Kinesiotaping, i.e. dynamic taping, is one of the methods of physiotherapy. It consists in sticking special, flexible patches on the body. Their main activity is:
- normalization of muscle tone
- activation of the blood and lymphatic system (by lifting tissues)
- pain relief / prevention
- stabilization of muscles and joints
The patches are made of cotton with properties similar to human skin. They do not restrict movements, are breathable and, above all, waterproof (during therapy, you can take a bath freely). They can be worn by pregnant women for about 4-5 days. For women in the perinatal period, kinesiotaping is a safe, painless and, above all, effective method.

- skin changes / moles
- breaking the skin at the application site
- increased uterine contractions
