The Massage in Schools Program
The MISP consists of a series of 15 strokes and movements that engage the children to use their imagination. The strokes and movements are performed over the childrens clothing. The Weather Massage is a fun, educational game that the children will also learn as well as the MISP. Once implemented by Idibidi Kids, the routine takes approximately 10 minutes. The children are encouraged to perform MISP daily to achieve the maximum benefits and to help the children remember the strokes.
Idibidi Kids will provide each classroom or centre cartoon drawings that depict each of the strokes, for example, the 'butterfly' stroke shows a picture of a butterfly; the 'heart' strokes show a picture of a love heart, and so on.
The program requires 4 sessions (approx. 20 minutes per session) plus a 5th session to implement the program including the Weather Massage and for a revision of the 15 strokes in total. Cost is per session for one class or for more than one class please enquire about the daily rate.
