Are all taping methods 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, midwife and speech therapy.


NeuroMuscular Taping Institute has been organising volunteer projects in developing countries for many years, providing a high level of specialisation in the rehabilitation area, using simple, effective and low-cost methods. The realisation of these projects is only possible thanks to a collaboration of local organizations, which already operate in the area.

Each project includes an initial training course of 4 days, followed by tutoring and clinical verification and training by the NMT Institute team. Duration of each project varies from 10 to 20 days. All organisational and logistical expenses are generally covered by the Institute or by an institutional sponsor. Travel expenses instead are covered by the volunteers: air ticket, visa, possible mandatory vaccinations. Other costs are covered by the NMT Institute.

Volunteers are required to have a spirit of adaptation, ability to work in groups, willingness to pass on their valuable treatment KNOW-HOW and enthusiasm to participate in the project.

Putting yourself on the line is not easy for anyone. We believe in “lifelong learning” and consider opportunities for civil and social engagement and acknowledgment of new cultures offered through international volunteering can be an effective tool to promote and stimulate your “active global citizenship”.

When you choose to take part in a volunteer project, you need to be sure to start with the right predisposition of mind, be able to accept challenges that you may meet along the way, unexpected difficulties, you must be able to get involved leaving your own comfort zone and leaving home any kind of prejudice while remaining open to welcome new knowledge.

To participate, simply send the completed application form (request at together with your CV. If you are chosen, you will receive confirmation (by email) and we will start the organizational procedures.

Why choose to participate in NMT Volunteer Projects? Because it is a training experience from both a professional and personal point of view or because you receive more than you give or because it allows you to know different realities enriching, empowering, and challenging your personal mind sense enhancing your inspiration and quality of life.
