So, you’ve pulled it or strained it or sprained it or tweaked it, or you're looking for more support. Heali Tape can help you get moving again!

Clean and prepare the skin
- Wash and dry the area. Consider using rubbing alcohol or exfoliating to improve stick. Lotions, sunscreens and oil can prevent the tape from sticking.
- If you are applying tape to a hairy area, trimming long hair will result in a better stick.
