Massage in Schools

The Massage in Schools Programme (MISP) is an international movement which works with the schools, teachers and children to offer a high quality, inclusive, peer-to-peer massage programme for 4-12 year olds that can be used creatively within all curriculum areas.

MISP supports positive mental health and wellbeing, PSHE, SMSC, SRE, British Values and Prevent.


How it works

  • A fun, daily, 10-15 minute adult-led peer massage routine
  • Massage is given only by children, to other children
  • Massage is given over clothe and only to the back, neck, head, arms and hands
  • Received and given only with the child’s permission
  • MISP is an inclusive programme for children aged 4-12
  • MISP encourages learning through positive touch games and activities and by creating massage stories
  • MISP is suitable as a classroom activity or in other child-centered environments, like after school clubs
