Review

This book focuses on the use of taping as a treatment for reducing pain, muscle tension, sprains, strains and many more injuries. It provides information on how you yourself can apply tape on your body for sports, exercise and daily activities. Some examples are support upright position, bruised ribs, pain in muscle movement, carpal tunnel syndrome, sore back, help with breathing, promote better healing of scars, headaches and menstrual cramps. Provided in the book are step-by-step diagrams, written instructions and width/amount of tape required for each condition. As well, there is a full body diagram of the individual muscles in the human body at the beginning of the book. This book contains considerable information for relieving pain and tension during exercise, sports and daily life.--Glenn Perrett"Northumberland News" (10/09/2014)

I bought this because my Physio has been taping me for months, and I am finding my hands are no longer responding as well. As I oy get to see her rarely now, I decided I needed to help myself. So I bought this book and taped myself up and saw her today. We talked about how it felt and what support I needed and where I needed support and we checked the book together to discover that I had not quite applied the tape as it stated. My physio showed me in the book and pointed out I was not quite on the line clearly shown in the picture and described in the book. She was so impressed with the book that she too the ISBN number as it so well described.
So thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to learn more and to also be able to self treat.

This book is exactly what I needed to give a clear and understandable explanation of taping. I've already used it on a sore lower back, shin splints and knee ache. It worked every time - almost like magic! Believe in the scientific explanation or not, it still works. Really clear photos support the explanations. Covers all areas of the body, from head to toe - literally.

This is a good starter book, it does feel like it's been 'rushed' though, lots of the images seem out of sequence, tape colours change in the guide so you'll go to a specific page to look at how to tape a problem and the colours switch from the start to the end where the tape has changed when it's been applied to the model and re shot which kind of makes it a bit fuzzy as I personally look for colour and line to remember the procedure from a to b etc...

I am a bit of a 'freak' when it comes to the glorious attention to detail in guides, I find it so important however I would highly recommend this book.

Also, bare in mind that Kinesiology is not an exact science and other books may offer alternative taping methods but one thing I seem to have picked up from this book is; if you're going to follow the guides you'll need a LOT of tape! They are very heavy on the length of tape used.

Ultimately... I've used tape on my knee and helped friends out with strains and it just works.
