About this book - Dr Kase Said, “I have long been aware that skin and subcutaneous tissue are related to health and diseases in the human body. Recently, papers and research supporting this concept have been released. Looking at those research papers, and could not help but think “Ah, as I expected,” and “Thank you for saying so.” I am glad but sometimes regret the time it took. At the same time, my Kinesio Taping Method has also evolved.”
For several decades, Dr Kase has been utilizing the Kinesio Taping Method to improve patient outcomes, reduce pain, and prevent injury. Today Kinesio Taping is widely used around the world and the science keeps evolving.
