Massage in Schools

The two-day interactive instructor’s training course or equivalent online course will give you valuable tools to help children to learn. The MISP uses the body’s natural relaxation and cognitive processes to help children become engaged in the learning process.

You will receive a detailed manual and resources to support their work.  The trainer provides on-going support. 


Story Massage

The Story Massage Programme combines the benefits of positive touch with the fun and creativity of words – whether as story, rhyme  or song.  Story Massage sessions can be shared as a child to child or parent to child activity or with adults. It is popular in a variety of settings including schools, special schools, care homes, after-school clubs, family centres, hospices and of course, the family home. 

Baby Massage Training

Baby massage is all about communication. In a baby massage class, parents are enabled to observe and understand their infants cues. The class provides space and time when both parent and baby can themselves experience a relaxed and secure environment. This is a  4 day professional baby massage instructor training course available to anyone interested in supporting families, including healthcare professionals, child support workers, complementary therapists and parents.

Baby and Beyond

Infant massage provides early positive interaction through bonding, fun, trust and relief whilst incorporating nurturing touch, massage and reflexology. It is very gentle strokes on a baby’s skin with its main aim to support attachment and bonding. It also incorporates some gentle movements as well.

This training course is designed to provide practitioners with the knowledge and teaching ability to safely and effectively deliver infant/baby massage sessions and courses to parents and babies within a variety of individual and group settings.
