Dr. Kase, what is the purpose of the different tensions on the tape?

“Good question, different tension, well like this tape if I wanted to stimulate more surface, more surface less tension, ok? But if you want to stimulate more deeper more high tensions, or if you want to hold like a ligament and tendon or joint, we need to 100% tension sometimes, use. But fortunately this tape does not give too much pressure and so, tension is very important and…but not only the tension of a tape, direction of a tape. If you apply from here to this way with certain tension this tape come back, it’s what we call recoil so if you pull from left to right, this way, with 50% tension they come back, they come back, you know they bring back tissue to this way, so fluid, we can ask to the fluid move from here to here but which fluid you need to move? So different tension, different direction, those are very complicated but that’s why we are help to teaching to medical people. ”

Kinesio® cannot be understood without understanding our story. Dr. Kenzo Kase developed the Kinesio Taping® Method in the 1970s to fill a void in the treatment options that were available at that time. He was searching for a way to facilitate the body’s natural healing process and prolong the benefits of his treatment after his patients left his clinic. Through his education as a chiropractor, his innate ability to sense internal pain and dysfunction through the skin and his creative therapeutic mind, Dr. Kase was able to develop new methods of treating his diagnoses. Among these methods, Kinesio® Taping industry was born and soon all other therapeutic elastic tape companies built upon Kinesio tape and methods.

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.
