What is Tack Tape?

Tack Tape is a type of kinesiology tape, a super stretchy band of athletic tape made from elasticised
cotton fabric that’s strategically placed on injured parts of the body or areas requiring extra
support, to promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation.

The thinness and elasticity of
Tack Tape is like your own skin, so while you’re wearing it you can enjoy free, unrestricted movement
and long-lasting comfort.
Tack Tape differs significantly from traditional pain-relief or muscle strapping tape, which is designed
to provide rigid support and minimise movement.

One of the main benefits of Tack Tape is
comes from its high stretchability that allows it to be worn like a second skin and provide effective
treatment to targeted areas of the body without interfering with movement. Tack Tape is a go-to
for athletes dealing with pulled muscles, runner’s knee, shin splints, and more. After recovery, you
can wear Tack Tape to maintain optimum performance and reduce the likelihood of future injuries.

How does Tack Tape work?

The primary function of Tack Tape is based upon the principles of kinesiology—the scientific study of the body’s movements—to assist and support muscles and the way they interact with the body. Tack Tape tackles pain through two basic systems: physical and neurological..


  • The lifting action of the Tack Tape can alleviate pressure on pain receptors located just beneath the skin, giving both instant and longer-lasting relief.
  • The vacuum created by lifting can also help reduce swelling and encourage lymphatic drainage.
  • By removing lactic acid buildup from target areas, Tack Tape can boost muscle recovery and minimise fatigue, cramping and delayed-onset muscle soreness.
  • Worn over time, Tack Tape can “re-educate” muscles towards proper movement.


  • The sensory stimulation of nerve fibres in targeted areas may help to alleviate chronic pain.
  • Worn everyday, Tack Tape can provide 24-hour physical and neurological support for muscles that may help enhance everyday performance for both kids and adults.
Benefits of Tack Tape:
  • Improves endurance by supporting key muscles and strengthening weak zones
  • Enhances blood flow and lymphatic draining for better overall circulation
  • Relaxes over-worked and over-stressed muscles by providing targeted stability and support
  • Helps to manage pain and swelling for injured areas without compromising movement
  • Regular usage can help athletes return to sport quicker and stave off future injuries.
