Kinesiology Taping Reduces Swelling and Bruising

kinesiology tape

Kinesiology tape helps you to reduce swelling and bruising by lifting the skin away from the swollen tissue below. Essentially the elasticised properties of kinesio tape creates a sub-dermal vacuum that assists your lymphatic and venous drainage systems to work more efficiently.

You can partially replicate this holding your skin and lightly pulling together your fingers. The result will  be an "orange-peel" appearance, loose skin and lots of remove below your skin for the swelling drainage to occur.

Now isn't that clever!
