Peaceful Touch®

massage for children. Everywhere they began to introduce the program, the children themselves assimilated the basic massage strokes, and children as well as adults gave and received Peaceful Touch®.

Liddle Kidz founder, Tina Allen, has played an important role in bringing Peaceful Touch® to the children and families of the North America and feels passionate about introducing the many benefits of nurturing touch through the use of specially designed curriculum.



More than a century of scientific research and observation gives evidence to what many know by instinct: that touch is essential to human growth and development. Yet circumstance and custom too often raise obstacles to the day-to-day practice of healthy touch in children's lives.

One of the top priorities of Peaceful Touch® is to bring the work to children living in communities that face the obstacles of poverty and violence.


Peaceful Touch® in Sweden

When Axelson Institute began Peaceful Touch® in Stockholm in the early 1990s, it focused on teachers and aides learning basic Swedish massage techniques in order to massage children. But everywhere the Peaceul Touch program was used, the children themselves assimilated the basic massage strokes, and children as well as adults gave and received Peaceful Touch®.

Kidz in Contact™ |  A Healthy Touch Initiative for Children

Kidz in Contact™ is a child-to-child, peer based, healthy touch program which utilizes respect, healthy boundaries and permission at the core of our initiative.

No child must ever receive healthy touch if they do not wish to, and in turn some may request it during different parts of their day.

This initiative allows for the exploration of what healthy touch is, and how to utilize it appropriately while exploring the benefits for children.
