The Story Massage Programme I teach offers a fun and interactive way of combining the creativity of storytelling with the benefits of positive touch.
I offer parent-infant classes and workshops, with siblings welcome.
I will teach you a set of strokes that we will then put to nursery rhymes and short stories.
Once you know the strokes you can get creative and write your own stories, poems or songs with or for your child (or partner) and put the massage strokes to them.
Story massage is perfect for all ages and all abilities.
I offer a four week course with weekly classes. I also offer seasonal workshops, each with a different theme for you and your baby/ child to engage with and enjoy.
