Kinesio Taping

Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner

Kinesio tape is a stretchy, latex-free, medical grade tape that moves with the human body through its full range of motion. Its inventor, Dr. Kenzio Kase, intends it to feel like he still has a supportive hand on his patients, even after they leave his chiropractic treatments. It is designed to be worn for 3-5 days, during which time, Kinesio Tape offers the support and sensory input to guide your body back into comfortable, efficient movement.

I am a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner. As a CKTP, I have completed a rigorous course of hands-on training and passed an international exam, designed by Kinesio Taping® Association International, to ensure a consistently high quality of treatment. I use Kinesio Tape in a variety of ways, from facilitating the movement of injured muscles, to creating the spatial awareness that leads to better posture, to speeding recovery from bad bruises.


To celebrate my recent certification as a CKTP, I do not currently charge for Kinesio Tape applied during a massage!
