Kinesio Taping

Developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase more than 25 years ago, the Kinesio Taping Method is utilized to reduce pain, improve circulation and healing, assist in re-educating the neuromuscular system and prevent injury.  Dr Kase developed a special elasticized tape for this purpose called Kinesio Tex Tape.  Unlike rigid athletic tapes, Kinesio Tex Tape may be applied in such a manner that it either facilitates or inhibits tissue tension.  The tape itself is Latex- free and can be worn for several says at a time. Very often we use it in conjunction with other treatment modalities to optimize an individuals rehabilitation process.

A practitioner, such as Jill, is optionally certified in Kinesio Taping techniques has attended at least three days of classes that consist of written and practical exercises as well as taking a special written examination to be passed at no less than 80%.
