Top 5 Reasons to Use Kinesiology Tape for Pregnancy Pain Relief

You’ve seen it in the pharmacy, maybe even used it on a sports injury, and now you may be hearing about kinesiology taping to relieve pregnancy pains and discomforts. If you’re considering using kinesiology tape on your baby belly, here are the top 5 reasons you should try it.

1. It’s effective

Kinesiology tape relieves discomfort by gently lifting the skin, allowing for easier blood flow while lending support to tired muscles. Using pregnancy tape also helps distribute the weight of your baby more evenly which reduces pressure on sensitive areas like your bladder and diaphragm. Kinesiology taping during pregnancy offers effective and reliable pain relief.


2. It’s safe

Kinesiology tape is 100% natural, drug-free, and safe for you and your baby. It is widely trusted by sports trainers and physical therapists. Pregnancy taping is completely non-invasive and has no side effects on the majority of people. If you have an allergy to adhesives, check out our Soft Touch Blush collection, made with a water-based adhesive to be sensitive-skin friendly.
