Kinesio Tape (Rock Tape) works to relieve inflammation and promotes blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Poor blood flow and a buildup of fluid compresses the nerves and causes pain throughout the body. The kinesio tape gently lifts the skin away from pain receptors allowing the body to heal. Although it contains no medications or topical substances, kinesio tape can effectively relieve both acute and chronic pain.
Despite the name Rock Tape, it is incredibly flexible which allow it to provide support to injured muscles or joints without restricting range of motion.
