The Kinesio Tex Tape Story

Already in use for over 30 years, Kinesio Tex Tape gained worldwide attention at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where numerous athletes sported the colorful sports tape on various parts of their bodiesand started a worldwide search for Kinesio Tape information. Since then, Kinesio Tape has become a favorite of both amateur and professional athletes around the world to recover from injuries with less down time and loss of function. In the medical field, KinesioTape and the Kinesio Taping Method are now used in therapy clinics, chiropractic offices and hospitals as part of a therapeutic regimen after injuries, illnesses or surgery. KinesioTape has the same thickness and elasticity as human skin. It is very stretchable, with 140% elasticity--which makes it comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time. Therapeutically, Kinesio Tex Tape, can relieve pain from both acute injuries and chronic conditions, as well as reduce swelling and inflammation. The Kinesio Taping Method™ is an approach to therapeutic taping that involves taping over and around muscles and joints, rather than wrapping them tightly as conventional athletic taping does. This increases circulation to the injured area, as well as lymphatic drainage, which reduces swelling, bruising and pressure on sensitive pain receptors. When worn continuously, Kinesio Tape can accelerate the healing process and limit down time. The elasticity of KinesioTape allows it to provide support without restricting range of motion, an important feature for injured athletes who wish to continue training as they recover from their injuries. Kinesio Tape is made of 100% high grade cotton for comfort and breathability, and contains no latex or medications. The backing contains a light, medical-grade adhesive made of 100% hypoallergenic acrylic. The adhesive is heat-activated – simply apply to the skin and rub briskly to activate. It is easily removed and leaves no sticky residue. Moisture dissipates quickly through the porous material of the tape, allowing it to withstand sweating, showering and even swimming without coming off or irritating skin. Unlike traditional athletic tape, most Kinesio Tape applications can be worn for 3-5 days. This allows the therapeutic benefits to continue, 24 hours per day.

CureTape Medical Taping Concept Handbook With DVD

$79.99

The MTC Handbook by sports and pediatric physiotherapist practitioner and lecturer Harry Pijnappel is a comprehensive manual that covers the theory and practical applications of the Muscular Taping Concept style of taping. MTC is derived from the original Asian methods of kinesiology taping, but has its own unique applications due to the methods that have been refined as medical research and practical knowledge in kinesiology taping methods has grown.

MTC focuses on stimulating regeneration and self-healing in muscles, joints, organs, and the neurological/circulatory systems without restricting freedom of movement in any way. This book begins with the overview of the principles of the Medical Taping Concept including how kinesiology taping works specifically to combat pain, itching, and swelling and continues to detail how it provides support to muscles and joints. There is a general section detailing common tape cuts and applications with their uses, but the majority of the book is dedicated to the in-depth illustrations and step-by-step instructions for specific applications from TMJ in the jaw to Hammer Toe in the foot. Also included is a DVD that provides even more instruction for applications to add to what is available in the book.

*This book is written to be easy to understand, but does include medical terminology that may be difficult for introductory users.
