What is Story Massage?


Story Massage introduces a fun and interactive way of encouraging the benefits of nurturing touch through storytelling and simple massage strokes. This is a lovely activity to do with your child and is a fun way for families to share time together. This can be enjoyed by children of all ages and abilities and can be tailored to suit the needs of the child.


The Benefits of Story Massage Include:


  • increasing self confidence, self-esteem and self awareness
  • an opportunity for children to experience dedicated 'calming time'
  • promotes relaxation
  • can be tailored to meet the individual needs of a child
