History of kinesio taping

Kinesio taping was developed by Kenzo Kase in the late 1970s in Japan. He found that gentle skin movement had a positive effect on joint range of motion and pain. The aim was to continue the effect of the treatment after manual treatment. This idea led to the development of an elastic tape that is applied to the skin using various techniques.

The effect of the kinesio tape is based on the movement of the skin. The elastic kinesio tape controls the tissues with a pumping movement. The successive contractions and relaxations increase muscle metabolism, relieving pain. Kinesio taping supports the body's own healing process. The waviness of the adhesive surface allows air to pass between the skin and the tape, making the tape breathable and can be worn continuously for several days.
