Peaceful Touch ®: A Healthy Touch Curriculum for Children
Susan is a certified instructor in the two primary methods for teaching touch to children: Peaceful Touch ®, and the Massage in Schools Program. In these programs, adults do not massage children directly, but rather teach children to massage one another. Instruction incorporates games and stories and invokes the imagination. The common goals include:
Peaceful Touch ® comes to us from Sweden, where massage instruction has been provided to preschool and school age children for more than a decade. In Sweden, 10,000 teachers have been so trained, and they in turn have taught 500,000 school children of all ages the art of Peaceful Touch ®.
The lengthy experience of the Swedes with Peaceful Touch ® has allowed numerous studies to be completed on the effects of this work, thus documenting it’s profound benefit to children. These benefits include:
Peaceful Touch ® instruction is appropriate for children ages 3 through 12. Susan teaches this program in schools and to children’s groups around the San Francisco Bay Area. Please contact her for information about bringing this program to your school or group.
