Who can take the Story Massage Refresher training?
“I really loved all the updates in this refresher course. The information will help practitioners continue to use and understand the Story Massage Programme approach. I found the section on writing massage stories with the prompts very helpful. I know all Story Massage practitioners will enjoy this refresher course and find it useful and informative.”
“I found the downloadable programme very easy to work through, especially with the embedded links to the videos of the programme in action and also follow-along examples. Watching Mary speak to camera and role play with Emmanuel was really good for my confidence. It was nice to have examples of ‘what to say’ and ‘what to do’. This refresher has been very worthwhile, and I’m now feeling much more confident.”
How much does it cost?
We offer a discount of £5 per course for bookings of 5 or more participants.
How long does it take?
“I absolutely love the Story Massage Programme. The course reminded me of all the many benefits and ways it can be adapted which is helpful when spreading the word. I spent a very inspiring time watching the videos and reading articles on the blog, something that I hadn’t regularly accessed but plan to do so from now on.”
“It’s a lovely course. It’s a simple and comprehensive way to refresh previously learnt knowledge. I found it very helpful to watch the videos and see the programme in action in so many different settings. If I could recommend one course for those working with PMLD students, it would be the Story Massage Programme.”
“I enjoyed going through the manual and videos including the demonstration of the strokes. It was genuinely good as a refresher to update skills and knowledge and have ideas to tweak my practice following the training. Everything is very clear and easy to follow. I am excited about trying new skills, including hand massage, with my students. And the course has also reminded me of the importance of taking time to gain consent and saying or signing ‘thank you’ to the person being massaged at the end of the massage.”
