Rainbow Kids Touch Therapy And Relaxation Instructor Course

Skip to course dates 2018 | Skip to course dates 2019

A registered Learning Destination with The Children’s University, this is an extremely special course to share, researched and written with absolute passion and dedication.

Continued and ongoing mentoring sessions after your training are obligatory so that this trademarked ,recognised and accredited therapy is kept within the criteria of the University.

It also keeps us all growing with the therapy so that it can reach as many children as possible in the most effective and correct way.

Following the enormous success and demand for my Rainbow Kids Touch Therapy Clubs ranging from ages 3 – 18 , ( it started out as one small group of primary age children and has now evolved to teenagers and young adults and children’s homes as well as work with young offenders ) I am very happy to offer this one day CPD/Instructor course for those wishing to train with me and set up similar schemes in their own areas.


Once you have shared this course with me you are also warmly welcome to take part in future course dates to refresh and add to your skills set as this work is always growing and expanding . I so want it to reach as many children and young adults as possible whether they are neurotypical or differently abled.

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 which are not handled. They also have bigger brains and 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), and 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,  physiology  and graphology as well as the sharing of massage strokes that can be self-administered as a way to manage anxiety, be more productive and focused, become more self aware and to nurture their emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.

I collect everyone from a central meeting place at 9am , and after teas , coffees and introductions, the course starts promptly at 9.30 am and finishes at 5pm.  Certificates and lunch are provided along with a full manual including ” lesson ” plans, resources and further information.

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

Cost £150 per person.
