Please note, sessions on the 15th August will not be taking place, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please book in advance in order to confirm your place on the 29th August sessions and to guarantee that the session will run.

Take part in some valuable relation time as a family, exploring various relaxation techniques such as peace breathes, rainbow stretches, relax and calm exercises, star card affirmations and relaxation journeys. Learn how to use self and paired massage, using fun strokes like the bear walk, stroking the dog, bunny hops and the slide (clothed massage of head, shoulders, back and hands).

Each session has a suggested age range (with activities designed for children of that age) but if you would like to bring multiple children to the session we can be flexible with this. For more information, please email or call (0161) 223 3211.
