SpiderTech is a non-medicated cotton kinesiology therapy tape that you apply to your body wherever it hurts. It mimics the elasticity and thickness of human skin and effectively lifts the skin away from the muscle so that all the small veins and capillaries can run freely and openly, bringing increased blood and oxygen to the area in pain allowing it to heal fast and promote increased recovery. It’s easy to apply, drug-free and waterproof and can be worn for up to five days.
