How does Kinesiology Tape work?

Kinesiology tape is really stretchy.

It’s designed to mimic the skin’s elasticity so you can use your full range of motion. The tape’s medical-grade adhesive is also water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for up to five days, even while you work out or take showers.

When the tape is applied to your body, it recoils slightly, gently lifting your skin. This helps to create a microscopic space between your skin and the tissues underneath it.
