Invented by a Japanese chiropractor Kinesiology Tape was used as an alternative to other traditional treatment methods, that although provided support, restricted the movement of the body. He believed that the body would heal faster if it could move naturally and yet be supported.
By sticking the tape to the area in patterns tried and tested he proved just how powerful it was and how much it can improve injuries and other pain issues in a non-invasive way.
When applied correctly, the tape can prevent muscles from sending pain signals to the brain and greatly help the ﬂow of circulation and lymphatic ﬂuid. Made of a lightweight, thin, and ultra-stretchy blend of synthetic or cotton, its formulation and elastic versatility enables it to bind tightly to the body without being restrictive.
Kinesiology sports tape acts as a second skin giving you support, whilst the spandex gives ﬂexibility allowing you to move freely. This makes our tape an ideal alternative to a bandage or brace. Applying Kinesiology Sports tape “unstretched” to muscles or joints can help reduce swelling and pain.
