Kinesio Taping is the original (elastic thera-peutic taping) method. Our course curriculum reflects over 25 years of educational seminars, symposiums, forums, research and professional sharing among tens of thousands of profession-als. We have developed all aspects of Pediat-rics, Myofascial, Lymph, Sports, Hand, Face, Neurological and Equine taping. The Kinesio Taping Association has been around since 1984 with over 20 books having been published since 1994.  Not only have we always offered a Superior Education but we also have Super Products.  Kinesio Tex Tape is the only elastic therapeu-tic tape that has undergone continuous changes and improvements throughout the years.
