Application of Neuromuscular Taping Tecnhiques in Lymphatic Drainage

The basis for the Medical Taping Concept was laid in Japan and Korea in the seventies. At the time, methods of taping were being developed starting from the idea that movement and muscle activity are essential in maintaining and recovering health. The idea behind this was that muscles are not only responsible for movements of the body but they also control, for instance, blood and lymph circulation as well as body temperature. If the muscles do not function properly, it can cause a range of symptoms and complaints.
