I am proud to announce February's special:
Get a FREE Kinesio Taping application with all treatments. This add on is typically $15, so take advantage of this unique and powerful rehab tool!
Kinesio Tape, a type of elastic therapeutic tape, is the first of its kind. It is non-medicated, stretchy tape, which, when applied with specific tension, placement, and cut, can support muscles, joints and connective tissues during the healing process. Athletes and non-athletes alike love it because it preserves range of motion, and doesn't compress your tissues like many other taping and strapping techniques. Its effect is profound when applied correctly by someone with the right training.
As a teacher of Kinesio Tape (a Certified Kinesio Taping Faculty), I take special pride in the finer details of this modality. Applying the tape post-treatment offers the benefit of continued healing and support for several days after, as well as it being tailored to your specific needs.
Want to know more about Kinesio Tape? Where's the research, you say? A mountain of evidence has been compiled throughout the years as to the tape's effectiveness, and highly trained researchers continue to collect very convincing data. Much of it can be found online at kinesiotaping.com. Look under the "Research" tab on the homepage. If you have any questions, whether you have tried the tape or not, please contact me and I'll be happy to tell you more!
Interested in learning some hands on taping skills? Try one of my Certified Kinesio Taping Technician (CKTT®) workshops. In just two hours you can learn the technical skill of applying the tape, as well as supportive tapings for major joints, like the knee, low back, ankle and neck.
If you are a personal trainer or some other fitness pro, or a health professional of any stripe, go on to take the 4 hour advanced course and get CEUs!
Check out tapingworkshops.com for more info. The next workshop is February 11th.
OH, and did you know Kinesio Tape is made in Albuquerque, NM? Its inventor, Dr. Kenzo Kase, lives right here in the 505.
