Ease pain and enhance performance
Kinesiology taping may be a very effective way to ease symptoms of many injuries and can be used during the acute, sub acute and chronic stages of healing. It may also enhance athletic performance and can even stay on through sweating, sport and swimming. As a certified FMT (Fascial Movement Taping) Roc Doc, I use Rocktape Kinesiology tape.
Who Is It For?
Kinesiology taping is used on anyone from office workers and athletes to pregnant ladies.
Please note: If the area to be taped is quite hairy, then please shave or wax, ideally a couple of days before you are taped.
How Does It Work?
Special hypoallergenic elastic adhesive tapes are used on the muscles or joints, increasing stability, but at the same time, allowing circulation and allowing the body to continue to move through its full range of movement. The tape feels surprisingly comfortable too.
The protective tape may provide support in prevention, treatment and rehabilitation by:
- supporting an injured area and preventing further injury e.g. in the case of strains and sprains
- decompressing swollen areas
- facilitating a weak muscle
- inhibiting tired or overactive muscles.
- aiding lymphatic drainage and reducing oedema
- correcting postural imbalances or gait problems
- giving you confidence when you return to activity
- releasing restrictions in the fascia or connective tissues and easing pain
Why Maria Pali?
I will give you the reassurance that correct taping techniques have been used. I have a thorough understanding of anatomy and movement and hold qualifications in taping and strapping techniques and am a certified RocDoc.
The tension that is used when applying the tape is also important. Taping can support a weak muscle or joint or act to decompress the area to relieve pain and swelling.
Kinesiology taping in pregnancy
Kinesiology tape can be used in the case of common aches, pains and strains associated with pregnancy. Taping can be used with postural control, especially to give maximum support in late pregnancy. More information on kinesiology taping in pregnancy can be found on the pregnancy massage page.
