Positive touch is vital for our wellbeing. Whether we are a baby, a mother, a child, a middle aged man or an elderly woman, we all need touch to thrive.
Of all of our senses – touch is, in a way, the greatest. Our skin is actually the largest organ in our body, yet it is often taken for granted. The benefits of touch, although now well researched, are largely ignored.
This is partly because our base need for touch is, ironically, intangible: when we need a drink we feel thirsty, when we need food we feel hungry…but if the need for touch is not satisfied the consequences of this are less obvious and so they are overlooked.
