FMT Equine Kinesiology TapingLearn to tape advanced equine applications on animals from experts.
FMT Equine addresses functional kinesiology taping methods to reduce or control pain, manage swelling or edema, increase joint range of motion, improve muscle function; and maintain a level of functionality and comfort for the horse throughout the rehabilitation process. Taping applications to maintain functionality and comfort in training and assist with recovery will be explored as a means to facilitating overall soundness in the equine athlete. FMT Equine taping techniques utilize “longitudinal anatomy”, or a “movement patterns” concept as a means of connecting the brain to the body’s uninterrupted fascial web in order to enhance rehab and athletic performance via cutaneous (skin), and hair follicle stimulation.
This 10-hour certification course is intended for Veterinarians, Vet Techs, Osteopathic Physicians, Equine Chiropractors, Equine Physical Therapists, Equine Massage Therapists/BodyWorkers and Equine trainers. with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided. There is a 2 hour online FMT EQUINE prerequisite before taking the 8 hour FMT EQUINE live course.
