Kinesio Tex Tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, the tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for decreased inflammation.
The letters “CKTP” stand for Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner®.
The Kinesio Taping® Association International takes this designation very seriously. In order to begin the CKTP certification process, your practitioner has taken a minimum of 24 class hours of KT1, KT2 and KT3 seminars, and may have received additional advanced training in a particular area of practice.
Certification itself requires the passing of a written examination and practical skills demonstration.
