Benefits of Kinesiology Tape:
- Reduces spot-specific inflammation
- Speeds recovery of overused muscles
- Prevents or relieves spasms and cramps
Tape application requires skilled hands to get the most benefit. Effects of Kinesotape are different depending on the direction and stretch of the tape or stretch of the skin. Research shows wearing kinesiology tape may improve circulation, and help heal and prevent muscle injury. It’s different from traditional athletic tape because it allows freedom of movement and blood flow to speed the healing process.
