Story Massage


Mary Atkinson and Sandra Hooper will share their inspiring work with Story Massage for children of all ages and abilities across the world.
Story Massage involves the use of simple movements (through clothes), associated with words that help to build up a story. Story massage can be shared as a peer or parent/ therapist to child activity. It is currently being used and developed worldwide in a variety of settings including home, mother and toddler groups, school, family centres, hospices and special schools.
During this fun and interactive evening, there will a chance to share a simple Story Massage with each other, ask questions and find out more about resources for using Story Massage at home or work.
Mary Atkinson and Sandra Hooper are co-founders of the Story Massage project and co-authors of Once upon a touch…story massage for children. More information about Story Massage on the website: www.storymassage.co.uk    fht-logo_color
