Caroline Arnold BSc(Hons) Applied Sports Therapy / Remedial Massage Therapist

Kinesio Taping

Caroline is qualified as an advanced level Kinesio taper as defined by Kinesio Taping Association International.

KinesioTaping is a therapeutic taping method using a uniquely designed elastic tape that is applied after clinical assessment and treatment. The only tape with 30 years clinical use, application, and increasing evidence of positive clinical outcomes.

Kinesio Tape is a water resistant, latex free tape which has many methods of application affecting the sensors of the skin, changing the healing process of the body. It can be used to:

  • Treat acute or chronic injuries
  • Strengthen  or relax muscles to restore normal muscle function
  • Support weak ligaments / tendons
  • Remove congestion from oedema or haematomas (bruising)
  • Give pain and pressure relief
  • Improve proprioceptors and joint biomechanics/ alignments

Kinesio tape has been used widely in many sporting arenas, including the 2008/2012 Olympic Games for elite Athletes.

Before application it may be necessary to shave the area to be treated to ensure adequate adhesion and reduce pain levels on removal of tape. (Please be advised to shave area before attending for treatment) Please do not apply oils or moisturiser before application as this also reduced adhesion.

The tape can be applied and worn for between 3 to 5 days for continued therapeutic benefit, which can be worn during exercise.

Caroline offers a re-taping session following initial assessment. This is a short session, at reduced price, for people who require taping only prior to matches or in between full appointments to continue the therapeutic benefits of the tape.
