When stress piles upon stress without the relief of an equal portion of relaxation, the body begins to shut out all sensory intake and the learning process is completely blocked.

Massage in Schools Programme (MISP) Instructor Training & Satellite Courses

The MISP instructor training and satellite courses are offered by MISP International Trainers who have undergone extensive training with the Massage In Schools Association International.  All contents are internationally designed and approved and shared by all MISP Trainers around the world.

Participants attending the training and courses will be able to learn how to bring nurturing touch into the lives of children ages 2 to 12 through the use of the unique MISP Massage Routine. In addition, they will also learn in relation to the MISP; child development, scientific knowledge, as well as the basis for bringing the idea of touch and movement to achieve more effective and engaged learning for children.

"Balance of theory, activities and massage... never a bored moment!"

Training Participant

The MISP Instructor Training is part of teachers' training curriculums and continuing development courses for teachers in several countries around the world.

Teachers and educators who have taken the trainings and courses have found that they gain new ideas and understanding about the nature of children and were more equipped in supporting their overall wellbeing. They also appreciated the various teaching methodologies of visualisation and kinaesthetic learning that they could apply within the school curriculum.

MISP Satellite Programmes

The international association have introduced in addition to the MISP Instructor Training, two satellite programme for MISP Instructors, parents and educators, or anyone interested to deepen their knowledge about child development and how to use the MISP better in their lives and work 

Mini - MISP Instructor Programme (1 day)
The Mini-MISP is a shortened and adapted version of the MISP for children ages 2 and 3 and families. 
2 and 3 year olds are at a very special stage of development and failing to understand their nature at this stage may lead to frustrations or actions that counter their proper development! 
Course participants will learn about developmentally appropriate touch for children of 2 and 3 years old.
Touch & Move to Learn! (1 day)
The MISP, besides the basic massage routine, incorporates touch and movement activities for children to help them use their whole body for learning and development. We also invite parents, educators and teachers to incorporate touch and movement for learning with all schools subjects.
This workshop was created to foster the practice of touch and movement within the daily education of children. Participants will learn the foundations for this idea as well as be introduced to several age appropriate activities to foster children’s development, coordination, integration and self-regulation.
It answers requests from teachers and parents who wish to understand why children learn better when they touch or move. 
Pre-requisites!
This course is only available for IAIM & MISP Certified Instructors.
If you would like to be certified to teach the MISP from 2 to 12 years in one sitting, watch out for our Combined Mini-MISP & MISP Instructor Training!
Who should take this course?
MISP Instructors, Parents, Teachers, Allied Educators, Children Therapists and anyone who wants to know how touch and movement helps children's well-being!
There are no pre-requisites for this course.
