With over 25 years of research, development and clinical use, Kinesio® Tex Gold, with the original wave patterned-adhesive design, has become the standard in elastic therapeutic taping. Offering a gentle and effective approach to the re-education of the neuromuscular system, improvement of circulation of blood/lymph, and relief of pain, providing comfort and stability to your patient care needs.
For many, the Kinesio Taping® applications are a major breakthrough which substantially reduce recovery times and improve fitness levels.
Applications can also encourage lymphatic fluid to move from areas of high pressure to low pressure and towards working lymph nodes. For example, it might be necessary to clear areas where the lymph will be draining towards.
Kinesio Taping can also help to facilitate the stretch response of the angions, with movement or muscle contraction. To ensure that the muscles have free range of motion, elastic tapes with an elasticity of 130-140% of its original length are recommended for Kinesio Taping. This specific elasticity also will not allow an over stretch of the muscles themselves. It may look like conventional athletic tape, but tape and Kinesio Taping is fundamentally different. Kinesio Taping is based on a different philosophy that aims to give free range of motion in order to allow the body's muscular system to heal itself bio-mechanically.

Once applied correct you can really feel a difference. I applied mine before going out to run or play football just to give me that little bit extra support.
I've heard a lot of people complain about it not sticking to their skin and it just keeps peeling off. I've had no problems however, I know there isn't any hair on the soul of my foot, however, there is hair on the back of my leg and I found it to stick just fine. The tape would stick much better on skin without any hair but I wasn't going to shave my legs just to stick some tape on. I also found for an extra £7-8 you can pick up some sports tape spray which is like a glue spray that helps with tape sticking to the skin. If you do get some of this I would recommend you don't apply it over any part of your body with hair as I found it to pull the hairs a lot and be very uncomfortable so please bare that in mind and only use on skin with no hair to save yourself some pain. I use it mainly to pray the edges when it starts to come away and it solves the problem for another few days.
Be sure to round off the edges before applying to help the tape against rubbing on clothing and once applied make sure to really rub the tape and heat it up to help with the sticking process.
I love the colours the tape comes in, really eye catching. They come in a really nice little box and the delivery on this item (even on super saving delivery) was really fast. I got my tape within a couple of days of placing my order.
I would recommend buying this tape over something that is a bit cheaper as you are getting your moneys worth. The 5m tapes goes a long way and should last you a while unless you use way too much.
Have tried others and they just don't stick.
I have to have mine placed at the base of my neck on my hairline and this stuff sticks fast and doesn't move a inch!
Helps so much and really notice if I don't have it applied
