Kinesio Taping / Taping T...

Elastic Therapeutic Tape, also called Kinesiology Tape, Kinesio Tape, K-Tape is a rehabilitative method used to facilitate the body's natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion. This method is felt to cause physiological effects on several body systems. Tapping is usually used by the physiotherapists to change Muscle Tone, Move Lymphatic Fluids, Correct Movement Patterns, and Improve Posture.

The process involves placing Strips of Special tape on ones body in Specific directions to help improve the mobility and support Joints, Muscles and Tendons. When the Tape is applied to ones body, it recoils slightly, gently lifting the skin. It is believed that this helps to create a microscopic space between your skin and the Tissues underneath it.


K-Taping can be applied in the shape of a "Y", "I", "X", "Fan", "Web" or "Donut". The selection of the shape depends upon the size of the affected muscle and the result one is trying to achieve.

"Y" Tape application is generally used to
  • a. Surround the target Muscle
  • b. Inhibit or Facilitate muscle stimuli
  • c. Should be 2 inches longer than the target muscle
"I" Tape application is generally used for
  • a. Surround the target Muscle
  • b. Inhibit or Facilitate muscle stimuli
  • c. Should be 2 inches longer than the target muscle
"X" Tape application is generally used when
  • a. The origin and the intersection of the target muscle change depending on movement e.g. the Rhomboids
  • "Fan" /"web" tape application is used for
  • a. Oedema (Web is different because the ends remain intact)
  • "Donut" tape application is used for:
    • a. Oedema (Use overlapping strips and the center is cut out over the area of focus)
