End-to-End Taping Technique

This is the most common technique and is essential to get right if you want to make your applications last. Tear and remove the backing tape 2-3cm from one end and apply the tape to the skin with 0% stretch to create an anchor. Continue to apply the remaining tape at the desired stretch whilst peeling away the backing paper. Finally, leave 2-3cm at the other end with 0% stretch for the remaining anchor.

Centre Taping Technique

This technique is often used to apply SPORTTAPE over a point of pain or around a joint. Just remember to always handle the backing paper and not the glue. Tear the centre of the backing paper and peel back either side leaving 2-3cm at each end. Then apply the exposed tape to the skin with the desired stretch (often 50%). Finish by anchoring either end with 0% stretch.
