Elastic tape is used to lift the skin and create a gentle massage with movement, similar to MLD.  

Pressure changes and movement of the skin help encourage lymphatic flow.  Decreased pressure on chemical receptors also reduces pain, and may encourage the return of normal sensation.

We also use elastic tape for the muscles.  When applied correctly, the tape replicates and enhances the function of muscle fibers and tendons.  Elastic taping may be used to improve postural alignment, decrease tissue pressure, reduce vascular and neurological compression syndromes and improve respiration.

  • Relieves pain or abnormal sensation associated with tissue pressure

  • Assists in reduction of fibrosis

  • Supports and encourages skin movement

  • Generally lasts up to 4 days
