Touch, or to be touched by someone is one of the most forgotten essentials in our lives today. We have become so touch deprived, that we move about much like human zombies. We are so afraid of someone invading our personal space, that we never really let anyone inside. We maintain this emotional distance for many reasons. Sometimes it's because we're afraid of what people think or how they may or may not feel. We don't hug children for fear of being sued. We don't touch casually for fear that it may be misread as some sexual advance. We have created this system to protect, but it has only served to isolate. If we don't interact as we were intended, I fear this society will fail to exist and only end in anarchy.
Don't misunderstand me, I am not saying that our society is doomed, but we need to return to a place of trust, love and kindness with each other and together one by one we will begin to change this mistrustful world.
Massage therapy is one way to get the touch therapy we so sorely lack in our lives. That physical rejuvenation we receive through massage is vital to our mental, physical and emotional well-being. Babies thrive so well in their formative years because of touch. How are we now so different? Our needs haven't changed, only our perception. We need to view touch for what it is and that's physical nurturing.
If you feel continually disconnected from the world around you, you probably are. Begin to give back to your world and refresh your spirit continually by receiving some form of touch each day. A hug or a handshake will do wonders for your health. Regular massage will improve your health as well as help you view the world in a little better light.
