Kinesio Taping Bath
Kinesio tape is used in many ways to help reduce pain, soft tissue injury, facilitate feedback and ability to get back to exercise, sport and to help offload a muscle or joint.
Benefits of Kinesio Tape
K-Tape on the skin can interfere with painful signals which are directed to the brain.
When the signals arriving to the brain are altered, it does not produce the sensation of pain. Therefore it helps to change how your body interprets pain, turning down the pain “volume” that your body hears.
Reduces swelling and inflammation
When K-Tape is applied to the skin, it has a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. This allows the by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly.
Research has shown that K-Tape on skin can attenuate muscle fatigue.
Helps muscle tone
When someone is injured, fatigued, sick, or inflamed, the symphony of muscle action that normally takes place with great accuracy often falls out of tune. This can happen all over the body.
K-Tape helps bring dormant muscle back to life and help calm down the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, hence allowing it to heal properly.
Distributes physical stress
K-Tape allows full movement of a taped area. Through elastic properties and quick recoil, K-Tape can help distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones.
