Kinesiology Taping – Equi-Tape
Equi-Tape is the first kinesiology tape designed specifically for the equine. It can support your program whether it is that of training and conditioning OR one of rehabilitation. Unlike the familiar non-elastic athletic tape, Equi-Tape interacts with the skin and associated neurosensory and mechanoreceptors, without compressing the tissue.
The unique elastic and design characteristics and ability to ‘lift’ the skin, along with specific learned techniques, encourages improved circulation for improved healing. The result can be immediate with respect to pain management due to the body’s ability to associate pain as it relates to increased inflammation/swelling. Therefore, reduce the perceived inflammation/swelling, reduce the pain messages sent to the brain via the pain receptors.
Use Equi-Tape Equine Kinesiology Tape to:
- Decrease muscle spasms
- Reduce inflammation and associated pain
- Reduce swelling and edema
- Re-educate muscle memory
- Support ligaments, tendons and joints
- Prevent injury and speed recovery
- Help with injury rehabilitation
- Increase circulation and promote healing
- Increase equine athletic potential
Equi-Tape allows all components of the body to work more freely and completely during activity, thereby being an excellent addition to any training program.
“I highly recommend this form of therapy for your beloved equine friends. My older boy started acting not like himself, he’s a child and beginner friendly mount and he started pinning his ears and became nippy during grooming and tacking and this was not like him. I had Lisa in to assess him and perform bodywork and we discovered a few things bothering him. He was extremely and I mean extremely sore in his back, to the point where we were quite worried and thought we may need to get the vet involved. After his second session it was like night and day and by the third he was almost back to his old self again. Another week off after the third session and my old trusted mount had returned. I am so grateful for Lisa and Equi-bow for helping my special boy thru his aches and pains. Thank you Equi-bow
