Unique kinesiology/sports tape that supports while allowing full range of motion. It’s used to decrease pain, decompress tissue, and provide stimulus that improves body awareness. Skines Body Tape is a premium brand of kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by a wide variety of health professionals throughout the world to both prevent and treat injuries and pain.
When applied properly, Skines Body Tape lifts skin away from underlying muscles and nerve endings to provide relief from pain. This unique lifting action also improves blood flow to muscles, which can help delay fatigue.
When applied correctly, Skines Body Tape’s unique elasticity causes the skin to form convolutions and wrinkle. This decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin. It is believed that this has three main effects:
Fluid effect- improving blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area
Mechanical effect- improving the slide and glide between tissue layers
Neurological effect- altering the perception of pain and improving body awareness.
Skines Body Tape is manufactured in South Korea which has much more stringent quality controls. This results in a product which is stickier, stretcher and superior.

Skines Body Tape designed to be friendly on skin, and has the strength to hold The secret with Skines Body Tape is all in the adhesive!

Muscle pain or cramping – e.g. lower back or calf muscles
Joint pain – e.g. shoulder or knee
Inflammation or bruising
Not at all. If you can apply rigid tape, you can apply Skines Body Tape. There are instructions in every box and instructional videos can be viewed in the website. Depending on which bit of your body needs taping you may need someone else to help you, e.g. your shoulder or lower back.
The recommended retail price for uncut roll (5m x 5cm) is $21.99 and precut roll is $22.99. A roll will last for about 10-20 applications, or about one to two months, depending on frequency and length of applications.
Skines Body Tape can be worn for 3-5 days. It is 97% organic cotton and 3% high grade nylon, is water resistant and can be worn while swimming or in the shower.
We recommend that there are no moisturisers, oils or any products on the skin before applying Skines Body Tape.
Shaving body hair prior to application of Skines Body Tape is not essential. If the tape is removed correctly, there will be very little body hair removed with the Skines Body Tape.
The reason we do this is that the corners are much more likely to catch on clothing, towels, sheets etc and cause the edge of the tape to lift. Once this lifts, the rest of the tape can peel off very quickly. We want your tape to last 3-5 days, so this is important! If an edge lifts, carefully trim the Skines Body Tape that has lifted with scissors, as that will allow you get longer from your application. The ends of the Skines Body Tape which lift are the anchors and won’t impact the benefits of the application.
Skines Body Tape is elastic with 180% stretch. So when we apply the Skines Tape we don’t apply any stretch to the first and last 3cm of the Skines Tape. This anchor means the tape is going to stay stuck better, but most importantly, it reduces the risk of skin traction injuries that can occur right at the very end of the tape. If you have a very small patch of irritation on the skin where the tape started or finished, this is most likely the cause. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT IN AREAS WHERE THERE IS A LOT OF SKIN MOVEMENT, LIKE AROUND THE SHOULDER.
Skines Body Tape is stretchy stuff! For the newbies to taping, it is really tempting to pull a lot of the stretch out of the tape as you apply it. But the ideal scenario for most applications is to stretch the body part that you are taping and only apply a very small amount of stretch to the tape. Once again, this is REALLY IMPORTANT when taping around shoulders. Some stretch can be applied to the second piece of Skines Body Tape – normally referred to as the decompression strip. But don’t apply any more than 25% stretch.
Yes, Skines Body Tape is hypoallergenic. There is no latex or zinc oxide in Skines Body Tape. Skines Body Tape is made from a combination of cotton and nylon and the adhesive is acrylic. We recommend anyone who has a history of skin irritation with tape to try a test patch. To do this apply a small piece of tape to an area of skin near where you wish to apply the tape. Leave for 24 hours to ensure there is no reaction.
The adhesive is heat activated so rubbing the Skines Body Tape after application will create some heat and assist the adhesive to adhere to the skin. The longer the interval between application and exercise and or the Skines Body Tape gets wet, will allow the body heat to fire up the adhesive to ensure it is firmly attached to the skin. For an event like a marathon or a triathlon, it is best to apply the Skines Body Tape the night before after having a shower to ensure the skin is clean and then the warm bed will ensure the Skines Body Tape is well adhered.
You can place a warm heat pack on the Skines Body Tape and the warmth from the heat pack will fire up the adhesive and shorten the recommended time span between application and exercise. You can also use a hair dryer to create some warmth. Or you apply an adhesive spray to the skin before applying the Skines Body Tape.
Skines Tape also designed to be wear as breast lift tape, replacement for wearing bras. The thick, wide strips provide an instant lift, support and shape to breast.
When the breast is placed in the desired position Skines Tape can create cleavage to the breast as well as creating support underneath clothing so that you do not have to wear a bra which will allow the breasts to be lifted which has the same elasticity as your skin. Skines Tape is strong enough to support your breasts and move in a natural way perfect underneath tricky clothing items.
We recommend using nipple covers before using Skines tape as an extra precaution to sensitive nipples.

Most instances of skin irritations are a result of too much stretch being applied. The most common areas of the body when this problem arises is for the shoulder or knee joint, because there is a lot of movement through the joint. The second most likely cause of a skin irritation occurs when the Skines Body Tape has been removed too aggressively. Skines Body Tape sticks well, but it does come off quite easily if you are careful. PLEASE DON’T USE THE “BAND-AID” TECHNIQUE OF “GRIP AND RIP”.
When using any type of adhesive tape on skin, most skin irritation occurs when the skin is subject to traction force with an aggressive removal technique. Skines Body Tape comes off more easily when it is wet, and we recommend peeling the tape back on itself SLOWLY, in the direction of hair growth (to avoid a waxing effect guys – the girls usually know this!), and if possible, whilst supporting the skin behind the tape as it is gently eased away. If you, or your skin, is particularly sensitive, then apply some oil over the tape before removing it and the oil will break down the adhesive and make the removal much easier.
