CMC in Nelson

Yvonne Harvey from Nelson graduated from the “CMC for Professionals course” in  January 2013  
She introduced the Children Massaging Children programme into Room 3, Hira School, Nelson this term, where the teacher encourages and understands the benefits of holistic development for children.
These children were aged 6-8years and some of the advantages they learned were relaxation, empathy and compassion towards each other. They look forward to this successful programme each week.
A great time was had by all.
The children are now implementing their massage skills on their parents and siblings.
