Get trained from leading experts in the movement industry.
Nothing in the universe is static. Everything moves.
The human body is no exception.
Movement is key to all healing, regardless if you are working with an elite athlete or someone suffering from a car crash.
Functional Movement Techniques (FMT) Certification courses are led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy.
The FMT Series certification courses are intended for healthcare professionals, therapists and trainers. Please refer to the FAQs for the prerequisites for each FMT certification and CEU allocation.
This course introduces the concept of movement therapy and enhancement via functional taping methods. It includes a review of the current literature supporting the theory of kinesiology taping for the purposes of rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, neuropathic pain, scar mobility and postural management.
FMT Basic is an evidence-informed kinesiology taping course that redefines our understanding of the effects of elastic therapeutic taping on pain mitigation, circulation and proprioception. Learn more about FMT Basic!
This course expands on the concepts of movement therapy and performance enhancement via functional taping methods that are taught in FMT Basic. The anatomy and physiology of myofascial slings is covered. Movement assessment to determine dysfunction in specific slings and how to apply tape in a manner that improves movement and function is done in a workshop, hands-on environment. Corrective exercise techniques to address joint mobility and stability dysfunctions along these myofascial pathways are presented. Learn more about FMT Performance!
FMT Special Populations
This course introduces the concept of movement therapy and enhancement via functional taping methods with populations who require special circumstances. The populations include geriatric, pediatric and pregnant patient populations.
The course includes a review of the current literature supporting the theory of kinesiology taping for the purposes of rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, neuropathic pain, scar and postural management for these populations. Future Rocktape courses.
FMT Movability introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement to create simple and effective home care mobility and stability programs. FMT Movability is a new paradigm for enhancing human movement. This course will clarify the ‘ why’ behind using balls, bands, rollers, and tape to improve mobility and stability of the body using a joint-by-joint approach.
By using movement assessment to determine planar dysfunction, participants will learn how to determine if the dysfunction is primarily a mobility or stability problem. Learn more about FMT Movability!
FMT Equine addresses functional kinesiology taping methods to reduce or control pain, manage swelling or edema, increase joint range of motion, improve muscle function; and maintain a level of functionality and comfort for the horse throughout the rehabilitation process.
Taping applications to maintain functionality and comfort in training and assist with recovery will be explored as a means to facilitating overall soundness in the equine athlete. Future RockTape courses.
Although our FMT courses differ in scope and purpose, we base our training on four key principals.
All courses incorporate screening movement as the basis for making changes with the techniques taught in the course.
We only promote what has been clinically proven. The insert-to-origin method is interesting but the science does not back it up. What has been proven is that kinesiology tape helps promote lymphatic flow.
Focus on Fascia with a longitudinal muscle chain approach to understanding movement. Movement and faults must be understood as part of a system.
We don’t do anything like everyone else. We want our courses to be fun. When you’re having fun, you’re engaged – and when you’re engaged, you learn.
