The EquiK-Taping course is aimed to therapists in equine medicine (osteopathy, physiotherapy) and veterinarians.
The EquiK-Taping course introduces the different basic techniques and associated combination techniques to indications that are commonly found in equine therapy. Unlike humans, who can take a certain posture independently, the horse to be treated must be put in the right position. Therefore, you also learn how to bring the horse in the right body position to the respective technique. In addition, the basic techniques for lymphatic techniques and the application of Crosstape are presented and learned in practical exercises.
By participating the EquiK-Taping course, you will get to know how to use the K-Taping Therapy for many diseases with following techniques:
- Muscle techniques,
- Ligament techniques
- Correction techniques
- Lymphatic techniques
K-Taping courses have a high practical share in which the participants practice the techniques in small groups on horses. The learning control takes place during the practical exercises by our experienced instructors. This will enable you to apply the K-Taping Therapy professionally right after the course. The high-quality and detailed coloured course book contains all presented techniques and indications and serves you after the course as extensive practical handbook.
The course requires anatomical knowledge of the horse. Participants should therefore have a therapeutic or medical education. Students undergoing training in therapeutic and medical careers may also attend the course.
The course fee includes the extensive colour script as well as the K-Tape and Crosstape for the practical exercises.
Comfortable / weather-resistant clothing is recommended, as the practical exercises are carried out indoors or outdoors.
