What Is Kinesio Tape?
Kinesio tape is a type of body tape that, when applied properly, gently lifts the top layer of the skin. This lifting helps fluids, such as lymphatic fluid and blood, flow more freely around the affected areas. Kinesio tape has the same approximate elasticity as human skin.
Circulation is improved, and the body flushes out toxins, waste, lymphatic fluid, and lactic acid more easily in areas assisted by the tape. In addition, inflammation and nerve issues are often improved.
The Kinesio Taping Method was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in the 1970s. For the past 40+ years, Dr. Kase and other practitioners have refined the Kinesio technique and technology. Kinesio tape has been used for everything from sports medicine, to repetitive stress injuries, to arthritis.
