Rocktape Kinesiology Training Courses

Rocktape’s taping protocol is quickly becoming the standard for kinesiology taping in the medical industry.  The Rocktape courses are Australia’s most popular kinesiology tape courses.  In 2014 we conducted in excess of 60 full and half day courses, attended by more than 1,500 people.  Why the interest?

Unlike other methods, Rocktape’s taping protocol is based on an ‘open-source’ philosophy; we don’t believe there’s only one right way to tape.  We welcome applications and techniques that others have developed.  This community based approach to taping integrates concepts from all other methods and provides a framework for the practitioner to determine the best approach.

We have now developed several different options to provide education about kinesiology taping.

  1. The full day courses remain our principal method of introducing the concept of kinesiology taping to the majority of practitioners, as well as teaching them the concepts of “Power Taping”, utilising the benefits of kinesiology taping to tape the muscles associated with a particular activity, linking the muscles of the appropriate kinetic chain, ie lower back, hamstring and calf muscles that make up the posterior chain.  Investment – $290, or $190 for under graduate students.
  2. Our half day courses are attractive to busy practitioners, and those that are just keen to learn the basic principles of kinesiology taping.  These courses focus on the more commonly used Rocktape applications within the three categories of regional taping, oedema taping and postural control.  Investment – $150, or $95 for under graduate students.
  3. Rocktape 2 – a full day course for practitioners wanting to learn more kinesiology taping techniques, and have a more in depth look at the various Power Taping applications.  This course is designed for those who have already completed one of our standard courses, or who are regular users of kinesiology tape.  Investment – $290, or $190 for under graduate students.
  4. New in 2015 is Rocktape Equine – we offer both a full day course covering kinesiology taping applications for both the human and horse, and a half day course focusing on how to assist performance and recovery, during and post competition.  Investment – $390.

All courses have a significant practical component which allows an opportunity for the attendees to attempt taping numerous applications, which is important given it is quite different to rigid tape techniques.  This ensures they feel confident enough to start using Rocktape with their clients when next in the clinic, gym or sports change rooms, and they have many application ideas to use.

About CPE Made Easy

I have a strong passion and desire to improve my knowledge to increase the care I can deliver to my clients, hence this is how CPE Made Easy was born.

Buds to Blossoms Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program

Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program with AIDS orphans in Vietnam

Spend three weeks providing paediatric massage, infant massage and other forms of bodywork to AIDS orphans in Ho Chi Minh City.

Massage is of particular benefit to these children, because of its immune system- strengthening effect. It also promotes their general well-being by providing relief from pain and anxiety and helping meet their emotional and developmental needs through one-on-one nurturing attention and touch.

During the program, volunteers get a tremendous amount of hands-on experience of providing massage to children. Although the program's focus is primarily on caring for AIDS orphans, volunteers also spend some of their time offering massage to orphans with disabilities.

CPE points : 30
