Kinesiology Therapeutic and Fascial Movement Taping
Kinesiology Therapeutic Taping is a Japanese therapeutic taping method founded by Dr. Kenzo Kase, D.C. Kinesiology Therapeutic Taping uses a unique light elastic tape that is non-restrictive, breathable, waterproof, and can be worn for up to five consecutive days. You may have seen some of your favorite Olympic and professional athletes, including Lance Armstrong, Serena Williams and Kerri Walsh using Kinesiology tape during their competitions.
Kinesiology tape is used for edema, inflammation and ecchymosis. It is also used to facilitate or inhibit muscle function, decrease pain as a secondary effect, improves facial movement, helps support muscles and joints, and assists in improved joint range of motion.
BioMechanix is pleased to offer full-body kinesiology therapeutic taping service to you.
