Massage in Families

Please see Massage in Schools framework.

Massage in families is delivered as a 5-week course for 2 hours per week. Parents are taken on a journey for the first hour of the session, learning about the brain and physiology, along with strategies for promoting positive mental health.

The children then join the parents for the last hour, whereby they learn the routine together, giving a 20-minute massage to each-other and then swapping over to return the massage. Children and parents are then invited to work as a team to action plan, considering how this can be practiced and used at home.
