Kinesio Taping is a technique designed to work with the body’s natural healing process while providing rehabilitative support and stability to muscles and joints. It is used asprevention, treatment and rehabilitative purposes. Tape is strategically placed over muscles and joints. Application of it reduces pain by easing pressure on pain receptors and decreasing swelling by increasing fluid movement.

Unlike, bulky, elastic bandages, Kinesio tape is not used to limit movement or provide stiff support. It provides stability and movement together.
