The technique is practical, easy and effective. It is designed to be quick to apply as it is very simple-usually 1 or 2 pieces of tape. Results are easy to access and often profound. Participants will practice taping on several common musculoskeletal injuries/ conditions. This course is designed for the practitioner who works in an environment where the injury/ condition is well defined, and results are paramount. A holistic protocol in that the entire body is assessed and treated, not a specific area. The goal is to optimize body function. Participants will practice protocols to de-stress the body and encourage its natural healing abilities. Once this has been achieved there is an opportunity to further enhance healing by applying massage or any other technique. Results will be much more effective on a de-stressed body.
