“This is not just tape… it is a special tape, with magic powers”

Lance Armstrong

You can receive the same advanced therapeutic procedure that Olympic and professional athletes receive for their pains, misalignments and injuries. KinesioTape was invented by a Japanese chiropractor to help support and strengthen the body’s natural healing properties.

Kinesio-Tape Benefits:

  1. REDUCES PAIN by causing the body to release Endorphins and Enkephalins (the body’s natural pain relievers).
  2. HELPS ADJUSTMENTS HOLD by gently supporting the area.
  3. REDUCES SWELLING by improving lymphatic flow.
  4. REDUCES MUSCLE SPASM by reducing muscle fatigue and over contraction.

Kinesio-Tape Instructions:

  1. Shower and bathe as usual and simply pat the KinesioTape with a towel.
  2. Do not rub with a towel. Do not dry with a blow dryer.
  3. Ice can be applied over the tape for additional relief.
  4. The tape is not magnetic or medicated.However, a very small percentage of patients may experience sensitivity or allergic reaction to the glue.Remove the tape, should any problems develop.
  5. Mild itching can be a sign of increased blood flow, and should not be mistaken for an allergic reaction. Leave the tape on as long as you can.It should begin to come off as the outer skin layer naturally sloughs off, about two to seven days.
