Day 1 - IASTM {Price Includes Blade} & Kinesiology Taping


Time: 9am - 5pm



300 Commerce Valley Dr E, Thornhill, ON L3T 7X3

This is a 1 day Certification course that will teach practitioners a functional approach to IASTM featuring the M2T-Blade. This course is open to Health Care Practitioners such as Physical Therapist, Fitness Trainers, Chiropractor, Massage Therapist and Sports Therapist.

The M2T- Blade is the cornerstone of our entire course system, but in conjunction our course aim’s to teach a more well rounded way of treating patients.

Teaching proper use of the M2T is vital, but our course also includes functional assessment and muscle testing to implement prior to treatment, as well as corrective exercises to implement with the patient post M2T treatment.

We do this because we believe that the best way to solve many issues is to not only treat and affect the areas with a ‘hands on’ approach, but we then allow the patients to activate the faulty tissues and take them through the newfound range of motion.

Using both functional and muscle testing prior to treatment allows us to check then recheck to see if the protocol we attempted made a positive change.


What you will learn:

 Functional Assessment and Movement Screen

– Muscle Testing – IASTM History, Mechanics, and Practice Utilization

– Treatment Technique and Procedures {Full Body}

– Rehabilitation and Corrective Exercise at the end of our 1-day Functional Approach To IASTM

– At Level I, practitioners will be able to assess using 3 methods and apply Functional IASTM to the entire body and prescribing exercise post-treatment

Once Registered, practitioner will be shipped Booklet, Instrument, and will be granted free lifetime access to online education. 

Time: 9:00am to 5:00pm

Included in this course:

Expanding Boundaries in Kinesiology Taping Education

Prior to the M2T-FKT approach to Kinesiology Taping - the choices were limited and outdated.

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.

Functional Kinesiology Taping Course - What you will learn

  • Functional Assessment & Muscle Testing - Every client is different, why is all taping methods the same?

  • Myofascial Methods to Kinesiology Tape - Our bodies move in locomotion, and not individually!

  • Full Body Kinesiology Taping Techniques

  • Assess, Correct & Tape for over 50 conditions and improve performance!

  • Elevate your treatments and workouts and learn the new breed of taping - FKT.

At the end of this course, Therapist, Doctors, and Trainers will understand:

  • The physiological effects of kinesiology taping

  • Master functional taping and understand its role and use for the applications of rehabilitation, edema management, neuropathic pain, scar mobility and posture improvement.

  • Introduce the concept of fascia and muscle chain approach to the elastic therapeutic taping and a myofascial sequencing model of “Taping" movements, not muscles.
