FMT Basic & Performance

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to use kinesiology tape. You had to read a book or attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of applying tape. Not anymore.

Functional Movement Techniques (FMT) is a 2-part kinesiology taping certification led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy. FMT is based on the obvious yet largely overlooked concept of muscles acting as a chain. Say good-bye to agonizing over muscular origins and insertions and memorizing directions of tape. Say hello to a practical framework of ‘taping movement, not muscles.’

Who can get certified?

This course is intended for healthcare professionals, therapists and trainers. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs and personal trainers – depending on location and class type.

FMT Certified professionals receive an additional 10% discount on purchases after taking a class.

This course introduces the concept of movement therapy and enhancement via functional taping methods. It includes a review of the current literature supporting the theory of kinesiology taping for the purposes of rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, neuropathic pain, scar mobility and postural management. FMT Basic is an evidence-informed kinesiology taping course that redefines our understanding of the effects of elastic therapeutic taping on pain mitigation, circulation and proprioception. FMT Basic lays the groundwork for a practical framework of ‘taping movement, not muscles’ to replace an outdated model focused on directional taping to activate or inhibit muscles.

This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided.

Education Objectives of FMT Basic

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the physiological effects of kinesiology taping
  • Master functional taping and understand its role and use for the applications of rehabilitation, edema management, neuropathic pain, scar mobility and posture improvement.
  • Introduce the concept of a longitudinal muscle chain approach to the elastic therapeutic taping and a myofascial sequencing model of “Taping movements, not muscles.”
This course expands on the concepts of movement therapy and performance enhancement via functional taping methods that are taught in FMT Basic. The anatomy and physiology of myofascial slings is covered. Movement assessment to determine dysfunction in specific slings and how to apply tape in a manner that improves movement and function is done in a workshop, hands-on environment. Corrective exercise techniques to address joint mobility and stability dysfunctions along these myofascial pathways are presented.

This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided.
