Kinesio-taping is a new and highly effective technique using a highly elastic and unique adhesive tape to support muscles and joints without adversely affecting circulation or range or movement. Kinesio-tape is applied over muscles to, enhance performance, relieve pain and inflammation, relax overused muscles, stimulate weak muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24 hours/day basis.
Kinesio-tape is latex-free and waterproof meaning it can be worn for days at at time from a single application. Unlike more conventional taping Kinesio-tape will not restrict function or movement and in fact works with the body to improve muscle function and increase blood / lymphatic flow.
Although Kinesio-tape as a product is highly user friendly and comfortable to wear it must be applied correctly by a trained therapist in order to achieve effective results. At Physio Effect our therapists are trained in its’ use and Danny Wray has been officially taught and certified in New Zealand as a Kinesio Tape Practitioner so you can be sure you’re in good hands.
