Welcome to KTA Russia’s Kinesio Taping Symposium!
We are proud to invite you to Russia’s first Kinesio Taping Symposium, Sept. 5-6, 2015 in Moscow.
The Symposium will be held at the I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University. «First Med» is the oldest medical school in Russia, and traces its roots to the medical faculty of Moscow Imperial University, which was founded in 1758. Now it is the largest in Russia, with 14 000 thousand undergraduate, and more than 15 000 postgraduate students. The University is located in the historic center of Moscow, not far from the Kremlin and other famous Russian historical buildings and monuments.
The Symposium will be brought to you by Kinesio Taping Association (International) and it’s official affiliate in the Russian Federation, KTA Russia.
Nine years ago, KTA Russia and Kinesio’s Russian distributor Eaglesports, were the first to bring the Kinesio Taping Method to the Russian Federation. Since that time, KTA Russia has been training sports and medical professionals to effectively use the Kinesio Taping method in their own practices. We have conducted well over 100 workshops and trained more than 1,000 professionals; It is time to bring the Russian Taping community together to share both our international and local knowledge and experiences!
It is the perfect way to follow up on last year’s close cooperation with the Russian and International Olympic Committees during 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. At the Sochi Games, Kinesio Taping was the Official Elastic Therapeutic Tape, and Kinesio Taping founder Dr. Kenzo Kase led a team of trained CKTPs in both the Coastal, and Mountain Cluster clinics. Every day of the Olympics, Dr. Kase helped elite athletes prepare for competition. Kinesio played a prominent role in helping Russian (and other) hockey players, figure skaters, speed skaters and skiers achieve fantastic results at the Games. While in Sochi, The IOC asked Dr. Kase to run a series of lectures and demonstrations to the medical population at the Olympics. KTA Russia and Dr. Kase continue to work with the ROC today, and we hope to see their representatives at the Symposium in September.
KTA Russia is proud to welcome Dr. Kenzo Kase back to Russia, where he will Chair the Symposium.
