The Official UK Kinesio® Taping Method
With over 25 years of research, development and clinical use, the Kinesio® Taping Method is recognised as an innovative and highly effective modality for treating sport injuries and aiding lymphoedema reduction. Endorsed and developed by Dr Kenzo Kase, Kinesio® Tex Tape is the only recommended elastic adhesive tape for the Kinesio® Taping Method. As the official Kinesio® representative for the UK & Ireland, we are dedicated to providing practitioners with the most up-to-date research and authorised training for Kinesio® Taping available through the International Kinesio Taping Association.
Why Take an Approved Kinesio Taping Course?
In order for practitioners to receive the best training and to be certified by the Kinesio Taping Association, courses should only be booked through a Kinesio authorised training provider or via the Kinesio UK website.
By taking an authorised Kinesio Taping Course, practitioners receive the most up-to-date instruction on the Kinesio Taping Method. The Kinesio Taping Method is at the forefront of fascial, lymphatic, and muscle research and benefits from continuous input from research bodies throughout the world.
The advancements in the Kinesio Taping method make it imperative that attendees receive training from an official Kinesio Instructor. Our highly qualified, certified and experienced instructors have gone through extensive training programs to provide practitioners with the best possible teaching on our courses.
The Kinesio Taping Association is an international organisation and regulates the teaching of Kinesio courses worldwide. This ensures that each course meets the highest training standards and that trained practitioners receive certification which is recognised worldwide.
Each of our courses follows a specific curriculum set by the Kinesio Taping Association. This curriculum has been developed through 30 years of taping experience and is endorsed by the founder of the Kinesio Taping Method, Dr. Kenzo Kase. The curriculum gives practitioners a standardised number of hours with the instructor to ensure they get the comprehensive training needed to achieve the best results.
Once practitioners have completed the necessary number of hours, they can attain certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner status. Please note that only the Kinesio Taping Association can certify Kinesio Practitioners – another reason to ensure that you attend an approved Kinesio course.

Greenhouse Therapies of CHESTER run frequent courses at all levels.
There are 3 Main Course Levels – KT1, KT2 and KT3 plus Instructor Training.
The Kinesio Taping Association advise that courses should be taken as a KT1 and 2 (two day) course, followed by a KT3 course at a later date. This is to ensure that practitioners get enough practice with Kinesio Tape prior to completing the advanced KT3 course.
