Got Tape?

Kinesiology tape is a phenomenal, and often under used tool to help relieve client pain, and as a self care tool for therapists.

The widespread use of kinesiology tape on professional athletes and physical therapy offices has made it much easier to talk to clients about. Aside from physical therapists, many massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and wellness workers have successfully incorporated it into their treatment plans to help alleviate pain, improve posture and stability.

It is also valuable as a self care tool to help with everything from hip and back pain to De Quervain’s thumb!
