You will get the tips of Y shape today. Which is different basic effects from I shape.
Y shape has 4 basic effects with different taping methods. It also called one-end bifurcated type, it can wrap muscles groups. Based on different force bearing points, it also has the effect of support pulling, one-way retraction, surface skin lifting muscle relaxation or strengthening, as well as the formation of right and left pressure differences. Corresponding instructions are as follow
1. Apply the connection point, then stretch the bifurcations to wrap the muscle groups.
Apply the connection points, stretch the bifurcations and wrap the muscle groups in circularity to fix wrapped muscle groups. The central point retracts inward, and directions of flow guidance gather toward connection points.
When muscle groups are wrapped in circularity, the pressure difference takes shape between these two branches. It can be generally applied right above the area of muscle to make the muscle proceed to locomotive state.
2. Apply the connection point, then stretch evenly the bifurcations on the muscle
Affix the connection point, then two bifurcations shall be applied onto the skin while stretching evenly.
This will make the skin form the venous value effects of flowing to joint points.
When applying in an opposite direction of muscle, it will relax the muscle and slow down the blood backflow.
When applying in the same direction of muscle, it will strengthen the muscular strength and promote the improvement of blood oxygen content.
The connection points are usually applied near lymph glands(when it is ascertained to be a non-bacterial inflammation). Bifurcated branches are usually applied onto the joints of the two adjacent muscle groups to treat fascia tissue fluid at joints. It is generally used in clearing non-bacterial inflammation.
3. Apply the connection point, stretch entirety bifurcations on the muscles.
Apply the joint points, then stretch the bifurcated branches' entirety and apply it onto the skin surface flatly.
Since the force of connection points may not comply with that of bifurcated branches, lifting may take shape underneath the skin in joint points or bifurcated branches. Open the subcutaneous space and the skin retracts in one direction. Meanwhile, treat the skin beneath the bifurcated branches. However, the force as well as effects and the speed of flow guidance in this type are inferior to that of I shape. in addition, the coverage is larger than other type.
4. Apply bifurcations, then stretch to the connection point.
Apply bifurcations, stretch it in an arc or straight direction and apply it onto the middle part. Then apply it onto the joint points to support the muscle and cause larger areas of muscle in the joint points to shrink upward.
Using different exerting ways, meanwhile, can form a reacting force, two forces that will act on the central bifurcation point to form a triangular wear-stress zone. Muscles in the zone will be forcefully supported. For this technique, it is usually very difficult to achieve flow guidance since the operation technique is harder.
