80% of communication isn’t speech. At Rainbow Kids everyone grows to their full potential and everyone is included.

We also learn through stories and guided journeys  about the world around us and other cultures, as well as nature and our beautiful world ,encouraging broader minds and awareness.

This is then taken back into the home and the classroom! Therapeutic touch boosts not just our immunity but floods us with Serotonin the “happy hormone”, Dopamine the “pleasure hormone” (which has proven links to the higher/executive brain functions) as well as Oxytocin, the hormone of wellbeing and nurture, a huge antidote to stress and anxiety. Melatonin, which regulates sleep patterns and mood, is gently stimulated as well as endorphins. All the therapeutic activities are shared in a safe, creative , inclusive and “held” space.

Rainbow Kids currently offers Tuesdays 4.30pm – 5.30pm or Wednesdays from 5.30pm – 6.30 pm

  • All ages and abilities welcome whether neurotypical or with a different/special ability.
  • There is also a Pre-School group on Tuesday mornings from 10am – 11am where I share  some really special techniques, gentle yoga and breath work with sounds and poses, soothing and deeply beneficial baby and toddler massage techniques, story and song massage, sound work with singing bowls and drums as well as games for fine and gross motor skills . It is a lovely, inclusive and relaxed atmosphere of nurture and relaxation, for the parents and carers too.

You’re never too young and you’re never too old to join us in the chalet at the end of the rainbow! £5.00 per child per session. Private one to one, parent and child, family sessions or small, closed , private Rainbow Kids sessions are also available on request.

Rainbow Kids is also fully portable and can come to your school, nursery,academy, special school, children’s home, hospital or hospice. For more information please call Giuliana on 07791 977786 or alternatively send an email to info@therapiesforspecialneeds.co.uk.

“One hundred years from now,it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in,or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” ( Forest.E.Witcraft )

Training

Following the enormous success and demand for my Rainbow Kids Touch Therapy and Relaxation Sessions (it started out as one small group of primary age children and evolved to pre-schoolers, teenagers and young adults , special schools,mainstream schools , children’s homes as well as work with young offenders), I am very happy to announce that I offer one day CPD/Instructor courses for those wishing to train with me and set up this therapy ,under my umbrella and continued mentoring, in their own areas .

Nurturing touch is such a scientifically proven part of our wellbeing and growth on all levels: emotionally, mentally, physically, academically and socially. Tests conducted since the 1950’s have proven that animals that are touched and handled are physically healthier than animals that are not handled. They also have bigger brains, far greater social skills and healthier emotional bonding.

I teach researched studies and facts which prove how unlike IQ, emotional and social intelligence can be learned and grown and indeed we have specific areas of the brain that directly link in with this. For example, with reading and processing faces, empathy, social cognition, controlling behaviour, multi awareness, self awareness – the list is huge! Your heads will be bursting with knowledge and scientific facts in the most blissful and relaxed way – the best way to learn!

This CMA accredited course can be applied to nurseries, pre schools,  primary and secondary schools, children’s homes  and special schools to name just a few. It would be wonderful in hospitals and hospices too, the possibilities are endless!

I teach massage techniques including creative and expressive massage, how to use massage to describe stories, songs, events and feelings (it is a fact that 80% of communication is actually non verbal), mindfulness, meditation, relaxation techniques, guided journeys, beautiful story cards and story telling with a whole magical difference for younger children. Although the children are learning science along with the “magic” and there is a structure, it is very driven by the children and their voices, encouraging their confidence, their emotional intelligence (EQ) their social intelligence/skills (SQ) as well as their academic productivity (IQ), unleashing their creative imaginations; all wonderful and beneficial qualities which will add to their performance within the classroom.

For older “children” and young adults, I teach massage for wellbeing, balancing, communication and expression, along with mindfulness, meditation, “older” guided journeys, breathwork and sound work. I also share a range of massage strokes that can be self-administered as a way to manage anxiety, be more productive and focused, become more self aware, self regulating, self- managed and to nurture their emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.

I collect everyone from a central meeting place at 9.00am and, after teas, coffees and introductions, the course starts promptly at 9.30am and finishes at 5.00pm. Certificates and lunch are provided along with a full manual including “lesson” plans, resources and further information.

Previous massage experience is helpful but certainly not essential. Come and share a completely gorgeous day and leave with your heads bursting with all the new techniques and knowledge but also blissfully relaxed having learned so much about yourselves too in a very relaxed and friendly environment.

The cost is £150.00 per person.
