Evaluation of the Massage in Schools Programme in One Primary School
Marsh, Lesley J.
Educational Psychology in Practice, v27 n2 p133-142 2011
This article discusses the potential benefits of the Massage in Schools Programme (MISP), a programme originating in Scandinavia, which has been introduced into schools in the United Kingdom (UK) since 2001. Meeting four out of five outcomes of the Every Child Matters agenda, the review of the literature aims to separate anecdotal and media evidence from the small number of published studies. A description of one six-month study in a primary school in the UK follows, showing the (teacher rated) benefits to the participating children. An author's update concludes which comments on further developments both in the local authority and within the Massage in Schools Association (MISA). (Contains 7 tables.)
