Kinesiology Tape - Rock TapeKinesio Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This effect provides superior lift for improved circulation of the lymph and blood. The end result is that pressure and irritation are taken off the neural and sensory receptors alleviating pain. It is an elite therapeutic and performance product that will allow superior results and benefits.
Strapping or Rock Taping creates a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism that lifts the skin away from the soft tissue underneath, which allows more blood to move into an injured area to accelerate healing, recovery and support.
Benefits of Kinesiology Tape:The key benefit of Kinesiology Tape is to reduce and prevent contraction of the affected muscle. It accomplishes this by helping to increase the natural blood flow around the muscle, facilitating the natural healing process.
It can be used to reduce localized swelling associated with surgery. To athletes, the real benefit is that it helps individuals continue with their normal daily routine and sports activities or speeds up the healing process so there’s less time spent on the sidelines.
Kinesio Taping is being used on Lance Armstrong, Serena Williams, David Beckam, Robby Ginepri and Justine Henin, not to mention the current crop of Olympiads including Martins Plavins and of course, Kerri Walsh.
In Lance Armstrong's book "Every Second Counts", he refers to Kinesio as "Something better than any laser, wrap, or electric massager...The Tape. It is a special hot-pink athletic tape that came from Japan and seemed to have special powers. Every morning before the stage, they would tape us all up, different parts of our bodies . . . George's back, Chechu's knees. Sometimes we'd be so wrapped up in hot-pink tape that we'd look like dolls, a bunch of broken dolls. But the next day the pain disappeared -- it was gone."
