Kinesiological taping was developed in the 1970s under the name Kinesiotaping by the Japanese chiropractor Dr Kenzo Kaze in collaboration with the Japanese company Nitto Denko. The main aim was to support the body’s own healing processes using a special material and application technique.

Kinesiotape mimics the properties of the skin and is therefore able to pass sensory information to your body. The application techniques were developed in kinesiology testing, which also accounts for the name.
