In order to contribute to our students emotional health and wellbeing, Les Voies offers a weekly hand massage session by a qualified member of staff, with the consent of parents/carers. 

A recent study by the 'Massage in Schools Programme, (2012)' outlined that the mental, physical and emotional benefits for children are:

  • Improved calmness and concentration  

  • Increased self-confidence and self esteem

  • Improved social skills with a greater number of relationships/friendships with peers & adults

  • Happier and more relaxed children

  • A reduction in aggressive behaviour and bullying

  • A more positive attitude and greater engagement with learning

  • Improved ability to work in groups and independently

  • Greater creativity and problem solving

  • Increased awareness of the body and signs of stress and anxiety

It's a relaxing time when you can

forget about your worries, or talk about

them or just have quiet time.
