FMT Basic & Performance

Functional Movement Techniques - 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. Functional Movement Techniques (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’.

FMT Basic addresses theories and applications for pain, posture, edema, scars and neurological symptoms. Learn more about FMT »

FMT Performance builds on FMT Basic concepts, with an emphasis on myofascial pathways, movement therapy and performance enhancement. Learn more about FMT »

Vyne FMT Performance Courses

Coming soon…
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. 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 FMT Basic lays the groundwork for a practical framework of ‘taping movement, not muscles’ to replace an outdated model focused on directional taping to activate or inhibit muscles.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 course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided.

Education Objectives of FMT Basic

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • 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.
  • Introduce the concept of a longitudinal muscle chain approach to the elastic therapeutic taping and 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 BASIC. 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 practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided.

Education Objectives of FMT Performance

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Explore the concept of a longitudinal muscle chain approach to the elastic therapeutic taping and a myofascial sequencing model of “Taping movements, not muscles.”
  • Learn movement screening techniques to identify faulty motor patterns in breathing, squat, lunge, step, push and rolling movements and taping strategies to enhance these motor patterns.
  • Master functional taping applications for Performance Chains
  • Integrate assessment of sport-specific movement patterns and the use of taping to improve sports performance
