The Muscle Technique

The main principle of application of Kinesiology Tape in the muscle technique is that the muscle is stretched not the tape.
Having completed the well known screening tests and functional tests, carry out the myo-fascial glide, when appropriate, to determine the direction of tissue movement and correct positioning of tape.
