3 Unique Uses of StrengthTape
3 Unique Uses of StrengthTape
In the 1970’s, Japanese chiropractor, Kenzo Kase, had a unique idea to reduce inflammation, relax muscles, enhance performance, and help with rehabilitation. 40 years later, the use of Kinesio tape is hard to miss, especially during last year’s Olympic games. As Kinesio tape becomes more accepted and used by the general public, a variety of other therapeutic uses for kinesiology tape are beginning to surface.
These 5 out-of-the-ordinary uses of Kinesio tape will improve your general well-being!
- Reduce Snoring
You may be among the 45% of adults who snore, or even worse, you may be in a relationship with a person who does. Snorers, or their spouses, go to great lengths to put an end to the window-rattling headache. In fact, Americans lose 7.3 hours of sleep a week due to snoring. Instead of turning to bulky CPAP machines, use a more comfortable and affordable solution!
When applied over the bridge of your nose, pre-cut strips act like a nasal strip but much more effective due to its breathable and stretchier material. The tape gently lifts the skin, opening up the nasal passages for increased airflow and reduces pain or tension from congested sinuses.
Indigestion, or dyspepsia, is a common problem and many people have it from time to time. With up to 40% adults experiencing some form of indigestion each year, the common solution for most is to pop an antacid. However, popping Tums like candy in order to feel relief may not be a great idea due to the possibility of infection. Uncut Kinesio strips provide the nonintrusive solution to indigestion cramps.
Apply one piece of tape at the center of the stomach above the belly button, mildly stretching at the center of the tape with no stretch applied at the sides. Then apply another piece of tape across the first piece with mild stretch at the center of the tape with no stretch applied at the sides. In the event of bloating, this application will stretch the area of skin around the upper and lower abdomen.
