You've got kids and a spouse and bills and a house, a ton of responsibilities that mostly make you happy but can also make you pretty stressed, too.

You've tried selling oils or jewelry to your friends, but struggle with the sales-y aspect. You'd love to do something part-time, but many jobs have a requirement of hours that you just can't meet.

Kinesio Taping: Beyond the Sports Stadium

By MTTI Instructor Robin Faux

I’m sure you’ve seen it without knowing what you were looking at; a photo of an athlete celebrating a victory with a streak of black tape running along a muscle group. Maybe it was a series of hot pink strips stretched along the abs of a volleyball player. This tape, known as Kinesio Tape, has been around since 1979, but received a lot of attention during the 2008 Summer Olympics. Since the Beijing Olympics, many spectators have noticed the tape on their favorite athletes and it has appeared in a number of pictures worldwide. Because its most prevalent exposure is in sports photos, I believe many people think it’s exclusively useful for athletes. However, because of the wide variety of uses for kinesio tape, it is actually beneficial for people of all walks of life.
