5 Facts You Must Know Before You Buy Kinesiology Tape

Our kinesiology tapes have a strong stick and are water-resistant. They retain their stickiness after each use.

After three consecutive days of using the tape, let your skin breathe as you leave it off for at least a full day.

Professional grade and excellent quality.

Was recommended this tape by a friend, and I’m glad he did! This is by far the best kinesiology tape I’ve used over the past 10+ years. I’ve used other popular tapes out there but this one is just way better in terms of the fabric (great quality, the adhesive holds extremely well, and the stretchiness is a lot more responsive to movement compared to other tapes I’ve used. Definitely a premium tape, A++ product.

Wow, what an amazing tape. 

I have used this tape for almost two months. Wow, what an amazing tape. My muscles were a bit “overused” from the intense workout regime so I applied the kinesiology tape to prevent overstretching and speed up recovery. This tape is elastic and allowed me to keep working out without restricting the range of motions.

Great tape for my golfer’s elbow! 

I purchased this tape to help treat some mild golfer’s elbow or medial epicondylitis. I don’t golf but got it from a combination of desk work and rock climbing. I use the tape to unload the base of the medial epicondyle tendon by taking the tension into the tape and soft tissues. This helps decrease pain, increase strength, and helps with healing. This tape works great! For my purpose the tape was a bit wide, so I cut it with scissors lengthwise and it cut just fine. The tape applied fine and has a good amount of stickiness to it. I wore the tape all day under my dress shirt and the tape help up and didn’t come off. I read the other reviews, which suggested round the corners which sounds like a good idea and will try next time. On removing the tape there was no leftover glue and the tape came off easier than I expected without removing my arm hair (my elbow doesn’t have much hair though). No-fuss, no mess, and did the job! Great stuff!
