Different from the tape athletic trainers and physiotherapists use, Kinesiotex tape (Roc Tape; KT Tape; SpiderTec Tape; Cure Tape; etc.) is unique. It has a special weave and tension that assists with pain relief, swelling and retraining muscles.
Sprains, strains, bruising and swelling all heal faster when the KinesioTex tape is worn.
The tape is 100% cotton, uses an acrylic adhesive (not latex!) and is water resistant. It usually lasts on the body anywhere from 3-5 days, depending on how much oil is in your skin. Removal of the tape is as simple as soaking it with oil and slowly peeling it off your skin.
Please contact Cynthia for a consult to see if Kinesiotex tape will help you with your recovery.
