We have received some nice updates about the Massage in Schools Programme being implemented in Hanoi, Vietnam. In her travels throughout Asia, MISP instructor Celia Ortega joined fellow instructor Sophie McLeish for one of her weekly Story Massage sessions at Blossom House girls home in Hanoi.

The girls love forming a massage train, going through all the simple and relaxing strokes, before getting into pairs to do a story. This week they did one about the famous Vietnamese legend Lac Long Quan and Au Co – the dragon and the fairy from whom some believe the Vietnamese ancestors descended from. The stories are translated into both English and Vietnamese. Next week they want to do one about ‘The Little Match Girl!’

The girls were very excited to meet someone else from a different country and all were extremely relaxed afterwards, even the social worker who was assisting!
