Fascial movement taping course from RockTape (Jan 8th/9th, 2016)

RockTape will be delivering two practical kinesiology taping seminars within the Human Performance Centre in the New Year on Friday 8th Jan (Fascial Movement Taping Level 1) and Saturday 9th Jan (Fascial Movement Taping Level 2), with 50% discount on the usual course fees for all students within the School of Sport & Exercise Science (so £72 per day). Students are welcome to book for both or one day but RockTape suggest only booking onto the FMT2 (Sat 9th Jan) if you plan to complete/have enrolled onto the first day (FMT Level 1) or you have previously done a taping course. Prior massage/therapy qualifications of students (or lack of) is not an issue – all undergraduate students on previous courses have found it useful. If you are still unsure whether you would be suited to the course see the following document (Seminar_pre_read ), which gives some recommendations regarding further reading prior to attending a RockTape course. However, the practical part of the FMT1 day presumes that people have no previous taping experience so everyone starts in the same boat.

If you are interested then the course information/booking page is now live and can be found by clicking on the link below:


University of Lincoln School of Sport & Exercise Science students: if you put the code lincoln1 into the ‘coupon code’ box when paying for the course online it will reduce the fee by 50%, this will work for booking the one day course and both days. Any issues/questions etc. get in touch with the course provider in the first instance via the below web page or general questions can be emailed to Danny Taylor at dtaylor@lincoln.ac.uk.
