A Kine­sio Uni­ver­si­ty approved course. 2 day course designed to intro­duce par­tic­i­pants to the sci­ence, assess­ment and appli­ca­tion tech­niques of the Kine­sio Tap­ing Method. Lec­ture Tuto­ri­als of the his­to­ry, sci­ence and the­o­ry of stim­u­lus trans­mis­sion through skin and result­ing ther­a­peu­tic ben­e­fit across effer­ent and affer­ent sys­tems is reviewed. Cor­rec­tions for Epi­der­mis, Der­mis, Fas­cia, Space, and Mus­cle in case study for­mat are pre­sent­ed. Lec­ture and demon­stra­tion by the instruc­tor, then par­tic­i­pants per­form the Man­u­al Assess­ments and Move­ment Assess­ments. Dis­cus­sion of the assess­ment flow charts to deter­mine cor­rect appli­ca­tions and gen­er­al pro­gres­sion of treat­ment clin­i­cal­ly.

Day Two con­tin­ues with instruc­tion and demon­stra­tion of assess­ment and tap­ing pro­ce­dures for the Mechan­i­cal, Ten­don, Lig­a­ment and Circulatory/Lymphatic Cor­rec­tions in case study for­mat. Time is allot­ted for ques­tions and dis­cus­sion of the assess­ment flow charts to deter­mine cor­rect appli­ca­tions and gen­er­al pro­gres­sion of treat­ment clin­i­cal­ly. Each stu­dent will com­plete a short assess­ment of prac­ti­cal tap­ing skills at the end of Day Two. Par­tic­i­pants will receive a full col­or Kine­sio Tap­ing Work­book and a 60-day access code to the KTAI data­base.

Dur­ing hands-on lab ses­sions, course instructor(s) will eval­u­ate each participant’s techniques/skills learned to deter­mine pro­fi­cien­cy for course com­ple­tion. Prac­ti­cal exam at end of course will assess your new knowl­edge. At the end of the course each par­tic­i­pant will be giv­en a course eval­u­a­tion and a self reflec­tive ques­tion­naire. This course con­tent is not intend­ed for use by any par­tic­i­pants out­side the scope of their license or reg­u­la­tion.

Please bring scis­sors and wear prop­er attire for tap­ing (tank top & shorts). Bring a yoga mat if you have one.
