Kinesio-Taping Seminar in Chicago

Many of you enjoyed the posts we had about taping and techniques for endurance athletes.  Abby, has been featured on the blog before and is hosting a clinic for Chicagoans.  Here is the info for their event:

Have you been exposed to kinesio-taping and have no idea on how to use it?

Would you want to learn how to know where to apply tape and the best application procedure to get the best results?

Do you have 4 hours to learn a technique that you can use the next day on your patients, friends, and family?

Muscle Vector Taping (MVT)© is a specific application protocol for kinesiology tape utilizing manual muscle testing as a diagnostic tool.

Come learn from Dr. Konrad Grzeszkowiak and colleague Abby Kramer about what kinesiology tape is and how the application of tape during specific movement can help your patients (and yourself) reduce pain, increase range of motion, and increase muscle tone.

In addition to learning about the most up to date and relevant research about kinesiology tape and its uses, you will learn:

~ How to evaluate and asses lower extremity movement during basic movement screens

~ How to manually muscle test accurately and consistently the major muscles of the lower extremity

~ How to use Muscle Vector Taping© technique to facilitate an inhibited muscle and improve motor movement patterns

Included with this seminar is a free roll of Rock Tape (kinesiology tape) and a printed version of the power point presentation - where you can refer to the techniques of taping taught; the manual muscle tests shown; and the functional assessment screens that teach you how to accurately diagnose the major dysfunction in the lower extremity.

Seminar Cost: $50
First 5 to RSVP get an extra $10 off for a total of $40*

*The Tape alone is $20 a roll at retail stores

Our mission is to provide an inexpensive, efficient, and effective method to find and correct dysfunctional movement patterns in the body. These dysfunctions can be corrected with minimal intervention using manual muscle testing and kinesiology tape as a method of enhancing movement and function while decreasing pain.

Muscle Vector Taping (MVT)© is a specific application protocol for kinesiology tape utilizing manual muscle testing as a diagnostic tool. Taping for specific muscles in a specific vector of movement increases muscle tone and response. This method of application has been studied and proven to be effective in increasing muscle tone, and leading the practitioner to the primary muscles of dysfunction. is a specific application protocol for kinesiology tape utilizing manual muscle testing as a diagnostic tool.
