Acti-Tape Step by Step Instructions: Diaphragm Support


  • In a standing position, raise the arms above the head and breathe out.


  • Apply the centre part of an I-strip just below the centre of the ribcage without stretch as shown.
  • Apply both ends of the strip with a slight stretch, following the contour of the ribcage out onto either side of the waist.


  • Maintain the same position, breathe normally. Apply another I-strip on the back at waist level. With a slight stretch, apply both ends of the strip to overlap with the ends of the first strip.



  • Smooth down the strips firmly to complete.
