​Kinesio Taping has taken the sports and medical markets by storm. Developed by Dr Kenzo Kase, the innovative and brightly coloured Kinesio sports tape has helped many professional athletes at the top of their game, as well as amateur enthusiasts participating in grass roots sports. You’ll have seen the tape at the London Olympics and Wimbledon and regularly worn by footballers throughout the League, including many premiership players. It is also actively used by healthcare professionals within the NHS and private medical settings.

With over 35 years of research and development, Kinesio has become the therapeutic taping of choice for athletes to support muscles, cut injury recovery times and aid lymphoedema reduction. Using a unique adhesive tape (Kinesio Tex), and specialist applications, Kinesio provides muscle support during activity without affecting range of motion. This innovative taping method has been embraced by physiotherapists, sports therapists, occupational therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, lymphoedema specialists and other healthcare professionals throughout the world. Kinesio UK and our CKTI (Certified Kinesio Taping Instructors) have, since 2004, provided certified Kinesio courses to thousands of healthcare practitioners - many looking after some of the UK’s top sporting athletes.


Working with academic establishments, professional associations and organisations, Kinesio UK is at the forefront of research into the effectiveness of Kinesio Taping for sports injuries, as well as being a lead contributor in the development and use of Kinesio Taping within the fields of lymphoedema, paediatrics, neurology, pregnancy and equine.
