Kinesio Tape is designed to be worn for 3-5 days. An hour after application it will withstand athletic activity and showering without coming off. The water resistant type should be used for hands and feet and it is also useful for people who regularly take part in sporting activities.

Kinesio Tape is made from cotton with a hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive. It contains no latex or medications, decreasing the likelihood of skin irritation. Individuals with extremely sensitive skin, however, may still experience rash, itching or irritation. Remove immediately if any irritation is noted!
Remove tape in the direction of hair growth, which is usually away from the centre of the body on the trunk, and in a downward direction on the arms or legs. To minimize discomfort, press the skin at the end of the taped area while gently peeling tape back. Tape that is still strongly adhered to skin may be loosened by soaking with baby oil, vegetable oil for 5-10 minutes before removing.
Kinesio Tex Tape is made from a very thin, porous, 100% cotton fabric. It has a medical grade heat-activated adhesive. It is non-medicated and latex free - making it very skin friendly.
Without getting too technical, the tape is applied over the affected area with the muscles in a stretched position. Then the tape is applied from one end of the muscle to the other with very little to no stretch on the tape itself. The tape is applied from the ORIGIN to INSERTION of the muscle for SUPPORT and from INSERTION to ORIGIN for REHABILITATION.
Without a doubt, the technique is the most important aspect in achieving the greatest therapeutic results.

Kinesio Taping can work well for children, even young children.

Take extra care when removing the tape and test on a small area before applying applications for longer periods of time.
Kinesio Taping for sports injury and physiotherapy should only be applied under the guidance/advice of a practitioner.
