Put your kids to sleep with Story Massage

 

 

 

It's cold, it's dark and getting your kids to sleep earlier isn't easy.

Story massage can help with sleep. Research shows that kids who were massaged before bedtime slept better - they fell asleep faster and their sleep patterns improved compared to the control group who was read a bedtime story but didn't receive massage. Read more why and how to try it tonight with your kids below!

Why story massage helps sleep?

1. Nurturing touch reduces stress hormones in the body (for both the giver and the receiver).

 

2. Story massage, nurturing touch, nurturing story and your mindful presence will create a safe space for the child to fall asleep. Feeling your hand on their back helps the child feel so safe that they can close their eyes and drift to sleep. It also helps the adult to stop after a busy day.

 

3. The safe space can inspire the child to share anything worrying them and help them fall asleep faster after getting the load off their backs.
