Nausea caused by chemotherapy

CureTape Sample Request

Many practices assist clients during chemotherapy. It appears that many clients benefit from applying this taping application during or after chemotherapy and experience fewer nausea symptoms. Although there is no scientific evidence as to why this application works, it is good to know that this possibility exists. The whole process of chemotherapy is difficult enough; this way you can reduce the side effects. Many clients respond very positively.

How do you explain the effect of CureTape® on stomach problems?

This taping application falls under segmental taping. The body is anatomically made up of “segments”. Organs and other body parts within one segment are controlled by the same spinal nerve. There is a relationship between the diaphragm, the stomach and the taped skin area. The “stimulus” provided by the tape causes a decrease in “tissue tension” in the stomach area, which reduces or even eliminates the symptoms.

How do you tape in case of stomach complaints and nausea?

Tape 1: 2 I-strips – ventral side

Cut two I-strips of CureTape® and measure the distance in the stretched position from the xiphoid process (sword-shaped attachment on the lower sternum) along the lower rib cage towards the lateral.

The starting point for both tapes is the xiphoid process. The client puts his arms in the neck or stretches them upwards and breathes in to the maximum. While slowly exhaling, apply the tape along the lower rib towards caudal and lateral. Do not stretch the tape.


Tape 2: dorsal sideThe length of this I-strip is measured in stretched position at the height of Th 12 over almost the entire width of the torso. To avoid irritation, we recommend cutting a notch in the middle of the strip to make it easier to attach the tape without forming folds on the skin. The client puts the skin on stretch by placing his arms in the neck. Apply the middle part of the tape at the level of Th12. Let the client move sideways in the opposite direction of where you apply the tape. Repeat the same on the opposite side. Do not stretch the tape.
