In essence, kinesiotaping can be seen as a way of constant massage! It supports the microcirculation (transport of nutrients through capillaries), stimulates lymphatic drainage, prevents the adhesion of connective tissue and improves the mobility of muscles and joints. Unlike traditional rigid sports tapes - which firmly immobilizes to prevent further injury - kinesio tape will direct and encourage the muscles and fascia (connective tissue) to move!
Kinesio tape is almost identical to the human skin in terms of thickness and elasticity. Therefore, kinesiology tape can be used without it restricting the freedom of moving.
