You have probably seen numerous football, rugby and tennis players - even athletes at the London Olympics - wearing brightly coloured tape. This is Kinesio Tape.

Kinesio Taping is now used by men and women in any sport, whatever their ability, to provide support and stability to their muscles and joints. It is also useful for treating clients with issues, such as neck pain, sacroiliac pain, lower back pain, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and biceps tendinitis.
