The Massage in Schools Programme is a unique, child-centred massage programme that’s helping children all over the globe. It is the UK’s original child to child massage programme and celebrates its 13th birthday this year.
The mission of the Massage in Schools Programme is to provide high quality and professional training to all teachers and caring adults willing to bring nurturing touch into schools.
The vision of the Massage In Schools Programme is that every child attending school experience positive and nurturing touch every day… everywhere in the world.
