This is a relatively new treatment method particularly, but not exclusively, for the treatment of pain.  It is a development of Kinesio-taping and was described by two German doctors, Hans-Ulrich Hecker and Kelly Liebchen.  The method has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, but also in osteopathy.  Acupressure taping differs from Kinseo-taping in that any “western” symptom can be translated into a Chinese clinical picture and then managed with this therapy.  Thus  more complaints can be treated using Acupressure taping, including internal problems such as bowel disorders, menstrual problems, and many others.

The expected effects of Acupressure taping can be summarized as follows: Pain reduction. Reduction in muscle spasm, improved tone of weak muscles, anti-inflammatory actions, improved immune state, decongestion and improved blood circulation.

Acupressure taping is especially useful in the realm of sports medicine.
