Story massage is a really simple way to bond with your child and help them heal some of their issues through metaphor.
Storytelling has earned its place as the most important tradition humans possess. We associate with a story, imagination is roused and connections are made with ah ha moments in the land of possibility. Stories can deliver messages to the sub-conscious mind where there is no resistance.
Metaphor builds connections, allowing learning to take place and effecting change. If a picture paints 1000 words, metaphor paints 1000 pictures.
The power of story telling and metaphor cannot be underestimated. This combined with touch creates an incredibly powerful language that reaches deep into the unconscious of the recipient and begins to instal new neural pathways. Story massage can be used very effectively to help your child embrace their life story.
Try some story massage over the Easter holidays. it is relaxing to give and receive and everyone benefits from a massive release of the nurturing hormone oxytocin. It's a gret way to spend relationship building time with your children.
"‘Very insightful. Allowed me to see that some of my children’s behaviour is them seeking sensory stuff. Lots of very practical things to do to help my children develop. That there is something that will help no matter what age. Thank you very much for sharing some of your person examples – it was very helpful.’"
