One part of human survival is a trait that we may undermine, but can be seen just as importantly as other essentials in human life. This instinct is identified as touch. The sense of physically feeling one another is highly ranked next to other necessities such as food and shelter. Touch is an irreplaceable connection made between humans that generates comfort and security.
Those who are most susceptible to feel the loss of a connection regarding touch are infants and elders. Infants depend on their parents as they are most vulnerable in life and rely on touch for a sense of security. Elders are also prone to feel this as they enter old age and may lose their life partners. They want to depend on friends and family to lift them up through the use of affection and close proximity. This is also why physical touch is incorporated towards the greeting of one another such as hugging and shaking hands.
Touch Is More Important Than We All Recognize
Touch is a bond that simulates a sense of calmness and tranquility which is why if it is left absent in one’s life long enough, can create loneliness and depression. So I bet now you can guess why this has a little something to do with massages!
As we have reiterated before, touch is an essential part of human life…it is needed for any and all relationships to grow in our lifetime and also used as a remedy for healing. This is what massaging incorporates: facilitating that kind of survival instinct in us by savoring each touch we experience and make. The massage therapist does exactly that as they stimulate each and every nerve ending on our body. This is why we feel our absolute best by the end of the service!
