What do Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Lleyton Hewitt, and Tiger Woods all have in common? They use Kinesio® Taping to keep them performing at their peak in their sport. Developed more than 30 years ago by a Japanese chiropractor, Kinesio® Tape is used to give support after an injury and during rehabilitation to prevent overuse. It is also now widely used by top athletes at major sporting events including Wimbledon and the Olympic Games.
Uses and benefits of Kinesiology Tape:
- Reduces pain
- Enhances performance
- Prevents injury
- Promotes improved circulation and healing
- Helps prevent muscle cramping and lactic acid buildup
Different to traditional taping, Kinesiology Tape works with the body to allow for full range of movement. The body’s damaged tissue can rest and heal naturally despite continued use. The tape is 100% cotton which means it is breathable and lasts several days through sweating, bathing and even swimming.
Kinesiology Tape must be applied by a professional who is trained. Robert Turner, head massage therapist at Active Body Therapies, is certified in Kinesio Taping (KT1 & KT2) with Kinesio Taping Association International. He has also completed Kinesiology Taping training with Rocktape.
Active Body Therapies uses and stocks Rocktape.
