Kinesiology Tape

 Kinesiology Tape - the multiple application tape

  • supports "over" worked muscles and joints
  • improves muscle function
  • offers pain relief
  • aids the lymphatic system


Kinesiology tape is a cotton tape, which stretches along its length but not width ways.  This direction of stretch gives Kinesiology tape it's properties and lends it's self to the four application techniques.

  • muscle technique - used to increase or decrease muscle tension, leading to improved performance, pain reduction and reduces recovery times
  • ligament technique - used to support injured ligaments and tendons, reducing pressure and pain
  • mechanical techniques:-
    • functional - correcting abnormal bony positions
    • fascia - correcting adhesions within muscle fascia
  • lymphatic technique - to increase the space between the skin and subcutaneous tissue making it easier for the lymph fluid to flow out of the interstitial space, resulting in better mobility of filaments between the initial lymph vessel endothelium cells and the elastic fibres within the connective tissue

The four colours - red, blue, black and beige are identical in strength, length and manufacture.  The colours are used as "aide memoirs".

  • blue to reduce tension, cool
  • red to enhance
  • black for sport
  • beige for facial applications

Kinesiology tape is waterproof, breathable and hypoallergenic.  The medical grade acrylic glue used makes the Kinesiology tape stable enough to be worn for upto 7 days.
