The Healing Power of Touch
Did you know physical touch has the power to heal by transferring vital energy between human beings?
Dr. Harvey L Gochros explained, “We develop a form of emotional scurvy that we call by different terms: depression, stress, anxiety, aggression and midlife crisis. Lack of touch is just as detrimental to our health as a lack of Vitamin C and just as easy to remedy.”
Human beings have a universal need for touch.
In one horrendous study babies actually died from the simple lack of touch.
When intimacy is lacking in a marriage, serious consequences can also be found. Lack of physical touch often leads our minds down a lonely path of feeling isolated, sad, depressed and unaccepted.
To be clear intimacy doesn’t always imply sexual contact. There are many ways to start filling your “touch bucket” right now.
1- Give lots of hugs
2- Hold hands
3- Stroke hair or skin
4- Snuggle or hold each other in the cradling position
5- Give massages
What holds you back from touching more?
I know it will take some effort. It might even feel a bit awkward when you start being more liberal with your touches.
Just do it!
Your health and relationship just might depend on it.
