Tape Up to Shape Up
What if we told you that muscle rehabilitation and pain-control did not have to come in the form of hours of grueling rehabilitation exercises? What if simple tape could transform the way your joints and muscles function, bringing your neuromuscular system back to it’s natural balance? Before you call it blasphemy, let Pittsburgh salon, Verve 360 Wellness share with you the newest and most revolutionary service for muscle-related needs.
The new process is called Kinesio Taping, and just as the name alludes, it involves the taping of the muscles to reduce inflammation, pain, and other muscular problems. This new service propels the body’s natural healing process by allowing for increased lymphatic drainage.
The tape is applied in specific patterns around and across the muscle to gently lift the skin so it coils, thus increasing the space between the cells and facilitating the decrease in inflammation. The lifting of the skin also promotes great circulation- necessary for muscles to work up to their full potential.
This form of muscle treatment can be used for a host of problems: lower back pain, knee problems, tight or strained muscles, carpal tunnel syndrome, even headaches! It is perfect for anyone. From the most strenuous athletes to elders, tape is proving to be a tool producing absolutely incredible results.
Kinesio Taping isn’t a secret. It’s catching on all over the world! Participating runners in The North Face 100K trail run in Australia swear by the method to prevent, as well as treat, their stiff , strained, or aching muscles. A British reporter for Athletes Weekly dubbed the method “weird and wonderful”. Even the young golfing sensation, Roy Mcllroy, has looked to kinesio taping for problems with his wrists.
