What is Lymphotaping

The lymphotaping is the application of a tape to achieve a draining effect on different parts of the body.
The 'patch' used is not impregnated with any substance but, when applied correctly stimulates the body's natural healing processes acting by mechanical effect.
This technique originated in the late 1970s thanks to a Japanese chiropractor, who applied a plaster on a muscle, resulting in an improvement in the performance of the muscle itself.
The objectives to be achieved through this technique can be many, among them are:
- decompression of the nervous and lymphatic systems;
- joint decompression;
- support for the muscles;
- decompression of the skin;
- joint stabilisation.
In order to benefit from lymphotaping, it must be applied by a professional, so it is not recommended to try this method at home.
