The NMT Institute has created a treatment concept of decompression taping called “NeuroMuscular Taping” widely known in medicine and rehabilitation. The NMTConcept is used in physical rehabilitation, in sports medicine, in nursing, in speech therapy and language pathologies, in all aspects of health care. It is a therapeutic tool in the prevention of and in the active treatment of many conditions requiring increased self-healing capacity.

“NMT Know-How” and “Intellectual Property – NMT“ began in 2000 and consolidated during 2003 together with the creation of both the NMT concept and the NMT Institute. The Institute plays a key role in the management of precise training and in the development of specific protocols for pathologies and conditions requiring treatment. Since its creation, the NMT Institute is a benchmark for specific innovative training programs and for its involvement in numerous volunteer initiatives in various parts of the world. Through correct training the NMT Know-How is passed on to health care professionals while in collaboration with tertiary education institutions the NMT intellectual property can be shared to all.

The other is NeuroMuscular Taping methodology, a non-stretched tape applied over the skin in an extended position resulting in a decompressive taping definition. NeuroMuscular taping refers to a specific decompressive taping application techniques which originated in the early 2000’s in Italy. This NMT taping system is characterised by resulting skin wrinkling, skin folds or skin undulations. Elastic NMT decompression taping application creates various types of skin, muscle, joint, sensory, vascular and tactile stimulation under study over the last decade. Hence 2 types of taping application resulting in 2 different and opposing methodologies.

The NMT Team is available in many countries


The aim of the NMT Institute is to create training programs in the many countries requesting assistance. Trainings started in 2003 and many programs were in collaboration with specific projects, for example Phantom pain and amputation program in Sarajevo in 2010 and in Mekelle in Ethiopia in 2016 and 2018 or paediatric club foot rehabilitation program in Congo in 2015 – View Volunteer NMT Training Programs. Currently NMT branches cover South, Central and North America, Europe, Asia, Australasia and Africa. Many of the NMT trained professionals can be viewed through the REGISTER.

Register of Professionals Trained in NMT

The NeuroMuscular Taping (NMT) REGISTER is a complete list of professionals trained in official NMT courses in the many countries offering certified training. NeuroMuscular Taping® is a registered trademark linked to codified procedures which are authorised through a training and certification process. Only professionals trained in official courses, given by qualified teachers, can be certified. This process guarantees their results and their high level of therapeutic competency achieved through correctly applying NeuroMuscular Taping methodology.

Are all taping techniques the same?

At times, there is a misconception that Kinesiology taping, Kinesio taping, and NeuroMuscular taping are synonymous, reflecting a limited grasp of the underlying methods and techniques. However, what sets these various taping approaches apart?

The NeuroMuscular Taping technique introduces a distinctive concept centered around decompression and dilation methodology, distinguishing it from other forms of kinesiology taping and bandaging. Originating in Italy in 2003, and created by David Blow, this novel taping approach, known as NMT, enhances the process of clinical reasoning. Its foundation lies in specific decompression taping applications, which form the core of this innovative rehabilitation method. Precise application of this technique proves effective in alleviating pain, addressing sports-related injuries, reducing muscle tension, and concurrently enhancing athletic performance, rehabilitation, as well as outcomes in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.
