Conferences are a great way of showcasing the Story Massage Programme as well as gaining inspiration and ideas from others. We hold our own annual Story Massage Conference and we are regularly invited to give presentations and demonstrations at local and national conferences to share the benefits of positive touch for all ages and abilities.
