Study days

What are study days?

The Appeal stages Kinesio Taping study days to share knowledge of the technique with professionals treating people with cancer.

The one-day sessions – devised by renowned Team GB physiotherapist Alison Rose in conjunction with other experienced practitioners – focus on Kinesio Taping and its potential benefits for people living with cancer.

The sessions cover theory and clinical reasoning as well as practical application techniques.

The timetable for the one-day session is broadly: 

Introduction to Kinesio tape 

Background theories

Practical demonstrations of: 

- Taping for drainage of the liver

- Taping for the spleen

- Taping for lymphatic drainage of the abdomen

- Taping for diaphragmatic expansion

- Taping for expansion of the thoracic cage

- Taping for breast cancer and lymphoedema

- Taping for low back pain

- Taping for neck pain

Kidney mobilisation

Participants are provided with an instructional manual and notes to take away, along with some samples of kinesiology tape.

The sessions are free of charge to physiotherapists, nurses or other practitioners working in the NHS or the third sector, such as community care teams or hospices.

The days take place several times a year at locations across the UK.
