Kinesio® Taping, developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase, is a taping method that facilitates the body’s healing process to allow support and stability to muscles and joints. It has been used extensively in the field of rehabilitation and sports medicine worldwide including America, Korea, Australia and Europe. Other applications include musculoskeletal rehabilitation, postural and muscle re-education, pain and swelling control, hand therapy and lymphoedema. These courses are approved by the Kinesio® Taping Association (KTA). As a part of the KTA sequential education program one must attend and complete a KTA approved Level 1-3 course to sit for the examination and become a Certified Kinesio® Taping Practitioner (CKTP). The structure of the course is as follow:

KT1- Fundamental Concepts
(To be taken in conjunction with KTA approved KT2 course)

  • 8 hour course designed to introduce practitioners to the KT Method
  • covers the four major physiological effects- skin, muscle, circulatory/lymphatic and joint
  • features lab sessions to practice KT applications
  • completion will allow attendees to relax overuse syndrome, stimulate weak muscles and
  • decrease pain and swelling


KT2- Advanced Concepts and Corrective Techniques
(Attendees must complete KTA approved KT1 course before taking KT2)

  • 8 hour course that builds on materials learned in KT1
  • covers the six corrective techniques- mechanical, functional, space, fascia ligament/tendon and lymphatic)
  • features lab sessions to practice KT applications
  • completion will allow attendees to apply the KT Method to orthopedic and neurological conditions

Upon completion of this KT-1 and KT-2 course, the participants will be able to apply the concepts of Kinesio® Taping and learn various taping techniques for the treatment of the spine and upper/lower extremity dysfunction.

KT3- Kinesio® Taping Certification Course
(Attendees must complete KTA approved KT1 and 2 courses before taking KT3)

  • 8 hour course
  • combines KT1 and 2 coursework
  • features lab sessions to practice KT applications
  • covers some of the more advanced techniques of the KT method
  • tailored to specific conditions or applications by each instructor
  • upon completion, attendees will be eligible to take the CKTP exam

KT3 course covers advanced techniques in various clinical conditions. Emphasis will be on clinical reasoning and interactive discussion. Upon completion, participants will be entitled to become a KTA member and have access to the Kinesio® Taping Database for 12 months.
