Functional Movement Techniques Certification
Series: FMT Performance
Discover the effects and benefits
of Kinesiology Taping on pain, movement, fluid dynamics, posture, and more!
Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to use kinesiology
tape. No more books or expensive classes! The first course in the Functional
Movement Techniques (FMT) Certification Series, FMT Basic, addresses theories
and applications for pain, posture, edema, scars, and nerve entrapment
FMT Basic is a 2–part kinesiology taping certification by industry leading
experts in movement assessment and therapy. FMT Basic is based on the obvious,
yet largely overlooked, concept of muscles acting as a chain and understanding
human movement. Say good–bye to agonizing over muscular origins and insertions
and memorizing directions of tape, and hello to a practical framework of "taping
movement, not muscles."
This 8–hour 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, and postural management. The course
is intended for therapists and practitioners with all levels of experience with
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

mobility, and posture improvement

scissors, and movement assessment equipment.
