K-Taping Occupational Therapy

The K-Taping Occupational Therapy course is primarily aimed to occupational therapists.

In the K-Taping Occupational Therapy course, all basic techniques and associated combination techniques for indications that are frequently used in your everyday therapeutic routine are presented. In addition, the basic techniques for lymphatic techniques and the application of Crosstape are presented and learned in practical exercises.

The content is similar to the K-Taping Pro course, but it has a higher relevance on the requirements in occupational therapy with practical association.

By participating the K-Taping Ergo 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
  • Fascia techniques
  • Lymphatic techniques

K-Taping courses have a high practical share in which the participants practice the techniques at each other. The learning control takes place during the practical exercises by our experienced instructors. This will enable you to include the K-Taping Therapy in your treatment right after the course. The high-quality and detailed colored course book contains all presented techniques and indications and serves you after the course as extensive practical handbook.

Requirement

The course requires anatomical and therapeutic knowledge. Participants should therefore have a therapeutic or medical education. Students or students undergoing training in therapeutic and medical careers may also attend the course.

The course fee includes the extensive color script as well as the K-Tape and Crosstape for the practical exercises.

Recommendation

It is recommended to wear comfortable clothes for dressing and undressing during the practical exercises as well as to bring a towel to the underlay.
