Kinesiology Taping & Oncology Study Day

The Jane Tomlinson Appeal are holding a study day on kinesiology and taping in oncology on 12th November at St Gemma's Hospice in Leeds

The session will be led by renowned Team GB physiotherapist Alison Rose and experienced oncology physiotherapist Jane Jones and will focus on kinesiology taping and its potential benefits to people living with cancer. It will cover theory and clinical reasoning as well as practical application techniques.

The course is scheduled to take place in at St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds on Tuesday 12th November from 9am to 4pm. A light lunch will be provided. Participants will be provided with an instructional manual to take away, along with some samples of the kinesiology tape.

The one-day session is being provided free of charge to appropriate practitioners working in the charity sector or the NHS, through the legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson CBE, who benefited from the taping during the last months of her life. Jane reported a significant improvement in her quality of life following the taping, and it was one of her final wishes that others would be able to benefit from the treatment.

As well as offering the practical sessions, the Appeal has funded a PhD research project, into the benefits of the technique, at Leeds Beckett University. Please provide details of your role and organisation and how your attendance at the study day would benefit people living with cancer.

Places are limited, so please do not hesitate to register your interest. Priority will be given to NHS and charity sector participants, but space permitting, the sessions will be open to those working in the private sector at a charge of £150 per delegate (to help cover costs).
