Kinesio Taping®

Kinesio Taping®The Kinesio Taping® technique and Kinesio Tex tape was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in Japan in 1973.

Traditional taping techniques, such as athletic taping and strapping, provided muscle and joint support, however, they reduced range of motion, did not support the fascia and, in many cases, inhibited the actual healing process of traumatised tissue.

Kinesio Taping® offers an exciting technology that assists in the healing of traumatised tissue by aiding the lymphatic and muscle systems, whilst still offering support and a full range of motion to the joints and muscles.

The Kinesio Taping® method involves taping over and around muscles to assist and give support and prevent over-contraction.
