It is a therapeutic and supportive method used to influence muscle-skeletal and lymphatic systems. Its principal is application of elastic tapes in a specific way onto the affected area. Consequently the blood and lymph circulation is promoted (increase of blood circulation in the area and lymph release), reduction of pressure on veins, stimulation of skin receptors, and thus speeding up the healing process. Another way of application is correction or stabilization of joint position (e.g. correction of hallux valgus, toe walking and in-toeing with children)

  • Doing sports

  • At syndrome of carpal tunnel, extensor overuse
  • Improves blood circulation, lymph release (reduction of swellings, prolonging the effects of lymphatic drainage)
  • Stabilizing of relaxed blockages
  • Prolonging massage effects
  • Correction of wrong position (e.g. hallux valgus, backbone)


  • Allergy to tapes
  • Skin defects (injuries, unhealed scars, venous ulcers)
  • Skin diseases (psoriasis, eczema, mycoses)
  • raised birth marks, warts or other skin formations
  • Acute thrombosis
