Equine Kinesiology Taping

There are so many reasons, ways and methods to using taping that I offer as a general rule 
1. Taping is offered as an adjunct to massage. 
2. It may be an advantage to instruct the owner how to tape the horse themselves and then sell you the proper tape to be using.
3. Cost for taping is a $10.00 to $30.00 extra charge on the massage.  Cost depends on time taken and amount of tape used.

How does the tape work?

Kinesiology tape works through a special adhesive designed to stick to skin or hair and lift the skin.  This lift creates space for cells to move about and provides just the right amount of stimulation for action to take place.  There may be less than 1 milimeter of space gained but that amount of space is oceans of space, on a cellular level.
