First, you will see CUPPING THERAPY COURSE details followed by TAPING COURSE.  Move Kinetic Tape is first and only company which uses MENTHOL AND NEGATIVE ION INFUSED elastic adhesive tape MADE UP OF HIGH QUALITY SYNTHETIC FIBERS. MKT  is latex-free, hypoallergenic and wearable for days at a time. It is safe for populations from elite athletes, weekend warriors to geriatric and pediatric patients.

Institute of Functional Integrated Cupping Therapy  


• The Functional Integrated Cupping Therapy (FICT) is based on the ancient history and application of old Chinese medicine. FICT reviews the history of vacuum therapies, its application for the treatment of various diseases and ailments.As an adjunct therapy to various medical and non-medical professionals, FICT accelerates patient progress, which makes patients happy.

• Cupping is an extra ordinary technique that has been passed down for thousands of years and continues to be widely used among professionals and lay people across many cultures today. The healing process can be shortened by weeks, even months, by using this method that manually removes the energy blockage in ways that acupuncture needles, massage and other forms of treatment cannot do.

• The use of FICT as a tool for various conditions and ailments includes inflammation, tissue congestion, movement restrictions, scar tissue, chronic pain, and many pre and post-surgical conditions. It is also proven itself to be effective in athletic performance enhancement and medical weight loss programs, including bariatric surgery. A demonstration will illustrate the immediate treatment applications, as well as the invaluable information that the body reveals through the lens of the cup. This presentation will explain the effects of FICT on the body and how these effects can result in dramatic changes in client conditions.

• One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue as well as the elimination of old waste and congestion. Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris, the use of suction is invaluable in releasing soft tissue, scars and restricted fascia.

• Sports professionals are benefitting from the ease of recovery from injury or surgery and an increase in athletic performance, and major league sports teams are utilizing the therapy. Delegates will learn how to examine a client and to apply negative pressure with the use of glass cups. Cupping can alleviate pain, decrease swelling, increase range of motion in joints and speed up the healing process. By creating negative pressure above the surface of the tissues, we allow the surface tissue to be lifted upwards and changing the pressure on underlying tissues, such as nerves, capillaries and fascia.

Menthol induced Move Kinetic Tape ( Taping Facilitation of Injuries Module 1)


• The fibrous connective tissue network within the muscle is continuous and attaches to the tendon of insertion to produce an efficient means for movement. The connective tissue surrounds the whole muscle “Epimysium”, each bundle of fibers “Perimysium” & the individual fiber “Endomysium” which is important in force production independent of fiber arrangement.

• Taping in Facilitation of Injuries Model Module 1 addresses the Architecture of the muscle fiber, basic structural unit of the skeletal muscle & the Sarcomere, which is the smallest contractile unit of the fiber through the connective tissue.

• Kinetic Stimulation of the muscle is followed by immediate development of either Force Production or Force Inhibition maintained by specially derived techniques. Classic experiments in muscle physiology, which demonstrated the relationship between muscle length, and tension is prioritised as Biomechanics and Neurophysiology of the Move Kinetic Tape.

• Histo Chemical reactions in human skeletal muscle involves motor unit recruitment, all fibers within a motor unit are of the same kind with regards to Histo Chemically identified contractile and metabolic properties which is executed either by the Heat or Cold Effects of Menthol.

• Move Kinetic Tape utilizes the continuum of threshold for motor unit Activation/Inhibition helping to account for the efficiency of skeletal muscle movement & locomotion.
