nerves.

What are the benefits of kinesiology taping?

Kinesio taping improves blood flow by microscopically lifting the skin, which increases the space within the subcutaneous tissues layers below. This allows for a more effective flow of blood and lymphatic fluid, decreasing inflammation, alleviating discomfort and aiding the rehabilitation and healing of a joint or muscle.

Kinesio taping has the following benefits:

  • Reduction of pain

  • Reduction of inflammation, swelling, bruising and scar tissue (by increasing lymphatic drainage).

  • Improvement of muscle function.

  • Improvement of joint stability and proprioception
