In a year of little or no touch it has been good to see a number of articles, like the one below, discussing the importance of human contact.

It allows us to see how we feel emotionally. It gives us the support to have the space to sense our emotions acutely.
It gives us an idea of how we relate to out lives – the people around us – the situation we are in.
There is a security in touch that creates space for change or options to appear. Ways that we can move forward, internally and or on our lives.
Shiatsu is a naturally supportive and nurturing form of touch. It holds the clients well, tailored to that particular person on that particular day. Connecting deeply on a physical an emotional level.
So lucky that my job involves so much touch.
