A gentle, safe and effective approach to stretching the connective tissue of our body. This tissue is the fabric that holds the body together, and allows for communication between cells.
This is a cotton-based tape with medical grade adhesive. It has no latex and can be left on for 3-5days. It is water resistant and moves with your body.

Kinesio Tape is excellent for reducing pain by alleviating pressure on the pain receptors. Other applications include reduction in swelling by increasing fluid movement, retraining muscle groups and manipulation of connective tissue.

A gentle hands-on therapy that allows the organs to realize their lack of movement and potential range of motion. Releasing patterns of dis-ease
As we all learned from a young age, our body is dependant on our skeleton for structural stability. What you may not have learned is the importance of our organs in this system, not only for their function, but also for the impact they can have on that skeletal structure.
Each “organ” has it’s own unique range of motion available to it within its specific body compartment. All organs have either tight or loose attachments to the skeleton. These maintain their positioning while also allowing for a specific movement. These connections from organ to skeleton make it possible for us to bend, stretch and perform all the activities we need to throughout our lives.
