Lymphatic Taping

Lymphatic taping was developed to effect specific and directional lymphatic drainage, to enhance current best practice in the management of lymphoedema and post-surgical recovery.

Once applied, tapes can be worn comfortably for 3-7 days, while delivering 24-hour therapy; providing a simple, economical treatment approach, which is free from systemic adverse reactions.

In a post-surgery setting the taping can be applied to aid recovery from any type of surgery, including orthopaedic, cosmetic/reconstructive, oncology to caesarean section, laparoscopy etc.

Additionally, there are lymphatic taping techniques to address complications such as haematomas, seromas, keloid and hypertrophic scarring.
