Child 2 Child Peer Massage Practitioner Training

Child 2 Child Peer Massage Practitioner Training

26th August Newcastle Upon Tyne 09.00-16.00

Peer Massage is a very short and simple initiative that can be used by children
in school, in clubs or at home to support their self-management.

It is an easy combination of classic massage strokes that are put together to
make a short routine, which if done daily, has many benefits, such as the
capacity to reduce anxiety and stress. This daily practice builds up emotional
awareness and social cohesion.

Children are asked to choose whether they wish to take part in the session on
a daily basis and their choice is acknowledged and respected.
The peer massage is a process of teaching children those skills and
competences needed in life.
Absolute Energy offers training in peer massage as an approach to supporting
relaxation and promoting learning. Currently training is given by Lynn Munro.

By the end of the training you will:

• Have understanding of the benefits of peer massage and how it can
develop positive relationships amongst children helping to promote an
emotionally literate school.

• Be confident in organizing a variety of peer massage routines and
positive touch games

• Teach children back and hand massage strokes that will form part of a
daily routine peer massage

• Understand the links between peer massage and the Every Child
Matters agenda; Healthy Schools initiatives; Personal Social and Health
Education and Citizenship curriculum and proactive positive mental health
