Kinesio TapingKinesio Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name “Kinesio”. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscle to function properly includes various kinds of symptoms.

Kinesio Taping is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24 hour per day basis. It is a non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion.
