What is Kinesio Taping ?
Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the natural healing process of the body. The tape, strategically placed over and around specific areas of injury or sprain provides support and stability for muscles and joints without restricting the body’s natural range of movement. The kinesio taping provides soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of sports massage therapy, provided in my clinic
Kinesio taping will assist you greatly whilst you heal. It will help to keep you pain free and comfortable. Kinesio Taping also helps with lymphatic drainage, which is facilitated during your sports massage therapy treatments. It lifts the skin in the most subtle way and facilitates a decrease in inflammation in the affected areas of the body.
Further benefits of kinesio taping are that it will help with subtle changes to the fascia or tissue network (essential for optimal movement) and ease the tendons and muscles, providing an improved range of movement during the recovery process.
Before applying kinesio taping as a part of your sports massage therapy treatments, we will schedule a thorough examination of your gait and posture so that you are primed more optimally for both your sport, work and everyday activity.
