The Story Massage Programme in primary schools is a popular and beneficial peer massage activity. At one primary school in Hackney, East London, teachers have found that introducing the Story Massage programme can help create a calm atmosphere and encourage concentration and engagement in activities. It is an inclusive, curriculum-based learning activity.
Positive and Respectful Touch
This massage story is a firm favourite in the classroom. It uses all of the ten Story Massage strokes that form the basis of our training and resources. It is a helpful way of sharing the concept of the Story Massage Programme as a positive and respectful activity for children.
Time for a Massage Story
It’s time for a massage story. (The Calm)
It’s a time for us to come together, (The Circle)
Remembering to be kind (The Squeeze)
And to listen to each other (The Calm)
We’ll use our hands (The Walk)
To share our stories (The Fan)
To sing our sings (The Sprinkle)
And to learn new things. (The Wave)
We’ll work together (The Bounce)
And use our imaginations (The Claw)
To have lots of fun. (The Drum)
