K-Taping Pro VancouverCity: Vancouver
Price: $495.00 Regular rate $295.00 Student rate
The K-Taping Pro course covers the basic functions and effects of K-taping. Applications learned in the two-day course are for muscle, ligament, functional corrections, and fascia corrections. Lymphatic correction techniques are also introduced. Participants will receive instruction on the application of combination techniques for multiple conditions including: impingement syndrome, whiplash, low back pain, finger contusion, wrist stabilization, Iliotibial Band Syndrome, Patello-Femoral Syndrome, knee arthritis, Achilles tendonitis, ankle weakness, plantar fasciitis, scar tape application, lymphatic dysfunction, as well as the indications and usage of Cross Taping.
Who should attend?
Physicians, physiotherapists, physiotherapy assistants, chiropractors, athletic therapists, kinesiologists, exercise physiologists, strength and conditioning specialists, massage therapists, and rehabilitation nurses.
In the K-taping® Pro course students are taught Four Application Techniques:
Muscle Techniques: Functional disorders in the muscles often cause an imbalance between agonists and antagonists. Muscle taping techniques are used to correct these imbalances. They allow the muscle to return to its normal function and adaptations can be made to the loading capacity and the movement patterns again.
Ligament Techniques: The ligament technique is used for injury and overuse of tendons and ligaments. It relieves pressure and pain, and improves loading capacity, resulting in quicker healing.
Corrective Techniques: Are divided into functional correction and fascia correction. The functional corrective technique is used for the correction of abnormal bony positions, such as the correction of an abnormal patella position. Functional correction requires maximal stretching of the tape before application. Fascia correction is used for adhesions within muscle fascia, resulting in a loosening of fascia and pain reduction.
Lymphatic Techniques: The Lymphatic Correction techniques are used when lymphflow is disrupted. These techniques lift the skin. This increases the space between skin and subcutaneous tissue and lymph fluid is able to flow easier out of the interstitial space into the lymphatic circulation.
Includes the official workbook by the International K-Taping Academy, practice tape supplies for the course, a certificate, and a membership to the International K-Taping Forum.
Attire: Bring your own scissors and wear proper attire for taping of your body (i.e. shorts, t-shirt).
Schedule and Location: Sent via e-mail approximately 3 weeks in advance of the course date.
Duration: 2 days, Sat-Sun 0830-1730. Two 15 minute breaks and a one hour lunch. Lunch not provided. Some course venues have restrictions about our capacity to offer coffee and snacks during breaks in the classrooms (we recommend that you bring some or your favourite snacks with you.

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization ACity: Vancouver (and vicinity)
Contact PersonSomatic Senses Education
The “Prague School” of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine was established by key neurologists/physiatrists, all of whom were giants in the 20th Century rehabilitation movement: Professors’ Vaclav Vojta, Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda, and Frantisek Vele.
Based upon the groundbreaking neurodevelopmental and rehabilitation principles described by these mentors, Pavel Kolar has organized the next generation of clinical protocols that are designed to restore and stabilize locomotor function. This new rehabilitation approach is called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).
The nervous system establishes programs that control human posture, movement and gait. This ‘motor control’ is largely established during the first critical years of life. Therefore, the “Prague School” emphasizes neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order to assess and restore dysfunction of the locomotor system and associated syndromes.
- Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood.
- Demonstrate understanding of new terminology such as functional joint centration, punctum fixum, punctum mobile and the integrated stabilizing system of the spine.
- Demonstrate a basic understanding of the principles of reflex locomotion: locomotor patterns - stepping and support function and stimulation zones.
- Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.
- Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests.
- Perform the basic techniques for reflex locomotion, i.e. reflex turning 1 & 2, and reflex creeping: initial positioning and anticipated movements, key zones and their vectors.
- Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions used in reflex locomotion.
- Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies.
- Provide basic clinical management explanation for clinicians to better integrate the DNS approach in their regular practice, including patient education.

