Kinesio Taping

Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner

Kinesio tape is a stretchy, latex-free, medical grade tape that moves with the human body through its full range of motion. Its inventor, Dr. Kenzio Kase, intends it to feel like he still has a supportive hand on his patients, even after they leave his chiropractic treatments. It is designed to be worn for 3-5 days, during which time, Kinesio Tape offers the support and sensory input to guide your body back into comfortable, efficient movement.

I am a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner. As a CKTP, I have completed a rigorous course of hands-on training and passed an international exam, designed by Kinesio Taping® Association International, to ensure a consistently high quality of treatment. I use Kinesio Tape in a variety of ways, from facilitating the movement of injured muscles, to creating the spatial awareness that leads to better posture, to speeding recovery from bad bruises.

Pricing:

To celebrate my recent certification as a CKTP, I do not currently charge for Kinesio Tape applied during a massage!

  • changes nerve sensation and alleviates pain
