Kinesiology Tape

Our Kinesiology Tape Range

Kinesiology is a tape designed to enhance the body’s natural healing process whilst offering muscle and joint support and stability. It works by slightly lifting the skin away from the affected area to help alleviate pain, improve blood circulation and facilitate lymphatic drainage. Its many benefits include preventing injuries, easing pulled muscles and reducing swelling and bruising. Tiger K Tape, the kinesiology tape of professionals, is a recovery tape designed to facilitate these benefits. It has been used by Olympic venues at the London 2012 Games and used by professional sports teams including Harlequins RFC, England Netball, Norwich City FC and Watford FC

Kinesiology Tapes FAQs

The following information is not meant to be in any way prescriptive and is merely content that has been compiled to help you make an informed decision about which product could suit you. Please remember to contact your physician or sports medicine professional for proper, qualified guidance. For an overview of what Kinesiology tape is, what it can be used for, how to use it and product recommendations please take a look at our Kinesiology Tape Buyers Guide

Is athletic tape the same as Kinesiology Tape?

Athletic Tape and Kinesiology Tape are distinctly different, athletic tape is distinguishable by its plain white colour and Kinesiology Tape has a range of colours but typically comes in bright colours. Athletic tape is used when the aim is to restrict movement, it is thick and usually tightly wrapped. Therefore, the compression restricts blood flow. Kinesiology tape on the other hand aims to maintain a normal range of motion so it is used less as a preventative measure and more as a treatment for pain relief and injury management.

Is Kinesiology tape bad for you?

Although Kinesiology Tape has numerous benefits which can be used to prevent or treat common muscle and joint injuries, you should not use Kinesiology Tape if you are allergic to adhesives, have an open wound, have been diagnosed with a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DPV) and have an infection or active cancer.

What does Kinesiology tape actually do?

Kinesiology Tape, although a controversial topic amongst sports therapists, offers various benefits such as pain relief by increasing blood flow and lymphatic drainage to specific areas. It can prevent cramps and reduce swelling. Kinesiology tape is also effective for facilitating proper muscle contractions and increasing mobility. For a more detailed explanation as well as product suggestions please view our Kinesiology tape Buyer's Guide

How long can I leave Kinesiology Tape on for?

Kinesiology tape, unlike other tapes, is water-resistant so you can leave it on and not worry about taking it off immediately (even for showers). It is strong enough that you may be able to use the same tape application for three to five days without irritating the skin but it is advisable that you remove it if you have any feelings of discomfort.

Do I need to shave before applying Kinesiology Tape?

It is not necessary for you to shave the skin before applying Kinesiology Tape. In fact, short hairs can actually help the tape stick to the skin better by providing more traction which will make the tape more effective and more likely to create the desired effect of restricting blood flow and lymphatic drainage.
