Story Massage

Story Massage is a programme developed by Mary Atkinson and Sandra Hooper.  It has been widely and successfully used with children of all ages in a variety of settings across the globe.

Story Massage combines the joy of story telling with the benefits of positive touch.  It can be shared as peer massage between children in the classroom or between adult and child in the home.  Story Massage is carried out in whatever position the child feels comfortable; be it seated, standing or lying down and children remain fully clothed.

If you would like to experience Story Massage sessions in your school, group or family please get in touch.

I am very excited to have been awarded the Story Massage Best Practice Award in 2022. It’s a real honour and a privilege to be able to continue to use this programme to assist with the wellbeing of children.
