Nothing in the universe is static. Everything moves. Everything is dynamic. The human body is no exception. Movement is key to all healing regardless if your patient is pregnant or suffering from a car crash. It’s time for change. A revolutionary change. FMT lays out the argument of why we’ve been doing it wrong for 100 years. It presents new ways of thinking about acute and chronic care. It integrates the best treatments with kinesiology taping to deliver the best possible patient outcomes.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Not your average taping course. Fascial Movement Taping Certification is a certification process led by industry leading experts in functional movement assessment and treatment. Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) is based on the obvious yet largely overlooked concept of muscles acting as a chain. Say good-bye to thinking about origins and insertions and memorizing directions of tape. Say hello to a framework of ‘taping movement, not muscles’.
FMT LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATION
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. The course is intended for therapists and practitioners with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided.
EDUCATION OBJECTIVES LEVEL 1:
- Introduce the concept of a longitudinal muscle chain approach to the elastic therapeutic taping (Fascial Movement Taping)
- 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 . Corrective exercise strategies for movement mobility and stability dysfunctions will be integrated with taping protocols.
- Introduce a myofascial sequencing model of “taping movements, not muscles.”
- FMT LEVEL II CERTIFICATION
This course expands on the concepts of movement therapy and performance enhancement via functional taping methods that are taught in FMT Level 1. 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 therapists and practitioners who have taken FMT1. All supplies needed for the course are provided.
Education Objectives of Level II
1. Introduce the myofascial sequencing model
2. Learn movement assessment techniques to identify faulty motor patterns
3. Master functional taping applications for Performance Chains (including applications for special populations)
4. Integrate assessment of sport-specific movement patterns and the use of taping to improve sports performance (Power Taping)
