Kinesio Taping – From -£20
This is the brightly coloured magical tape that you may have seen on professional athletes.
The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Both Kinesio Tex Tape and the training protocol have shown results that would have been unheard of using older methods and materials. In contrast, more traditional sports tape is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during an athletic event. Kinesio Tex Tape is used to treat anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between.
A Kinesio Taping session takes approximately 30 minutes, and the application can be worn for upto 5 days.
