Mary Teaching for Home Page
Welcome to my website. This is my opportunity to share my passion for the benefits of all holistic therapies for adults and children. I hope that you will find something here to encourage and inspire you to further your own professional and personal development.


Holistic Therapy Courses and Therapies

My specialist area is running CPD courses and workshops for beginners and therapists. Many of my courses, including my Indian Head Massage Diploma and Story Massage  are accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

Mary Atkinson in JapanPublications and Talks

As a trained journalist, I also enjoy writing articles and books on holistic therapies. I am a regular speaker at conferences about a variety of holistic topics. In 2012, I was given the honour of being Cocoro UK representative, working with a Japanese charity providing aromatherapy and story massage for children affected by the tsunami. I was recently presented with the prestigious FHT Excellence in Leadership Award for my work with the charity.

Story Massage

I am co-founder of the Story Massage project which combines the therapeutic benefits of positive touch with the creativity of storytelling. It is very popular in schools, special schools, hospices and, of course, the family home.

Mary’s Indian Head Massage courses are excellent. Her expertise, enthusiasm and passion for Holistic Therapies are infectious. Highly recommended as a caring, supportive tutor in Indian Head Massage and Story Massage. Annie Aulds, Sussex
