Healing Touch for Children Book

Looking for natural ways to help your child cope with unsettling times? My book Healing Touch for Children offers easy to follow ways of providing support and comfort. It is supported by a YouTube channel with demonstrations of the techniques. The paperback edition costs £4.99 and the Kindle version is £2.99, both exclusively from Amazon.

About the book

I’ve written Healing Touch for Children for parents and grandparents wishing to share the benefits of nurturing touch with their children and grandchildren, but the book is also enjoyed by therapists. There are plenty of self-help tips too. It’s practical and easy to use – with ideas for introducing simple massage, reflexology and acupressure techniques.

The book is written to help children, but the simple routines are valuable for people of all ages. Research by the Touch Research Institute in Miami shows that short, simple touch therapy sessions can help reduce stress, increase concentration and boost energy levels for everyone. So check out the book to discover some of the ways that you can make touch therapy a loving and caring part of your family life.

Positive Touch for Children YouTube Channel

It is always so helpful to actually see the different techniques in action, so I’ve created a You Tube Channel to support the Healing Touch for Children book. You can see me demonstrating basic massage, reflexology and acupressure techniques on children. Click here to access the demonstrations. Positive Touch for Children with Mary Atkinson.

About Mary Atkinson

Mary is an award-winning author and holistic therapist with her own training school. She believes passionately in the power of touch for children of all ages and abilities – and works to share ideas for developing positive touch activities in a fun and engaging way.

The photos below were taken when Mary was working with refugee families in Dunkirk and with children affected by the tsunami in Japan. On both occasions, nurturing, positive touch brought real benefits of reducing anxiety and bringing comfort to the children.
