Cupping and Kinesiology Tape: That bright, colorful tape you see athletes wear on TV can help relieve pain and swelling in muscles and joints. It can also provide structural support for an injured area. Your therapist will give you suggestions for managing your injury and a healthy return to activity.
Schedule as Therapeutic Massage for 30 minutes (although it may not take that long), and add a note in the Special Instructions. $55 or $15 added to any other massage.

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.
