East meets West with the new Kinesio® Tex Gold Light Touch + Tape (LT). Kinesio does it again by providing a unique formula gentle enough for all skin types. More than a pediatric tape, LT is the perfect solution for any patients not previously candidates for elastic therapeutic tape. From pediatric to geriatric to anyone with a tendency to skin sensitivity, LT is the only choice. LT targets the dermis and superficial fascia skin layers, attracting fluid and creating space in the dermis area. The result is a multi-directional soft motion that allows for a shift of misaligned tissue into its correct position by means of light stimulation similar to memory foam.
Kinesio Tex Gold Light Touch+ Backing Paper
All authentic Kinesio Tapes have their own specific backing paper that always says KINESIO.
I put a 5/8 inch by 1 1/2 inch strip on my upper lip and a 5/8 inch by three inch strip on my lower lip with no stretch to keep my mouth wide. This forces my tongue to stay wide. The consequence is that I do not swallow my tongue at night and therefore I do not suffer from sleep apnea when I use the tape.
I had a reaction to another brand of kinesiology tape and went looking for sensitive skin solutions. I found Kinesio Tex Gold rated best for sensitive skin and it's working great for me! The fuji purple is more purple than it looks in the pictures.
Excellent products...reliable and effective. Only wish they were offered in bulk size. I'd buy in a heartbeat!!
