What is Story Massage?
Story massage is a fun and interactive way of enjoying positive touch through storytelling and simple massage strokes.
I use Story Massage to teach, direct and supervise parents/carers how to draw and tell Stories on their children’s backs. The model helps enhance parent/carer and child bonding and attachment through respectful and caring touch. Story Massage sessions are also available in schools, either with small groups or the whole class.
Benefits of the Story Massage include;
- Improved calmness and concentration.
- Increased self-confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem.
- Improved social skills.
- Increased engagement in activities.
- Better communication.
- Building respect and positive relationships.
