We love hearing what people think of our products, and will share a few highlights below!
Our favorite quote:
"The reason I’m so impressed with KT tape is because as soon as I put it on my knees feel better. The tape seems to stabilize the kneecaps and support the knees. I think the strips beneath the kneecaps hold them up and the strips on either side keep them from moving sideways. That’s the best way I can describe the sensation. I can’t feel that there’s any additional blood flow or body heat but both the Pro and Pro Oxygen tapes are definitely doing something that makes my knees feel better. And the feeling lasts as long as the tape is on."
