What is Functional Taping?
We use a special tape (elastic and stretchable) that delivers non-medicated muscle and joint pain relief by providing support. At the same time, it increases blood circulation to facilitate rapid relief.
How does it work?
Overworked or injured muscles are usually inflamed, which causes it to push up and block the blood circulating between the upper muscle and skin layer, leading to pain. After stretching the tape and applying it, it will contract so it lifts the skin up, creating space for more blood to flow through. New blood supplies more oxygen to help with pain relief, soreness, cramping, sprains, and other injuries. Tape can also be used to support, stimulate, or inhibit muscle movement to protect weak or sprained/strained tissues.
