Touch is one of the greatest natural healing methods. Touch soothes, nourishes, releases, relaxes, and comforts. We nourish our wholeness through regular and frequent touch. It is a most powerful medicine!
Massage and bodywork stimulate blood and lymph flow, warms the tissue, improves flexibility, eases pain and engages the body’s parasympathetic nervous system resulting in a relaxation response. But the power of touch reaches far beyond just the physical and penetrates into the depth of our being. Touch can result in the production of endorphins, chemical substances released in the nervous system, which relieves pain and results in an incredible sense of well-being.
