Kinesio Tape is an elastic tape used to support and stabilize the
muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is
useful in our massage therapy practice and your treatments, and it is a
treatment strategy that has worked well with many of the professional
athletes we’ve worked with over the years.
How might we use Kinesio Taping in your next session? We might use
the tape as a support for your poor posture or to help retrain a muscle
that isn’t firing (working) correctly. Kinesio Tape can re-educate the
nervous system to help unwind holding patterns. It can also be used to
support a joint or to reduce inflammation. Talk to us if you would like
to learn more about this taping technique. And don’t be surprised if we suggest some Kinesio Taping at your next massage treatment.
