Kinesio Taping at Chichester Sports Massage
What is Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio Taping is a technique that is designed to help the body's natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion. It can also provide extended soft tissue manipulation in order to prolong the benefits of your Sports Massage.
Benefits of Kinesio Taping
Kinesio Taping method is a therapeutic taping technique which offers support and also helps rehabilitate the affected area. By targeting different receptors, it can alleviate pain and also facilitate lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin and this in turn forms convolutions in the skin which increases the interstitial space and allows for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
Kinesio Taping and Massage
We always find that Kinesio taping works best when done in tandem with massage therapy. The massage helps to release the surrounding massage tension and the taping then helps to re-train the muscle tension and stabilise the joints.
