Fascial Movement Taping
The most advanced movement-based taping methodology.
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. Fascial Movement Taping (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’.
FMT1 addresses theories and applications for pain, posture, edema, scars and neurological symptoms. Learn more about FMT »
FMT 2 builds on FMT 1 concepts, with an emphasis on myofascial pathways, movement therapy and performance enhancement. Learn more about FMT »

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 of Level I
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.”
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
Introduce the myofascial sequencing model
Learn movement assessment techniques to identify faulty motor patterns
Master functional taping applications for Performance Chains (including applications for special populations)
Integrate assessment of sport-specific movement patterns and the use of taping to improve sports performance (Power Taping)
