SHOULD I FEEL SOMETHING?
Some people feel a tingle from the menthol, and some people don’t, and that’s ok. The tape can still work even if you don’t feel a tingle. For most people, it takes 1-2 hours after applying the tape to start to feel some results. Rubbing the tape after application helps. Remember, Menthol and Magnesium will be re-activated when wet (ie - Shower, Sweat) (If you want to feel the tingle, consider doubling up on strips in the area, without overlapping the tape. **If this is your first time using Heali Tape, only use one strip for the first 24hours).
