Kinesio taping is originally a treatment developed
in Japan and is based on elastic tape. The tape affects the
body tissues through the skin by lifting and channeling the
metabolism. With kinesio tape you can ease pain, relax tense
muscles, decrease swelling and activate metabolism. Physiotherapists
use kinesio taping as a part of rehabilitation and you have
probably seen these tapings on the sports fields as a muscle
stimulators or pain relievers on injuries.
So if you have e.g. constant tense neck, your hand get tired
or numb for working on a keyboard, your shoulder is aching
or your knee is swollen and this bothers your everyday movements
- you should try kinesio tape!
