Course Description

Changing soft tissue function will significantly help your patients regain mobility, strength and control, especially when used alongside your joint manipulation skills. Using IASTM and taping will get you immediate results which are obvious to both you and your patient.

This course will include the principles behind IASTM and kinesiology taping. They will be taught with a great focus on practical application rather than theoretical detail. You will understand when, why and how to use each technique and with a huge emphasis on pre- and post-testing, you can expect immediate and obvious changes in pain, range of movement and strength in the patient in front of you. Whilst you will learn a whole range of specific techniques which you can apply to your patients on Monday morning, the course is structured around using these as examples of the underlying principles.

The 3 questions you will learn to ask of any therapeutic intervention are:

  1. What is the functional deficit I am trying to correct
  2. Which technique and application is likely to achieve that
  3. How can I immediately check that I got the result I was looking for

You will leave with a clear idea of what each technique will achieve in terms of functional outcome and therefore be able to make your own personal treatment plans based on the knowledge gained on this course. This means you will not have to keep consulting an IASTM or Taping manual! This is the course for people who like to think their way around a clinical problem rather than using a cookbook approach. This seminar is very practical and will give you new tools that you can immediately add to your existing toolbox – regardless of how you practice.
