BENEFITS OF KINESIOLOGY TAPING

Developed by Dr Kenso Kase the Kinesiology Tape provides several main functions
-Giving Muscle support
-Rehabilitating Ligaments & Tendons
-Mending & Correcting Joint problems
-Activating pain relief with the body Removing Congestion to the flow of body fluids

Prior to Kinesiology Tape, rigid taping was used to fix or hold problem areas in place with little or no movement
Kinesiology Taping is designed to flex with the body movement and therefore improve the healing process as well as giving support where needed. Good quality Kinesiology Tape should stretch both length ways as well as sideways

More recently Kinesiology Tape it is becoming ever more popular with athletes for the many benefits it provides
These are
-Reducing swelling & Inflammation
-Pain Relief
-Muscle Cramps
-Strength to injured or weak muscles & ligaments

'Support Guards Australia' has sourced the best quality tape to last longer and work better in its operation. It has excellent waterproof qualities so it is possible to use in water i.e. Swimming, intense sweating or while bathing/showering.
These are backed by our manufacturer with Quality Assurance & Conformity Certifications

This quality ensures our Kinesiology Tape stretches correctly unlike cheaper poor quality Kinesiology Tapes. Cheaper Kinesiology Tapes can either stretch with too much and do not give correct support at all or not enough and therefore restrict the muscle or ligament too much with no benefit. This can lead the the Kinesiology Tape being too uncomfortable and even fall off after a short time

Kinesiology Tape is applied several ways either in the following shapes/patterns I,V, X & Y

It is important that the Kinesiology Tape is applied correctly and in the right areas. We strongly recommend you get professional assistance in applying the Kinesiology Tape as incorrect Kinesiology Taping will have little of now benefit

It has been suggested that some colours vary in application but this is not the case. Each different colour has the same stretch qualities as each other. Although some colours can evoke different emotions within the athlete i.e. Blue has a calming affect, Beige & Black are neutral and Reds can evoke discomfort in one's mind.
'Support Guards Australia' Kinesiology Tape can be cut to your own desired lengths minimising waste. Handy grid backing paper makes this easy to do. We also suggest you round off the corners of each length you cut as sharp corners will lift and may cause the Kinesiology Tape to starting peeling off unnecssarily.
Note we also sell special Kinesiology Tape scissors, these have a titanium non stick blades which give you accurate cutting with a small nodule on the end of the bottom blade which stops digging into or scratching the skin.
