Kinesiology taping (or kinesio taping) is the application of a thin, stretchy, cotton-based therapeutic tape that can benefit a wide variety of injuries and inflammatory conditions. It is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows it to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of movement.

We use kinesiology taping in the clinic everyday with amazing instant pain-free or performance improving results. You won't believe how effective kinesiology taping is until you try it.
What is Kinesiology Tape?
Kinesiology tape differs. It has unique elastic properties that allows the kinesiology tape to provide dynamic support. This provides an almost second skin that protects your joints and muscles. Plus, due to its amazing elastic properties, kinesiology tape allows full motion of your body parts.
The theory behind utilizing kinesiology tape is based on the fact that muscles actually heal faster if they are kept mobile. Therapeutic placement of kinesiology tape opens up injured muscles and allows lymphatic fluid to flow around the damage tissue and cleanse it.
