Story Massage involves the use of simple movements (through clothes), associated with words that help to build up a story. Story massage is a wonderful activity for a parent and child to share with no financial outlay and no resources required. It can help calm or stimulate a child depending upon how it is used and it can also help release Oxytocin, the bonding and feel good hormone.
Reiki is best described as an energy, Reiki raises our own energetic vibrations and helps to heal our physical body itself, we see things differently with more clarity. Reiki is a tool to help self-heal ourselves and can be used on any family member.
Session content:
Story Massage- The strokes and symbols form a structure that enables you to share Story Massage with children of all ages and abilities. Story Massage strokes can easily be adapted for use on the face, hands, feet, legs – wherever is accessible and acceptable. Reiki - a short presentation, followed by an opportunity to experience a session.
You will learn these strokes and symbols and then we will spend time learning some massage stories that are used in school. This will help build your confidence with using story massage in the way that most suits you.
It’s also lots of fun and a way to get to meet other parents. Tea and coffee will be provided.
