Massage in Schools Programme online!
MISP Instructors are running fun, engaging and creative massage sessions online for children and families to access easily. These are run as a block of 4 sessions and are for children aged 2 – 12 years old along with their parents/carers. MISA Scotland are funding some of these sessions so they will be free for families. See the first pilot study of these online sessions here.

Great result from the first parent/ child funded pilot!
The massage pilot took place from Friday the 24th of May until Friday the 19th June in a primary school in South Ayrshire. The children participating were aged between 6 and 8 years old. None of the children who participated had ever engaged in peer massage, or massage with their parents before.
Eight families participated in the pilot with either a mother or grandmother attending for each family. For one family both a grandmother and mother attended all sessions, and for another a father attended in the last session, so he too could be involved in the massage routine at home.
