Kinesiology Tape

Kinesiology tape was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in the ‘70s to provide muscle support without limiting movement. It’s also been designed to help with general discomfort, boosting muscle support, and aid in muscle recovery. Since its popularity rose, physical therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and even the regular joe turn to ktapes to help with their active lifestyle. 

Made from cotton,  spandex, and adhesive, kinesiology tape mimics skin elasticity and is stretchier than other athletic tapes. Designed to be water-resistant, you can wear ktape as you sweat out at the gym, swimming, diving, or when engaging in any outdoor activity. You can even wear them as you shower.

Kinesiology tapes work by lifting the skin from the muscle below. In turn, the tape reduces swelling and promotes blood flow to the muscle to increase its function. 

Much more comfortable than braces and wraps, this extra elastic tape aids support for injured muscles without restricting movement. As it serves as excellent support for weaker limbs, it also reduces your risk for injury.  What’s more, ktape affords you a much more customizable fit!

There are various ways of applying kinesiology tape for different parts of the body. If this is your first time using kinesiology tape, you can ask your physiotherapist or chiropractor for some advice on proper application. 

You can check out our Education page to learn proper taping protocols for different areas of the body. There are also tons of online resources that you can go to, including Youtube, that demonstrate proper taping protocols for different body parts as well as injuries.

We recommend wearing TapeGeeks tape for a maximum of 3 days. After 3 days of consistent wear, we highly advise you to remove the tape. Let your skin breathe for a minimum of 24 hours before reapplying. We know other brands recommend wearing tape for up to 5-7 days. While this may sound appealing, we highly discourage this - no matter what brand. Your skin needs to breathe!

Dab a generous amount of baby oil or cooking oil on the kinesiology tape. Let it sit for about 15-20 minutes. Then, gently pull the tape in the direction of the hair growth to remove the tape. Press on the skin as you remove and peel the tape. It would be ideal to do this in the shower so as not to make a mess. Initially, you can also try removing the tape simply in the shower without the baby oil or cooking oil. Typically using just water will also do the trick!

Power Wrap

A cohesive bandage is a multi-purpose and stretchy bandage that sticks only to itself. Self-adherent, it doesn’t stick to skin or hair and does not need pins or adhesives when used. Different athletes and active folks can use these bandages for support, stability, and compression for muscles and joints. They are also used to hold down dressings for wounds.

Tape Geeks’ cohesive bandage provides you all these benefits and more! Just like our kinesiology tapes, you can rely on our athletic bandages to be gentle on your skin. Our bandages are also made in an ISO-certified facility to ensure that nothing but the utmost quality.

You can apply a cohesive bandage much like a regular bandage without needing adhesives or pins to secure it in place. Since these wraps are stretchy, you can adjust the tension for support and compression according to your needs and preferences. 

And, unlike applying kinesiology tapes, you don’t have to stick to a strict protocol when using these bandages.

Self-adhesive bandages, unlike regular bandages, don’t need pins or adhesives when used for wrapping. Again, as they are self-adherent, they do not stick on skin or hair making the wrap easy to use AND remove. 

As a stand-alone tape, you don’t need adhesives or pins to secure them in place. And, since you can tear them by hand, you don’t need scissors to cut them to their appropriate size in width and height.

Yes, they are reusable! Since cohesive bandages don’t rely on adhesive for their stick, you can use them several times. They are also handy when you’ve made taping mistakes, especially if you’re a beginner. Easily peel off the wrap and adjust it accordingly! 

Tape Geeks cohesive bandages for one, gives a great stick, and delivers a secure hold. Even if you’ve used your bandage a couple of times, you can rely on them for a great stick!

Tape Geeks cohesive bandage is water-resistant, so yes! You don’t have to be troubled about the wrap ‘giving’ when they get exposed to, let’s say, sweat. Since they’re designed to be worn by folks who stay active, they can withstand movement, as well. 

Engage in rigorous activities without worrying much about slippage, especially when you use Tape Geeks Power Wrap! Our tapes deliver maximum stick to bring you support and compression that lasts a long time.

We do not recommend that you wash cohesive bandages. While these bandages can be used several times, they’re not exactly made of cloth; they have a film-like composition instead. So, by washing them, you’ll ultimately be stripping them of their ‘stick’ rendering them useless for their intended use and function. 

But worry not! Tape Geeks cohesive bandages deliver a long-lasting adherence that allows you to use a strip numerous times.
