Dance Massage

What is a Dance Massage

  • Dance Massage combines the soothing, sensory experience of massage with the rhythm and energy of music.
  • Dance Massage is interactive. It is a form of non-verbal communication.
  • It is especially helpful to people with sensory impairments and complex needs.
  • It is very pleasurable to give and receive and it is easy to learn.
  • No fancy equipment needed. Just a sound system, music, massage oil and you.
  • Dance Massage allows people who would not normally be able to access dance, a unique, tactile dance experience.
  • Dance Massage offers a wealth of opportunities to develop sensory integration

Who can benefit from Dance Massage?

My work with Dance Massage has developed with different groups of people over the past few years and continues to evolve.

  • I work with deaf children focusing on listening skills and communication.
  • Children with visual impairments and complex needs can benefit from developing touch tolerance.
  • Dance Massage has also brought children with autism an opportunity for intensive interaction, focusing on communication and building relationships.
  • I have recently been following a new direction bringing an holistic approach to Dance Massage working with babies in mainstream nurseries.

I offer individual sessions with children or adults as well as training courses for groups of adults and children or just adults. The cost of a workshop is £150. I will travel up to an hour from Bristol for one workshop, an hour and a half for two workshops. Please contact me for further details or to request a brochure.
