When a muscle becomes inflamed, the space between the skin and the muscle is compressed, which reduces the flow of lymph circulation in the layers of the dermis. This compression often stimulates the activity of nociceptors in the dermis that transmit pain. If the skin in the affected area is stretched before and during the application of the tape, the tape and the skin underneath will form a series of wave-shaped wrinkles when that part of the body returns to its neutral position.

This wrinkling effect is extremely important for the effectiveness of the Kinesio Taping Method. Thanks to this "lifting" of the skin, the space between the skin and the subcutaneous tissue increases (approximately 10 microns) and the lymphatic fluid is immediately transported from the interstitial space to the lymphatic channels. This increased subcutaneous space and improved lymphatic drainage results in less stimulation of nociceptors in the dermis. These physiological effects lead to an improvement in the body's regenerative processes, providing a more suitable environment for tissue regeneration.

Cupping is an ancient medical treatment whose origin in traditional Chinese medicine dates back to 300-400 BC. Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultures also have ancient records of the practice.

Today, cupping is still used regularly in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). These are glass cups of different sizes that are attached to the body with a suction method, promoting blood circulation and producing different healing effects.

By improving circulation, it reduces pain and relieves muscle discomfort, promoting the body's natural healing process.

When there is an energy imbalance in the body, the anomalies are reflected in the ear. The stimulation of specific auricular points helps to restore the general energy flow as well as to alleviate bodily ailments.

Auriculotherapy is a technique that is part of traditional Chinese medicine and is based on the stimulation of ear points linked to the locomotor system, physiological, psychological and emotional functions, in order to promote the energy balance of the organism.

It is a good complement for Shiatsu therapy practitioners. Auriculotherapy also complements other manual techniques for professionals such as masseurs, naturopaths, osteopaths, etc. In addition to the manual treatment of each professional applied in their practice, the patient will be placed on the ear, until the next session, some seeds or ionised balls that will create a long-term micro-stimulation in a reflex and energetic way, helping to enhance the treatment.
