Kinesiotaping

The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Both Kinesio® Tex Tape and the training protocol have shown results that would have been unheard of using previous methods and materials.

Kinesio Tex Tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, enhance performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis.

How it works

The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process and to provide extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Kinesio Tex Tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric.

It can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities and is effective during the rehabilitative and chronic phases on an injury as well as being used for preventative measures.

What does Certified Kinesio Taping® Practitioner (CKTP) mean?

The Kinesio Taping® Association International takes this designation very seriously. In order to begin the CKTP certification process, a practitioner has taken a minimum of 24 class hours of KT1, KT2 and KT3 seminars, and may have received additional advanced training in a particular area of practice. Certification itself requires the passing of a written examination and practical skills demonstration.

In earning and maintaining CKTP status, your practitioner demonstrates a commitment to the highest standards of patient care.
