No surgery. No casts. And almost no instruments. Only tape.
Kinesio tape lifts skin by the tiniest microscopic increment. When applied by the Body Mosaic, the taping allows for greater lymphatic drainage, increased circulation and decreased inflammation. It’s exceedingly pliable and able to be applied in any configuration for an unending list of soft-tissue discomforts.
Best yet, Kinesio taping can help anyone: its soft, cotton fibers are 100% latex-free, making it hypoallergenic. It’s water-resistant and doesn’t impede movement. It’s an easy, accessible solution that works seamlessly with other treatments for optimal results.
How Does Kinesio Tape Work?
The Kinesio Taping Method is different from strapping tape and the traditional McConnell Taping Method in several important ways.
- McConnell Tape is a stiff, sticky tape that is applied for a shorter duration of time, sometimes less than one day.
- The McConnell Taping Method tapes body parts to affect a specific biomechanical movement such as patellar tracking.
- Athletic strapping tape is used primarily to restrict range of motion and to limit muscle movement, creating a sort of bridge over injured areas of the body to provide support during athletic performance such as a football game.
- Kinesio tapes believed to alter the information that is sent to the brain. It causes a less sensitive reaction in the body, effectively removing some of the body’s barriers to healing.
