About the MISP
The Massage in Schools Programme is a child-to-child peer massage program for children aged 4-12. The massage follows a simple routine which is done over the clothes on the head, arms, back and neck. Partners exchange roles so that each child experiences giving and receiving massage.
Respect is the foundation of the program and children always have to ask permission before giving their partner a massage. It is always the choice of the child whether or not they want to receive a massage on any given day.
