Peer Massage Programme

The peer massage programme is not intended as a therapy, rather it aims to promote the well-being of children in the knowledge that nurturing touch is a basic need and a powerful tool to help children develop healthy, well-balanced opportunities.


Research has shown that positive massage and touch can benefit children by:

·         having the opportunity to learn and experience saying 'yes' and 'no' to touch

·         a feeling of being individually perceived and acknowledged

·         Improved concentration levels

·         Increase in children’s self-esteem and confidence

·         Increase in creativity

·         Promoting relaxation

·         Increase emotional health and well-being

·         Improves children’s motor skills
