The purpose of the TogetherTape™ is to aid in healing a diastasis recti. The tape works in conjunction with the Diastasis Rehab Splint® to speed up the process for closing a diastasis recti. If for some reason you cannot wear the Diastasis Rehab Splint®, you can wear the tape by itself. Working in a similar fashion to a Butterfly Band-Aid, the tape works to bring together the muscles and connective tissue.
When the tape is stretched as it is applied, once placed on the skin the tape wants to recoil back to its original “unstretched” position. This continuous recoiling process on the skin sends a message from the skin to the connective tissue and muscles to move in the same direction as the tape is moving. The skin on your belly is very sensitive. It is therefore recommended not starting to use the tape until Week 4 of the Tupler Technique® Program. During this time you should prepare your skin with our nourishing Corrective Connective Tissue Cream.
Because of this sensitivity, we start out slow with the amount of tape used on the skin. During the first week you only use one piece above and one piece below your belly button. If you have an allergic reaction stop using the tape and wait a week. Use the Corrective Connective Tissue Cream during this time. Usually after a week your skin will be desensitized and you can start again. If all goes well after the first week, you can put two pieces above and two pieces below your belly button. With no skin reactions, progressing in week 3 to three pieces above and three pieces below your belly button. Continue with three pieces above and three pieces below for as long as you continue to use the TogetherTape™.One application should last you anywhere between 4-6 days. Between applications allow the skin for rest for one day before applying the tape again. This is a great time to use the Corrective Connective Tissue Cream. The tape is water resistant but not water proof so keep it as dry as you can when showering.
Instructions for applying tape.Take the paper backing off the middle piece of the tape by pulling each end to separate the middle piece from the end handles. Now stretch the tape just a little and place on your belly. Place it ¼ inch above your belly button. Smooth it over with your hand. Then take the paper off the end pieces. They should not be stretched. Do the same ¼ inch under your belly button. If you stretch it too much it will be too harsh on your skin because this increases the recoiling process.
Sizing for TogetherTape™ Sizing for the tape is determined by the size of your diastasis where it is the largest.You check your diastasis in three places. The size may be different in these three locations. The size is determined by the location wherever it is the largest.

“I started using the TogetherTape™ in the 4th week of the Tupler Technique® Program. After three weeks of using it when I went in for my session, my diastasis was smaller and my connective tissue felt shallower. I hardly notice it and I feel it is really helping.” Stephanie McManus
“Julie explained to me the importance of mobilizing my C-section scar in closing my diastasis, so I started using the TogetherTape™. This was perfect for me because I was uncomfortable touching it. After just a few weeks, I could see that my scar was much more mobile. Mobilizing my scar also got rid of my “muffin top.” Mary Rich
