Acupressure Taping: The Practice of Acutaping for Chronic Pain and Injuries
HECKER Hans-Ulrich, LIEBCHEN Kay
Sufferers of chronic pain well know the frustration of treatment involving endless rounds of drugs or expensive physical therapy that may or may not offer relief. In Acupressure Taping, authors Hecker and Liebchen present a comprehensive guide to a new method of pain treatment - acutaping - which offers a much simpler and more effective alternative. In acutaping, elastic tape is placed over the afflicted area in accordance with related acupuncture points. During the course of normal movement throughout the day, the elastic tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the inflamed area. Because the skin adheres to the tape, it is shifted against the subtissue during motion causing lymph tissue to drain and connective tissue to be massaged. The authors show that most bodily dysfunctions can be self-treated through this innovative method.
