Learn how to share Story Massage with Children
Story Massage is easy to learn and involves the use of simple movements (children are clothed), linked to words that help tell a story. Story Massage has a flexible approach as it can be shared as a child to child or parent to child activity.
At present it is used worldwide in a variety of settings including home, school, after-school clubs, family centres, hospices and special schools.
