Lesson Plan

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.

FMT Advanced expands on the concepts taught in FMT Basic Kinesiology Taping and explores strategies to enhance human movement and performance through evidence-based functional taping methods. The anatomy and physiology of myofascial lines will be covered, the fascial lines are used in conjunction with kinesiology taping techniques to support efficient human movement. Sport-specific taping techniques are introduced, and students will have opportunities to assess dysfunction in specific anatomical planes of motion.  Tape application techniques are explored and practiced with an emphasis on taping fascial chains to improve movement and enhance function. Students will learn techniques in a hands-on laboratory environment where they will have ample practice and instructor feedback on their techniques.   

These courses are intended for health professionals with all levels of prior taping experience. All supplies needed for the course and lab experiences are provided. 

Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss, practice and integrate the concept of longitudinal muscle chain kinesiology taping
  • Discuss, demonstrate and interpret movement screening techniques to evaluate functional and dysfunctional movement patterns
  • Demonstrate and discuss the concepts of longitudinal fascial chain kinesiology taping
  • Demonstrate and evaluate effective functional taping applications based on findings in movement assessment
  • Compare and contrast sport-specific movement patterns and how kinesiology tape improves sports performance
  • Compare and contrast upper and lower extremity helical fascial chain taping applications
  • Introduce, interpret and practice applications for compression band floss in the upper and lower extremity as well as the trunk
  • Critically analyze movement screening and correlated tape application for specific sports

This course is 6 hours in length and a 30 Question multiple choice quiz will be required after completing the course to receive your CEU certificate. A 70% test score is required to pass and receive CEUs. The quiz can be open book and unlimited attempts on the quiz are allowed.
