Learn cutting-edge, advanced equine taping techniques from industry leading experts in a hands-on environment.
FMT Equine addresses functional kinesiology taping methods to reduce or control pain*, manage swelling or edema, increase joint range of motion, improve muscle function.
Learn how to 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 and Farriers.