The Sports Pelvis & Hip - Recurrent Groin & Hamstring Problems – Find the Driver & Treat the Whole Person with ConnectTherapy™ with Dr. LJ LeeCity: North Vancouver
Price: $1,325 + 5% GST
Contact PersonJanine Tasaka - 604.986.2777
Dates: June 6-9, 2018
Low back pain and pelvic girdle pain are common problems experienced by patients seen in clinical practice, from postpartum women to elite athletes. So too are lower extremity injuries such as groin pain, “osteitis pubis”, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), adductor tendinopathy, and recurrent hamstring strains and posterior thigh pain. A challenge for therapists and patients is that often these problems are recurrent and chronic, and research evidence to indicate what the most effective treatment protocol for these injuries is still lacking.
Effective rehabilitation of any problem facing patients requires consideration of how loads are transferred through the entire body during tasks that have meaning for the patient. An important consideration is that the location of pain does not always correlate to the underlying cause of the problem. That is, dysfunction in other areas of the body, whether painful or not, may be the true underlying cause, or “driver” of the patient’s problem. The ConnectTherapy™ model provides a total body assessment and treatment framework to connect dysfunctional areas to the painful problem and determine the most effective treatment approach. This course teaches how to determine when the pelvis or the hip are the true driver for the patient’s problem, or a victim from a driver elsewhere.
On this 4-day course you will learn the key observational and hands-on skills needed to determine if the pelvis and hip are optimally or non-optimally transferring loads during whole body functional tasks related to daily activities and sport in Meaningful Task Analysis (MTA) (Lee LJ 2008). You will learn pelvis and hip “correction” techniques to use during MTA and the clinical algorithm needed to analyze the findings & determine whether the pelvis or hip is the true “primary driver” for the patient’s problem, or not. Knowing how to “rule in” or “rule out” the pelvis & hip as drivers gives the therapist confidence in designing & implementing treatment that produces results. Techniques to effectively treat pelvis and hip drivers will then be covered, including neuromuscular release techniques and the ConnectTherapy Exercise Prescription Framework to take the rehabilitation program from the acute stage to restoring full return to sport and activity.
LJ will also share her ideas on how the thorax and pelvis interact, looking at the connections between the thorax, pelvis, and hips, and discussing the key clinical findings that direct the therapist to look outside the pelvis-hip complex to find the primary driver for the patient’s problem. Thoracic ring practical techniques are taught in courses on The Thoracic Ring Approach.
The purpose of this 4-day evidence-based course is to enhance your hands-on and clinical reasoning skills to determine the role of pelvis and hip dysfunction in a range of common recurrent problems and to more effectively pelvis and hip drivers.

The Sports Thorax - Connect The Whole Body & Optimize Performance with ConnectTherapy™ & the Thoracic Ring Approach™City: Vancouver
Price: $1400 + 5% GST
Contact PersonJanine Tasaka - 604.986.2777
Course dates: Sept 19-22, 2018
The thorax forms the largest region of the spine and trunk and is essential for respiration while ensuring effective transfer of loads through the kinetic chain for optimal whole body function and performance. Trunk rotation and rotational control are essential for performance in many functional and sports activities. While much “core stability” has focused around the lumbar spine and pelvis, the thorax is the centre of trunk rotation, and all of the abdominal muscles are innervated from the thorax. A dysfunctional thorax can drive asymmetrical abdominal function, making it difficult to achieve symmetry and balanced rotational control no matter what the cues or training activity.
Based on her clinical ideas and research work on the thorax over the past 15 years, Dr. LJ Lee has proposed multiple mechanisms by which a dysfunctional thorax can be the “Primary Driver” for pain and problems anywhere from your head to your toes – including pelvic girdle pain, groin pain / hip impingement, incontinence, disc injuries, lower extremity overuse syndromes such as Achilles tendinopathy, head and neck pain, and shoulder girdle dysfunction. Thus, a patient with a dysfunctional thorax can present with a wide variety of symptoms and functional problems.
On this 4-day course, you will learn the manual skills and clinical reasoning framework of the Thoracic Ring Approach and ConnectTherapy to determine when the thorax is or is not the primary driver for pain or reduced performance during whole body movements. These skills provide the base to examine the thoracic rings across a wide variety of meaningful tasks. Specific thoracic ring treatment techniques developed by LJ will be practiced, along with specific exercise training and program design for optimal neuromuscular control and loading of the thoracic rings. This 4-day version of the course allows more time for hands-on skill practice and more in-depth application of LJ’s new phases of treatment and exercise prescription to progress to high load function and activities requiring control with speed.
