Message from the MISA-USA President

On behalf of the MISA-USA board, I would like to thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will find the information here insightful. We are dedicated to the MISP vision that every child experiences positive and nurturing touch every day, everywhere in the world. To help us reach this goal, we rely on donations from generous people like you. We are a 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization so any amount you give is tax deductible. Just like your donations, we believe that the effects of massage are immediate, yet they last a lifetime.
~ Anita Prendergast

Welcome to MISA-USA, the US website for the Massage in Schools Association (MISA). MISA is a worldwide organization dedicated to supporting instructors of the Massage in Schools Program (MISP) in spreading our message throughout the world.

The program and association began in the UK in 2000. Our pioneer work here in the U.S. began in 2011 and we are growing rapidly. Our goal is to have the MISP in all 50 states. Our instructors come from a range of professions, all of whom are dedicated to sharing the benefits of the MISP with children.
The MISP advocates a new educational and family approach on massage to encourage rapport and healthy, positive interactions between children-to-children and parent-to-child. It is not a treatment or therapy. Some of the basic foundations of human connections are created through physical touch, giving us a sense of happiness and warmth as well as safety and comfort.
