The number of sessions is dictated by the clients’ neuro-physiological response and nature of the condition for treatment. Each session usually lasts between 20-30 minutes.

Is an internationally used treatment technique to allow normal kinetic movement faster via the application of tape to activate and optimise the body’s own healing processes and reduce inflammation.

Examples of the effects of this treatment technique include relief/elimination of pain, improved micro-circulation, elimination of oedemas, improve muscle function and tone, allow full active range of movement (where appropriate) and improve proprioception.
