Kinesiology Taping

  • Rock Tape, Kinesiology tape, or KT tape improves circulation and helps to cue and stimulate muscles' propioception. 

  • When the tape is applied, there is a microscopic lifting, or decompressing, between the skin, fascial, and muscle layers.

    • This lifting allows for increased blood flow and lymphatic flow, disperses swelling more quickly, and decreases pain signals.           

  • In addition to decompression, taping stimulates and potentiates proprioception.  This allows the muscles to function more properly, thus, optimizing performance, delaying muscle fatigue, and decreasing the risk of injury. 

  • Tape can also be utilized in the case of injury, especially to decrease pain and swelling. 

  • Taping can also normalize muscle tone and muscle activation patterns--taping can stimulate dormant muscles and relax overactive muscles.  This enables for effective postural corrections and rehabilitation as well as accelerated healing. 

  • In combination with other therapies such as chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, cupping, etc., taping is even more effective--creating a synergistic effect.

  • Taping is available as a stand-alone treatment or as a complement to another therapy.
