FMT Basic Kinesiology Taping Certification
FMT Basic introduces the evidence-based approach to taping for pain, enhancing fluid dynamics, posture, nerve entrapment and scars. 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 FMT Basic lays the groundwork for a practical framework of ‘taping movement, not muscles’ to replace an outdated model focused on directional taping to activate or inhibit muscles.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 8-hour certification course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided. There are no prerequisites for FMT Basic.
FMT Performance Kinesiology Taping Certification
This course expands on the concepts taught in FMT Basic and explores enhancing human movement and performance via functional taping methods (movement based). The anatomy and physiology of myofascial lines are covered. Movement screening is used to determine dysfunction in specific anatomical planes of motion and how to apply tape in a manner that improves movement and function. Learning is primarily done in a workshop, hands-on environment.
This 8-hour certification course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided. FMT Basic is a prerequisite for FMT Performance.
FMT Blades – IASTM Certification
FMT BLADES introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). The FMT Blades certification will review screening dysfunctional movement patterns and utilizing soft tissue tools to improve patient outcomes. The anatomy, physiology and neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered. IASTM intervention strategies will also be combined with kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a comprehensive approach to patient care in a workshop, hands-on environment. This 8-hour certification course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with soft tissue techniques.
FMT Blades Advanced – IASTM Certification
FMT Blades Advanced introduces the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding and neuro-sensory pain modulation via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. The anatomy, physiology and neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered, along with a review of the concept of interlayer connective tissue gliding using a rubber sleeve for added tissue traction. FMT Blades Advanced also addresses pain modulation via specific mechano-reception stimulation using the novel hair comb attachment. This 6-hour course is intended for practitioners and therapists with a more advanced understanding of soft tissue techniques.
FMT RockPods explores the science of tissue gliding, traction and decompression with easy to use myofascial cups. Myofascial Cupping has been around since the early 19th century – only recently has the image of purple circles on professional athlete’s backs created attention to an ancient myofascial therapy. The cups and techniques have changed over time, but the basic premise of the cups providing suction to decompress the underlying tissue remains the same. FMT RockPods explores the science of tissue gliding, traction and decompression with easy to use myofascial cups. 6 hours.
FMT RockFloss explores the science of compression band flossing and fascial shearing to help improve joint mobility, reduce pain and enhance movement. The FMT RockFloss Certification introduces the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding to help reduce tissue swelling, improve movement and modulate pain with the use of ‘compression band floss’. This course will cover the anatomy, physiology and neurology of the effects of compression band flossing on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue compression. Interventions with compression band floss (including direction and pressure concepts) will be reviewed and integrated into current rehabilitative concepts. 6 hours.
