Kinesio Taping

Just completed the KT1 and KT2 course, so I am now qualified to do Kinesio Taping. For anyone living in and around the Montreal area who need or knows someone that needs kinesio taping, feel free to contact me.

Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and to treat pain.

Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name "Kinesio". Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.

Consequently, so much attention was given to the importance of muscle function that the idea of treating the muscles in order to activate the body's own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. Employment of Kinesio Taping creates a totally new approach to treating nerves, muscles, and organs. The first application of Kinesio Taping was for a patient with articular disorders.

Kinesio Taping is a therapeutic taping technique, not only offering your patient or athlete the support they are looking for, but rehabiliting the affected area as well. This technique uses a highly specific designed tape that works with the body allowing full range of motion (ROM). This technique will not adversley affect the bio mechanics of the patient. This latex free product makes it hypoallergenic and safe to use from the pediatric to geriatric populations. No compression to the skin makes it "light to the feel" allowing comfortable wear over a 3 to 5 day period. The water resistant fabric wisks away moisture and gives the patient the ability to bathe as normal. Kinesio Taping works with the lymphatic system to increase circulation of blood and lymph in order to rehabilitate and relieve pain. Used for virtually all clinical conditions.

For more information about Kinesio Taping you can check out the official Kinesio Taping site and the Kinesio Taping Canada site.

Can't wait for this movie to come out. They really seem to have stuck true to the original look of the characters from the comics and cartoon. NICE!

Wii..!!!

If you're wondering why the lack of updates on my blog and flickr page it's because I've been spending most...mmmm ok all of my free time playing on my...wait for it...NINTENDO Wii!!. Yep thats right, got myself a Wii in December. It was actually a family purchase (my mom plays Wii tennis and bowling all the time).

So far I've completed Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in December (great game). I'm currently 85% through Trauma Center: New Blood, just started Super Mario Galaxy (can never get tired of saving a certain princess), and I'm still Rocking like a Rock Star with Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock. Very soon, I too will be the "God of Rock" lol.

Well hopefully the writers strike will be over soon so I can get back to watching my shows; How I Met Your Mother, Heroes, Scrubs, and Grey's Anatomy (luckily I still have Law & Order and certain animes to occupy myself with). Anyhoo thats if for now, got some other new toys recently, when I have time I'll take some pics and post them on flickr, but now time to go save Princess Peach (Toadstool for us old school folks) and then go ROCK OUT!!

Squash or badminton anyone?

Just a little update. I work full time now at Sani Sport (a tennis, squash and badminton club) in Brossard. Basically I'm the Kinesiologist in their fitness centre that does fitness evaluations everyday and educate people on health and fitness in my nice little office (yes, I have my own office! hehe). As an employee I can play for free (squash, badminton, tennis) but the problem is I need to find a partner to play with. So if anyone is interested in playing on the weekends give me a shout.
