Taping Instruction

End-to-End Taping Method:

Tear the release liner 2 inches from each end of the tape. This will expose the adhesive and create the anchor points at the ends of the tape. Apply one anchor tab to the skin with no stretch. Stretch the tape to the desired tension and apply the center of the tape to the skin, peeling the release liner away as you go towards the center. When the opposing anchor tab is reached, remove the backing and apply with no stretch.

Center Taping Method:

Remove the release line from the center of the tape and leave the anchor tab release liner attached. Apply the tape to the center of the application area with the desired degree of stretch then remove the release liner and anchor tabs and apply to the skin with no stretch.
