Kinesiology Power Taping
Kinesio Taping is based on the concept of muscles acting as a chain. It is used to enhance rehabilitation and performance through stimulating the skin and fascia with a flexible tape.
The tape is a thin, stretchy, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive that can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries, another benefit is helping reduce effects of inflammatory conditions.
Kinesiology tape is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows kinesio tape to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of your movement.
Kinesiology tape is used for treating athletic injuries and a variety of physical disorders too. For the first decade after its introduction, practitioners in Japan were the main users of the therapeutic kinesiology tape. By 1988 the tape had been adopted by Japanese Olympic and professional athletes before spreading across the world.
