Story Massage

 

A fabulous follow on from baby massage which can be used on children of all ages.  It has also been found to be highly beneficial for peer massage in educational settings (has been incorporated into the Massage in Schools Programme),  hospices, for children with additional needs and for those suffering from dementia.

This is a workshop for parents, carers and teachers to learn how to put basic massage strokes to stories and poetry.  A simple, fun and interactive way of sharing nurturing touch with children.

These are just some of the many benefits of Story Massage:

  • Relaxes and calms
  • Improves alertness and concentration
  • Reduces aggressive and hyperactive behaviour
  • Promotes ‘feel good’ hormones that boosts general well-being and is wonderful for the anxious child
  • Improves social skills
  • Increases self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-esteem
