In school as part of health week the pupils have been able to experience different methods of massage and relaxation techniques. Here are copies of the resources we have been using in school. Also included is some paperwork detailing the benefits of relaxation and massage for children as well as where it fits within Curriculum for Excellence.
All pupils responded really well to this. For massage we are using coconut oil, available from all supermarkets but a bargain from B & M at just £1.49 for a large tub! It is solid in the tub but very quickly melts with the heat from your hands – and it smells divine!
