Kinesiology Tape is a functional movement tape applied along your muscles or joints to increase function and/or decrease pain. It is made to move with you, and can even get wet - so you can still hit the beach. Common symptoms that taping may help with include shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, pregnancy belly pain, lower back pain, & even menstrual cramps.
Some muscles require some extra assistance in addition to getting adjusted - and getting released will help your adjustment last longer! Instrument assisted muscle release uses a metal or stone tool to break down muscle and fascia adhesions to decrease pressure & pain. This is also useful for scar tissue release.
This ancient holistic technique utilizes suction to decrease pain and inflammation while increasing blood flow and relaxation. Cupping is great for releasing muscle tension and stress, and can be applied both actively and passively.
