Great for athletic injuries and chronic pain sufferers, kinesio taping increases blood flow and lymphatic drainage, allowing the body to repair and heal itself. This unique technique uses specialized tape that gently lifts the skin away from the underlying tissue while supporting the muscles and allowing unrestricted, full range of motion.
This method of supportive taping allows the body to move freely so you can continue your daily activities, while decreasing pain and minimizing damage to the tissue. The tape is water-resistant and can be worn for up to several days. Common conditions that are helped by the kinesio taping method are: shoulder pain, shin splints, knee pain, tendinitis, and chronic pain from surgeries and old injuries.
