Kinesiology Taping (KT) is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to provide to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. It does not restrict the body’s range of movement and by providing extended soft tissue manipulation, it prolongs the benefits from your sports massage therapy and physiotherapy.

KT Tape is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, external support that helps you remain active while recovering from injuries. KT Tape creates neuromuscular feedback/proprioception that inhibits (relaxes) or facilitates stronger firing of muscles and tendons.

Benefits include:

  • Latex free and wearable for 3-4 days
  • Waterproof
  • Reduces pain by lifting the skin off of the pain receptors
  • Provides support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting range of movement
  • Lightweight and comfortable to wear

Common applications include:

  • Shin Splints
  • Ankle stability
  • Rotator cuff and Shoulder stability
  • Golfer and Tennis Elbow
  • Osgood Schlatters
  • Knee stability

If you require a number of muscles/soft tissues taped for a specific event for example, we offer a 30 minute session to cover this, however if you would like to add it on along with a sports or deep tissue session, we charge an additional £5 on top of your treatment price. Just let your therapist know beforehand or when booking so time is left at the end of the session.
