Olympics go tribal

Men and women are giving everything to win after years of hard teamwork. We all know that behind every success (in sports, business, etc.), there is a whole team that, due to one winning name, often fades into the background. This time, it is different!

At London 2012, my attention was caught by the new “tribal” body decoration. Competitors are covered with colourful stripes on different parts of the body. The new guru is a personal sports physiotherapist and his magic Kinesio Tapes.

The Kinesio Taping Method has taken the rehabilitation and sports medicine world by storm. Developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase nearly 25 years ago in Japan, Kineso Taping has become the golden standard for therapeutic rehabilitative taping. The tapes are designed for treatment of muscular disorders and lymphedema reduction.

There are various techniques of taping, which should always be done by professionals to prevent any damages.

RIP my old white elastic bandages!
