How does the tape work?
Athletes have tried, tested and used, many methods to treat those muscles which are injured or sore. Pain pills, creams, tapes, gels etc have been used, but it always gets messy to handle such solutions. As technology has improved so has the treatments, the medical community has learnt a lot over time. While traditional therapies have always restricted movement to injured muscles, but the medical community has learnt otherwise. Keeping muscles moving & improving circulation reduce the pain and speeds the healing process of the muscles. This inspired the father of Kinesiology Taping, Japanese Chiropractor Dr. Kenzo Kase, to develop a muscle treatment in 1979 that he named the Kinesio Taping Method. The KT Tapes method gently lifts the layer of skin and attached tissue covering a muscle so that blood and other body fluids can move more freely in and around that muscle. This in turn helps the muscle get more blood content and speeds up recovery by leaps and bounds.

This has a unique matrix mesh which allows for release of moisture that is critical for comfort. Its design provides more breathability and moisture release for comfort.
