Physilogical Effect of 3NS Taping Method

When a muscle is inflamed, swollen, or stiff, the space between the skin and muscle is compressed, resulting in constriction to the flow of lymphatic fluid. This compression applies pressure to the pain receptors beneath the skin, which in turn relays discomforting signals to the brain resulting in the person experiencing pain.

If you stretch the skin of the affected area before application of the tape, the taped skin will form wrinkles when the skin and muscles are back to its normal or neutral position. The wrinkling effect formed by the tape is essential in the effectiveness of the 3NS Taping Method and Technique.

Since this lifting of the skin increases the space between the skin and muscles, the lymphatic fluid between the skin and muscles moves more effectively. Therefore, the friction between the tissues beneath the skin is decreased due to the promoted movement of lymphatic fluid.

Due to increased space between the skin and muscle, pain is reduced because pressure on the pain receptors is lessened. The physiological effects of 3NS Tex Tape will enhance the body’s own healing process.
What is 3NS Taping Method ?

The taping method developed by 3NS R&D team and other high authoritative institutes in Korea supported by years long scientific data. It is a produce of the studies through everyday research and team projects on our products, which multiples the effect of conventional sports and muscle supporting sports tape (s).

We highly recommend you to use a broad type of “I” shaped tex taping method to cover problematic areas of body more effectively.

A unique-patterned adhesive therapeutic tape that provides gentle remedial effects to the neuromuscular system, blood & lymph circulation resulting in much relief for muscles as well as joint pain.

• Good ventilation by using style glue spread out to the tape.
• Realize ideal elastic band to fit movement of muscle, and will not prevent ordinary body movement.
• Minimized stimulation to sensitive skin.
• Beige, Blue, Red, Black, Orange and Purple in color.

(1) To remove paper backing, place the tip of your thumb on the top edge of the sports tape, and then simply roll back your thumb along and towards your body.

(2) To remove paper backing, since the tension of the 3NS Tex Sports Tape is different from that of the paper backing, the paper backing will tear as a result of twisting the tape itself.

(3) To apply the tape onto pain area, the skin and muscle of the appected area has to be fully stretched before application of the tape.
Do not stretch the tape itself, and then leave it on for 3~5 days

(4) When removing 3NS Tex Sports Tape from the skin, never remove the tape against the direction of body hair and giving as little tension as possible.
One should try to “remove skin from 3NS Tex Tape” rather than “removing 3
