Digital Seminar - Also available: DVD | Live Webinar


Kinesiology taping is such a versatile tool! Exercise tolerant, water resistant & it augments other therapies very well; no wonder it’s so popular!

…but many practitioners are relying on outdated models that focus on directional taping, specific percentages of stretch applied to the tape and the concept of activation or inhibition….

Set yourself apart & become the certified expert that patients and employers can trust! Backed by an evidence-based strategy, you’ll explore a modern approach that emphasizes taping for movement, not muscles. The kinesthetic guidance and neurosensory input provided by placing tape on the skin accelerates motor learning in a powerful way.


  • How to combine taping with functional movement for active treatment
  • Advanced interventions that integrate the latest neuroscience research
  • Techniques that prolong longevity of your manual therapy & corrective exercise
  • How to add a cash-based revenue stream that boosts your income

Filled with applications that accelerate recovery, maximize performance, and minimize pain and dysfunction, this simple and cost-effective solution will help you deliver superior treatment and get impressive results. With techniques that cover a diverse population from low functional ability to elite athletes, you’ll learn skills that you can apply the very next day!
