Story Massage in primary schools is a popular and beneficial peer massage activity. At one primary school in Hackney, East London, teachers have found that introducing Story Massage can help create a calm atmosphere and encourage concentration and engagement in activities. Story Massage in primary schools is an inclusive, curriculum-based learning activity.
Positive and Respectful Touch
This Story Massage was created on a training day in London earlier this year and has become a firm favourite in the classroom. It uses all of the ten Story Massage strokes that form the basis of our training and resources. This massage story is a helpful way of sharing the concept of Story Massage as a positive and respectful activity for children.
Time for Story Massage
It’s time for Story Massage. (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)
