Story Massage for Babies
Sensory Story Massage Workshops
Natasha is planning a Summertime Special Session with themed stories, songs and massage stories related sunshine, seaside, holidays, beaches, water, sea animals, and activities we do during summer time. “On August Bank holiday 2017 we will be celebrating 50 years of the Leeds West Indian Carnival, so I may make this my August theme,” says Natasha, “September is all about new beginnings, October is Halloween/autumn, November is bonfire and the festival of lights and December is Christmas/snowy weather. Story Massage works so perfectly.”

More about Story Massage
Story Massage combines the benefits of positive touch with the creativity of storytelling. Ten simple massage strokes form the basis of the Story Massage programme. These strokes have a child friendly name, such as The Circle or The Sprinkle, and an easy to recognise symbol making it accessible for all. It is a fully inclusive activity, no clothing is removed and no oil is used. You can find out more about Story Massage from our book: Once upon a touch…story massage for children
