Intro to Kinesiology Taping: An Introduction to the Equine KinesiologyTaping (Basic Equine Kinesiology Taping Concepts, Kinesiology Taping Muscle Applications)
The Intro course is designed to introduce practitioners to the Equine Kinesiology Taping. During this eight-hour class, the instructor will introduce Equine Kinesiology Taping concepts, theory and history, and describe the unique properties of Kinesiology Tape. During lab sessions, attendees will experiment with the application of Kinesiology Tape on themselves followed by a demonstration of the basics of equine functional assessment where attendees will have time to practice basic muscle and joint applications of Kinesiology Tape on the horses. Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to dicuss and apply the Kinesiology Taping to relax overuse syndromes, stimulate weak muscles, and decrease pain and swelling.
Intermediate Kinesiology Taping: KinesiologyTaping Concepts & Corrective Techniques (prerequisite is completion of Intro to Kinesiology Taping)
The intermediate course builds on the material learned in the introductory course During this eight-hour class, the instructor will introduce the five Corrective Techniques (Functional, Space, Fascia, Ligament/Tendon, and Lymphatic) and discuss their application in a variety of clinical conditions. During lab sessions, attendees will have ample time to practice applying the corrective techniques to a variety of equine conditions. Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to discuss and apply the Equine Kinesiology Taping to equine conditions.
Advanced Kinesiology Taping: Advanced Clinical Applications and/or Special Focus (Prerequisite is completion of Intro to Equine Introductory and Intermediate Kinesiology Taping courses) Coming soon TBA
