Acupressure Taping

The Practice of Acutaping for Chronic Pain and Injuries

About Acupressure Taping

Combines acupressure and massage to treat pain using elastic tape

• Shows how the use of an elastic, adhesive tape works with the body’s own motions to combine the actions of acupressure and massage

• Presents both therapeutic and preventative techniques for acute and chronic pain

• Contains step-by-step instructions illustrated in full color detailing how to self-treat pain in all parts of the body

Sufferers of chronic pain well know the frustration of treatments 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. Combining elements of Chinese medicine with osteopathy, acutaping produces a method of treatment for ailments ranging from back pain and tennis elbow to menstrual pain and migraines. Acutaping is an easy and effective treatment--without side effects--that offers welcome relief to sufferers of chronic pain.

HEALTH / BODYWORK

Sufferers of chronic pain well know the frustration of treatments involving endless rounds of drugs or expensive physical therapy--that may or may not offer relief. Doctors 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, an elastic cotton tape, known to many people as kinesio tape, is placed over painful muscles or joints to provide support, relieve pain, and improve lymph drainage, while encouraging full freedom of motion. When a muscle is inflamed or swollen, the space between the skin and the muscle becomes compressed, irritating the muscle’s pain receptors. The therapeutic elastic tape is able to lift the skin away from the underlying muscle, relieving this painful irritation. During the course of normal movement throughout the day, the tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the inflamed area.

Because Dr. Hecker and Dr. Liebchen draw upon their knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and the holistic principles of osteopathy, they carry treatment with kinesio tape a step further. Unlike simple kinesio taping, which primarily tapes the locus of pain, the taping protocols in this book are designed to stimulate related acupuncture points as well, combining principles of acupressure and massage for improved healing and pain relief. The authors show how many bodily dysfunctions can be self-treated through this innovative method, and they present therapeutic as well as preventive techniques for addressing acute and chronic pain--from chronic back pain and tennis elbow to menstrual pain and tension headaches. With step-by-step instructions, illustrated in full color, detailing how to self-treat pain throughout the body, acutaping provides an easy and effective treatment approach--without side effects--that offers welcome relief to sufferers of chronic pain.
