Absolute Energy are the only independent Instructor in the North East offering a full and comprehensive programme of peer massage. This is an extremely specialist area that only highly experienced practitioners are capable of delivering making Absolute Energy an ideal provider.The Massage in Schools Programme was created by two inspirational women: Mia Elmsater & Sylvie Hetu

We are also pleased to announce that we are the first in the North East to Train for the Child2Child Peer Massage Programme. A new and exciting programme developed by Jean Barlow, Teacher Consultant for Rochdale’s Behaviour Management and Development Team. She has developed a sustainable model of peer massage that fits with the school routines and transitions, and is embedded in the school ethos.

The vision of the Massage in Schools Programme is that every child attending school experiences positive and nurturing touch every day... everywhere in the world.

Peer Massage in School:

  • Is for children aged 4-12 years
  • Is part of the PSHCE curriculum
  • Promotes emotional resilience
  • Helps children to learn more about themselves
    and each other
  • Is based upon shared respect
  • Is delivered through an active learning model
  • Empowers children by enabling them to rehearse
    Positive Language, Language of Choice
  • Helps build self esteem
  • It improves communications
  • Reduces the propensity for aggressive behavior
  • Improves social cohesion
  • MISP teaches through rights and responsibility and is embedded in the school ethos

Massage is always fully clothed and restricted to arms, shoulders, upper back and neck. Teachers do not massage children, the massage sequences are made into games and stories e.g. drawing the weather map, making a party pizza or building a garden, on the back.
