What is kinesiology tape and how does it work: Kinesiology tape was founded by Japanese chiropractor Dr Kenzo Kase in the 1970's and is a thin, stretchy, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive. It is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles and increase a muscles range of motion. It is designed to improve the body's natural healing process by helping to increase blood flow around the muscle.
