Throughout history we have used our hands to impart comfort and healing to one another. The human touch is warmth, reassurance that we are not alone, and it helps give our being a sense of worth. Our sense of touch is registered by our skin which is the largest, most sensitive organ of the body. As a developing embryo in the mother’s womb, the skin arises from the same cell layer as our nervous system. Able to give and receive vast amounts of information, it could be seen as the external portion of the nervous system.
The intent that we impart while giving a massage makes all the difference to the effect. When we lay our hands on another being with love and compassion many subtle changes occur. Gentle holding and touching given with great tenderness, causes transformations both physically and psychologically.
