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". Performance 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 INSTRUCTOR: Conor Collins, RMT/ Michelle Duncan, RMT DATE: Saturday 4 Nov 20176 9am till 5pm LOCATION: Coastal Sports & Wellness 15 Dartmouth Road, Suite 200, Bedford NS COST: $349 (on or before 6 Oct 17 ) $399 (on or after 7 Oct 17 ) E-book included in the cost. *email us about a student discount*
