One of our friends on Facebook had a question about whether or not we use Kinesio tape.  I had never heard of this and when I quickly researched it I found interesting facts about its use, so much in fact, I am seriously considering becoming “certified” in this modality.  Taping has only been done for the past 30 years.  Typically, sports taping is done to immobilize joints.  Kinesio tape “supports” muscles and joints.  Bruising vanishes and swelling reduces without limiting range of motion.  Kinesio is used for knees, shoulders, headaches, bruising, swelling, pain and inflammation. I thought this is such an important modality to bring forward I have attached a video for you.  We are beginning to add taping in my office in addition to acupuncture and herbs.
