Kinesio Taping is an elastic therapeutic taping method that relieves pain & facilitates healing of injured & damaged soft tissue (fascia & muscle). Kinseio Taping consists of the proprietary Kinesio Tex Tape and the Kinesio Taping Method. It is a stand alone and complimentary modality that allows us to treat a wide range of injuries using a tool that mimics our manual therapies or our "hands." The tape provides immediate pain relief with an increase in range of motion, increase in postural stability, and improved drainage & circulation of bodily fluids. In 2001, we were one of the first massage clinics in Hawaii to use Kinesio Taping as part of our therapy and have led the way ever since.
The Kinesio Tex Tape works mechanically and manually assists the body's own natural healing process with its cotton elastic stretch and wave patterned adhesive design. The design of the tape lifts the skin and creates more space in the soft tissue it is applied over which relieves pain by taking pressure of the nerves in the skin & fascia.
The Kinesio Taping Method is collection of taping solutions for a wide range of injuries from sprained ankles, muscle strains, to complex postural tapings that improve dynamic movement & stability.
