Kinesiology Taping Study Days - 2024

Following the successful Study Days in 2023 the Jane Tomlinson Appeal is delighted to offer Kinesiology Taping Study Days for 2024.

We have two dates confirmed so far - Friday 12th and 19th April 2024.  If you would like to register your interest please email  


Kinesio taping is one of the four core focuses of the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and provides much-needed pain relief for cancer patients. This non-drug therapy involves applying an elasticated, self-adhesive tape to the skin to relieve abdominal pressure and discomfort. There are no side effects and can provide an immediate difference in quality of life.

While kinesio taping was originally developed for managing symptoms of musculoskeletal conditions, this treatment was instrumental in providing pain relief for Jane during her illness. Since then, the Jane Tomlinson Appeal have championed its use and funded deeper study at Leeds Beckett University.

The study days for kinesio taping are run by Alison Rose, renowned Team GB physiotherapist; and Jane Jones, who has pioneered the technique with oncology patients. These sessions are frequently booked out and 2024 has been no different.

If you are interested in attending and haven’t been able to secure a place previously, the Jane Tomlinson Appeal will be running further events throughout the year in Leeds. Register your interest today by emailing
