What are all those colorful strips of tape we see on professional athletes these days? Its called Kinesio Tape. It was developed in the 1970’s by a Japanese chiropractor, Kenzo Kase, and came to the states in the mid 1990’s. It has been used widely on athletes and has proven very effective for a variety of  situations such as  pain, fatique and swelling. But you do not need to be a professional athlete or even a week-end warrior to utilize the benefits of Kinesio-Tape. Remember”Life’s A Sport”.

Kinesio-Tape is a modality used for an acute or sub acute injury. Also as a rehabilitative modality or a chronic condition. It enchances the function of many different tissues and physiologic systems. The best benefit is that it helps to return the body to homeostatis….back to a healthy state!!!

Gail Mangold C.M.T. is now applying Kinesio-Tape on her clients and reporting terrific results…so give it a try. You have nothing to lose..except your pain.
