FMT Pediatrics & Geriatrics

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to use kinesiology tape with special patient populations like the elderly or children.

You had to read a book or attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of applying tape.

Not anymore.

FMT kinesiology taping certifications (Basic, Performance, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Canine and Equine) are led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy. FMT certifications are 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 Kinesiology Taping Certification courses are led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy AND you get to take home supplies from the course to use immediately on your patients and athletes.

FMT Kinesiology Taping Certifications are intended for healthcare professionals, therapists and trainers. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OT and personal trainers – depending on location and class type. FMT Certified professionals receive an additional 10% discount on purchases after taking a class.
