In K Taping, the tape pulls the upper layer of the skin that helps in creating some space between muscle and dermis. Some pressure is relieved between the dermis and the muscle by creating the space between lymph channels. Better lymph drainage is done in the affected area and more space is created for the lymph flow. During the injury, the space between the muscle and the epidermis is compressed making the receptor nerve constantly .

send the message to the brain that pain occurs when light touch or pressure is applied

K Taping theory alters the information that is sent to the brain causing less reaction to the body. It removes all the blockages which slow down the healing process and makes the body work normally.
