Over 3700 therapists in Canada have been trained by K-Taping Academy Canada, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to apply K-Taping Therapy effectively in their clinical practice. This non-pharmaceutical, holistic therapy is renowned for its ability to support various physiotherapy treatments and manage a wide range of clinical conditions, including low back or neck pain, muscle tension, joint instabilities, disc problems, migraines, tinnitus, menstrual pain, and some urinary disorders. It is also an effective approach for managing post-operative edema, lymphedema, preventing injuries, and preparing athletes for training and competition, improving circulation, muscle function, and pain management.

About the K-Taping® PRO course

K-Taping Pro is a two-day (16 hour) course that teaches the basic functions and effects of K-Taping Therapy. It covers applications for muscle, ligament, functional, and fascia corrections, as well as introducing lymphatic correction techniques. In this course, you'll learn to apply combination techniques for a variety of conditions, from impingement syndrome to plantar fasciitis. Participants will also receive a course manual, practice tape, and a certificate upon completion. This course is perfect for physicians, physiotherapists, chiropractors, athletic therapists, and other healthcare professionals interested in expanding their treatment options. We follow all Federal and Provincial guidelines to ensure your safety.

In the K-Taping Pro course students are taught four application techniques

Muscle Techniques: Functional disorders in the muscles often cause an imbalance between agonists and antagonists. Muscle taping techniques are used to correct these imbalances. They allow the muscle to return to its normal function and adaptations can be made to the loading capacity and the movement patterns again.

Ligament Techniques: The ligament technique is used for injury and overuse of tendons and ligaments. It relieves pressure and pain, and improves loading capacity, resulting in quicker healing.

Corrective Techniques: Are divided into functional correction and fascia correction. The functional corrective technique is used for the correction of abnormal bony positions, such as the correction of an abnormal patella position. Functional correction requires maximal stretching of the tape before application. Fascia correction is used for adhesions within muscle fascia, resulting in a loosening of fascia and pain reduction.

Lymphatic Techniques: The Lymphatic Correction techniques are used when lymphflow is disrupted. These techniques lift the skin. This increases the space between skin and subcutaneous tissue and lymph fluid is able to flow easier out of the interstitial space into the lymphatic circulation.
