Kinesio Taping®

Kinesio Taping® is a specialized rehabilitative taping technique used to facilitate healing and provide support to muscles, tendons and joints without restricting range of motion. This technique can be used for orthopedic, neuromuscular and neurological conditions to produce positive physiological effects on skin, lymphatic system, circulatory system and fascia.
