Ganglion Cysts disappear with KUMBRINK-CROSSTAPE


Posted by Leigh MacKenzie, May 15, 2014

Since 2010, I’ve been promoting K-Tape and the K-Taping Academy in Canada. Cross-Tape has been the most unique out of all K-Tape products as it offers effective pain therapy options within taping and on it’s own. During tradeshows and workshops across Canada, I have enjoyed seeing the reactions from health professionals when the Cross-Tape is applied to the skin via the finger tip technique described below:

It is very easy to use KUMBRINK-CROSSTAPE®. Carefully pull the KUMBRINK-CROSSTAPE® off the backing paper and let a corner of the tape stick to your fingertip. In doing so, touch the KUMBRINK-CROSSTAPE® as little as possible as some of the charge may be lost when the tape is touched repeatedly. When you position the KUMBRINK-CROSSTAPE® over an acupuncture or trigger point approx. one centimetre parallel to the skin, you can often see that the charged tape is attracted to/pulled towards this oppositely charged area.

On April 26, 2014, I was exhibiting at the annual PABC conference and was showing the benefits of Cross-Tape to many of the members.  Physiotherapist, Linda Lawerance from Burrard Physiotherapy, approach the OrthoCanada table and was interested in the K-Taping method and Cross-Tape in particular. During my pitch I mentioned that Cross-Tape can be used on ganglion cysts, and in some cases the cysts have disappeared over time. Linda was quite interested in the product as she had a cyst or her own wrist. I then placed a medium sized Cross-Tape on the top of the area and advised her to keep it on for 10 days. Two and half weeks later, I received this email from Linda:

Hello Leigh,

I was chatting with you at your trade stand at the recent PABC/CPTBC AGM  in Vancouver. You may remember applying one of the criss-cross tapes on my wrist ganglion  Well…. It’s gone! I applied the tape for about a week and am pleased to say there is a minimal bump now. So, yes, it does work.

Kind regards,
