KInesiology Taping Techniques

There are 5 main techniques used in Kinesiology Taping
  1. Muscle Technique
  2. Pain relief Technique
  3. Lymphatic Technique
  4. Fascia Technique
  5. Correctional Technique
Muscle: The main principle of application of Kinesiology Tape in the muscle technique is that the muscle is stretched not the tape.


Tissue Lift: The main feature of this technique is the high degree of stretch applied to the Kinesiology tape, in order to create a strong lifting effect of the underlying tissue.  The degree of stretch to tape is often between 75% and 100% stretch.  The tissue is in the neutral position.


Lymphatic Technique: The main principle of the lymphatic fan application is to create a fan of Kinesiology tape (with little or no tension) covering an area of inflamed tissue to enhance drainage, usually in the direction of a lymph node.


Fascia: The main principle of this technique is to create a gentle repositioning of the fascia to improve function. In this case the Levotape is applied with a gentle stretch of between 25% and 50%.


Correctional Technique:  The main principle behind the correctional techniques is to create a strong repositioning of tissues and structures. This tends to be achieved by using 50-75% stretch on the Kinesiology tape.


At times combinations of these techniques may be used as is the case in the Achilles tendon method.
