Kinesio taping began to unveil itself around 2008 when the general public noticed Olympic and professional athletes wearing colored strips of tape on their bodies. At first thought to be markings of some type of tattoo or marketing message, the public soon learned that these pieces of tape were thoughtfully placed in a certain pattern on the athlete’s body as part of their muscle treatment and to aid performance.

“Most that I’ve applied kinesio taping notice a change in the treated area within 24 hours.”
Carrie Hendrick, Ph.D., Certified Athletic Trainer

How Kinesio Taping Works

Traditionally, muscle injuries were dealt with by confining or limiting movement of the injured muscles. In some instances, tape was applied to injuries in a wrapping method meant to immobilize the injured muscle; however, this would also slow circulation and the body’s healing process. Medical science has now shown that moving muscles improves circulation which accelerates healing and can reduce pain. This science is the basis of the Kinesio Taping Method. Fundamentally, the application of Kinesio Tape lifts the skin and tissues that cover a muscle allowing better circulation around the muscle; yet it is applied in a way to also stabilize.
