Acupressure Taping is based on Kinesio-Taping, which was developed in the
early 1970’ by the Japanese doctor and chiropractor Kenzo Kase. In Acupressure Taping, an elastic tape is placed over the afflicted area in accordance with related acupuncture points. During the course of normal movement throughout the day, the elastic tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the injured area. Because the skin adheres to the tape, it is shifted against the subtissue during motion, causing lymph tissue to drain and connective tissue to be massaged. Acupressure Taping is mainly used for musculoskeletal problems such as tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis.
