The first day includes Lecture Tutorials of the history and development of Kinesio Tex Tapes and the Kinesio Taping Method. The science and theory regarding how stimulus is transmitted through the skin and the resulting therapeutic benefit across efferent and afferent systems is reviewed. Taping concepts are presented in a “superficial to deep” progression. Day One includes corrections for Epidermis, Dermis, Superficial and Deep Fascia, Space, and Muscle in case study format for a variety of conditions. During time, Participants then perform the Manual Assessments and Movement Assessments and follow the step by step instructions for correct taping technique based on the case study presented.
