The main principle of the fascia technique is to create a gentle re-positioning of the fascia to improve function.

In this case the tape is applied with a gentle stretch of between 25% and 50%.

With this technique the tissue (and the base) is drawn towards the tail. Having completed the appropriate assessment make a choice of application.

The fascia technique will be demonstrated on the upper body using the following application – Epicondylitis – also know as Tennis Elbow

    • Mark area for treatment; measure and cut the tape in a Y strip
    • Attach the base without tension
    • Gently move the tails in desired direction, pulling the tissue and sticking down the tape as you go.
    • Secure tape to skin, bit-by-bit, until the end of the tails are secured
    • Activate the glue
