Kinnective Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation Courses
The objective of the Kinnective IASTM courses is to teach Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) techniques. Whether you are a therapist with an injured patient or a trainer who's client needs more range of movement through various areas of their body this technique will enhance your current clinical practice.
Who is this Technique for?
The Kinnective course is available to and intended for appropriately qualified and licensed clinicians, therapists and trainers who have been trained to an appropriate level in the fields of:
- occupational therapy
- massage therapy
- soft tissue therapy
- personal training
- athletic training
- strength and conditioning
Where such practitioners are permitted, under the terms of their licensure, scope of practice and professional / personal liability insurance to administer such treatments and therapies to their client group.
The Training - Background
Developed by 3 very experienced clinicians Kinnective is an interdisciplinary treatment used by a wide range of therapists and trainers. The courses have come about through the collaboration of three practitioners uniquely placed to develop this modality at such an exciting time in the advancement of fascial tissue treatment concepts and techniques.
The principal behind the Kinnective philosophy has been to stay abreast of the current scientific developments underpinning the rationale for IASTM and to continually develop and take the method forward in light of the new science. Through listening to feedback from practitioners and clinicians over the past few years the team at Kinnective came to realise that there were a number of potential barriers to getting trained in IASTM.
- Difficulty in getting onto a course
- Cost of training
- Cost of instruments
- Relevance of courses in light of new scientific findings
This has driven the development of a training system that delivers good value, a versatile instrument at a realistic price and the ability to run courses in several different ways - through in-house training or open CPD with a transparent structure of fixed costs.
As there is such a high practical element to the training each module uses a series of teaching workshops. Within each workshop a log is used to focus the participant on the skill set they are endeavoring to learn. The logs have been developed to help the teaching faculty ensure a high quality of practitioner graduates from the learning pathway. It also helps course participants to fully engage with the training process. It is a recognition of the fact that our learners have invested a lot of time and capital in this process and it helps to ensure that they gain the most they can from their training. At Kinnective we believe this is also necessary to ensure that high standards of training are met and maintained in a rapidly expanding field of clinical practice.
By the end of the course participants should be able to correctly identify and treat soft tissue dysfunctions that are amenable to treatment through the use of this modality.
