TINY STORY MASSAGE
Our NEW TINY STORY MASSAGE sessions offer something a little more interactive and fun for those little crawlers out there.
What to expect:
These new classes offer parents, or other care givers a simple, fun, fully inclusive and effective activity to enjoy with their babies and toddlers, which combines positive touch with story, song, rhyme and creative play.
We focus on the magic of 12 simple strokes, which form the foundation of story massage, and then use these to express our chosen stories or songs each week. Each stroke has a name and symbol, to ensure the sessions are fully accessible for adults and little ones alike, and together, we explore the different ways these movements can be used.
Stories and nursery rhymes, with simple massage strokes applied, offer the perfect opportunity for creative fun and interaction with your little one, and is a wonderful session to do as a follow on from Developmental Baby Massage.
Tiny Story Massage is done fully clothed and without oil and each week we have a different theme to explore. So you won’t ever get bored!
