What is Massage InSchool Program ( MISP ) Instructor's Training?

Your experienced MISP Trainer is Anne Crease, a Massage in Schools Association (MISA).

“Well balanced, good range of different activities – which we all appreciated. It was a really excellent course. Thank you so much.”

PSHE Adviser

MISP Instructor’s training courses are available live online from March 2021

Please request details, Role of the MISP Instructor; instructors are adults from education, health, and children’s organisations who care about children's physical, social, and emotional development.

Instructors introduce the peer massage routine directly to the children, supported by the class teacher or adult in charge. They can teach all staff how to use positive touch in the curriculum, using visualisation and kinaesthetic learning. The programme is fun for the children and staff!

All adults working with children require an enhanced DBS certificate (Disclosure and Barring Service) or equivalent.
