​The Story Massage Programme

The Story Massage Programme was founded in 2012 by Mary Atkinson and Sandra Hooper - who share a passion for introducing the positive, nurturing touch for people of all ages and abilities. The programme is based on ten simple strokes, each with a name and symbol making it accessible for all. It is fun, interactive and fully inclusive. The programme is now used widely in schools, special schools, nurseries, care homes, hospices, libraries, baby and toddler massage classes, and, of course, the family home.
