Story Massage

Good Morning

A lot of interest in Story massage so here is a ‘How to Guide’ and some stories you can try at home.  (click to make them bigger) You can do story massage to any story.  There will be a live story massage on facebook at 2pm – search Story massage and it will take you right to their page.

What is Story Massage?

  • Story Massage combines the benefits of positive touch with the creativity of words – whether as story, rhyme or song. Ten simple massage strokes form the basis of the programme, each with its own name and symbol to make it fully accessible for all ages.
  • Can be shared as a child to child or adult/parent to child activity
  • All strokes can be used on any area that is accessible and appropriate for the person so it can be applied to the shoulders, back, arms, head, face, legs, hands and feet, all areas which are non-intrusive. No oil is used so clothes do not need to be removed. The movements are safe and adaptable to the individual.  All strokes and story massage activities are given with permission.

Please watch the ‘How to guide’ below before if you have not done story massage before.


repeat the movement at least 2 times for each stroke.

Here you can access the written version of the massage strokes.
