The technique uses a special adhesive, highly elastic, latex free cotton tape. Used with Kinesio® Taping applications, it can greatly aid flow of lymphatic fluid, muscle disorders and joint dysfunction – alleviating pain, enhancing performance, and facilitating rehabilitation. It encourages full bio-mechanical range of movement whilst relieving lymphatic congestion to the distressed areas, which enhances the body’s natural healing process.
Kinesio Tex tape can be worn 24 hours a day for up to 5 days due to its breathable cotton fabric.
It is greatly used in the world of sports and now making its way into Europe. It is very different from regular taping techniques as it allows the athlete to continue with activity. This is done through specific tape application by the practitioner.
