Kinesiology Taping (KT) is a service which can be included in your treatment and demonstrations of application shown to provide a therapeutic and assistive element to soft tissue therapy / mobilisations.
Designed to provide support and stability to muscles and joints, without creating a restrictive element on both motion and circulation, KT enhances the natural healing process of the soft tissue structures of the body to enhance your therapy session as well as overall movement post treatment / activity.
With extensive research and continuous development within the sciences of KT, an understanding of physiological contributors have been recognised with KT and its impact on performance pre-, during-, and post- activity as well as injury prevention and rehabilitation assistance.
- Creating space in Joints
- Changing Pain Pathways and physiological signals
- Improve Circulation of blood flow and fluids
The method of tape application completes the above through targeting various somatosensory receptors alleviating pain and facilitating lymphatic drainage, creating a “lifting” effect where an interstitial space is created allowing a decrease in inflammation and increased circulatory affect.
