How does Equi-Tape® work?

How does Equi-Tape® work?

Equi-Tape® works by interacting with the complex anatomy of a horse’s skin and fascia to achieve therapeutic physiological benefits. When tape is applied to the skin using different techniques and amounts of stretch, the recoil in the tape causes three main phenomena to occur; influence of soft tissue, stimulation of nerves and receptors, and support of musculoskeletal structures.
