Massage in Schools Instructor


The Massage In Schools Programme (MISP) is a child-to-child massage programme. It is aimed at children from 4 – 12 years old. It is always given and received with the child's permission. It is only ever given by the children to each other, using simple but very effective massage moves, with child friendly names. The routine is usually given seated and on fully clothed bodies, on the back, hands, arms and hands. It is a simple procedure that can be done daily in 10-15 minutes, once the children have learned the moves.

The children always ask permission from each other before they start the massage and say thank you to their partner at the end.

Research shows that it has a very beneficial effect and as well as teaching the children how to respect each other, it also helps by reducing stress levels, improving confidence and concentration, as well as counteracting aggression and bullying. It fits very well into the Curriculum of Excellence.

MISP can be carried out in many different settings such as primary schools, nurseries, after school groups, community groups etc.
