Cross Taping

Supplier Code: 

A successful and skin friendly therapy method in nerve and muscle pain and movement restrictions.

According to the basis of Chinese acupuncture therapy, our body's energy  works in a constant flow, in a system of meridians, underlying the skin surface.  Injuries, scarring, spinal problems or other illnesses can cause a disruption or surge in these "energy flows".  Cross taping can influence this energy.  The aim of the treatment is to encourage the energy to flow freely again.

Korean born cross taping comprises a system of grid shaped "patches" approximately 1.5 x 2.5cm in size.  The cross patches are loaded on the energy issues, such as pain points, trigger points and acupuncture points manually identified by the Therapist.  The Cross Tape provides enhanced energy flow, thereby improving mobility and reducing pain.

The cross tape is a self adhesive tape, waterproof, and can stay on the skin until it falls off of its own volition, sometimes this can be up to 3 weeks in duration.  Due to the complex nature of Cross Taping Therapy, it is recommended that treatment is undertaken by appropriately trained Physiotherapists or similarly qualified practitioners.

Examples of application of cross tapes:

  • Muscle tension
  • Joint pain
  • Headache
  • Migraine
  • Tinnitus
  • Bruising
