Kinesio taping is the technique of applying a sticky stretchy tape to the body in specific patterns to help you feel and function better. At The Glasgow Treatment Rooms we mostly use RockTape although sometimes we have other brands floating around too.
If during your massage or Osteopathy session taping is discussed and decided to be an appropriate treatment addition we can usually apply it at the end of session This is however dependent on whether we’ve used any lotion or wax on the area to be taped during the session. This add on service during your normal session is free but does take a little time so there will be less hands-on time.
We can use taping to help with many issues.
To help unlearn bad movement or postural habits.
To ease Trigger Point pain.
To reduce fluid and swelling.
To make a joint or area feel supported.
To reduce pain and discomfort.
