WHO WE ARE
Kinesio is a group of three organizations dedicated to the Kinesio Taping® Method: Kinesio University™, Kinesio Taping® Association International (KTAI) and Kinesio® Holding Corporation (KHC). The collaboration of these three companies ensures representation for the Method across all realms of the therapeutic world. Together, we have one vision: ‘Tape the World for Health’.
The Kinesio Taping Method has two very important elements: the education and the tool. Kinesio Taping has never been (and never will be) a one-size fits all philosophy. Knowing how to apply the tape is instrumental in an application’s success, and this is highlighted in the globally recognized education and certification program. Today Kinesio University approved seminars and courses are offered in more than thirty countries across the globe. In 2014 alone more than 1,000 approved programs were hosted, training tens of thousands of practitioners worldwide.
Kinesio Taping® Association International (KTAI)
The KTAI is the certification and membership organization, providing accreditation to those who successfully complete our education programs. Those letters “CKTP” after a name ensure confidence that the practitioner has undergone the necessary training to integrate Kinesio Taping in to their practice. KTAI also promotes scientific research. Dr. Kase invented the Kinesio Taping Method long before science and the rest of the world was ready. 35 years later science is still catching up, but growing evidence is emerging to support what Dr. Kase learned years ago simply by listening to the body and utilizing its natural healing processes.
Put simply, KTAI collaborates with Kinesio University to advance healing through clinical research, high quality education and hands on practice of Kinesio Taping. With thousands of members worldwide, the Kinesio Taping community continues to grow, bringing healing, knowledge and a high level of expertise to patients and clients throughout the world. This community has always been an integral part of the Kinesio Taping strategy, and our knowledgeable professionals have been instrumental in the astounding worldwide growth in Kinesio Taping usage, techniques and methodology.
Kinesio® Holding Corporation (KHC)
No matter how high the level of education or how knowledgeable the user, every treatment modality requires a tool. The only tool specifically designed and tested to meet the unique requirements of the Kinesio Taping Method is Kinesio Tex Tape. Developed and manufactured by Kinesio Holding Corporation, you can trust in our products to achieve consistent results in combination with the Method developed by Dr. Kase.
With more than 35 years of development, research and application, Kinesio stands apart in the field of elastic therapeutic taping. The collaboration of Kinesio University, KTAI and KHC provides an unrivalled combination of technical, research and educational service to practitioners, patients and users around the globe. This in conjunction with our history provides the foundation for our current and future innovations, and we continue to work together towards our vision: Tape the World for Health.
