    I believe human touch is the next best thing after, the eyes, you can judge someone by how they look at people, and you can judge them also by touch, as touch is the gateway to sincerity !

I am a REFLEXOLOGIST and yesterday I offered three one hour foot rubs to clients, two with various health ailments (diabetes/high blood pressure/ prostate gland issues) and one with EMOTIONAL ISSUES re: a close relative who is terminal, etc…all clients felt and observed SUCH IMMENSE RELAXATION as WELL AS INCREASED STRENGTH AND ENERGY, with the acceptance that DETOXING was going on in all of their body cells as well.

    You are so right on in your article about the human touch. I was so lucky to have parents who knew how to hug and hand-hold. And, now after 45 years of marriage and 45 plus years of being with my special guy who also knows about hugs, caresses and hand-holding, well… it just makes you feel that everything will be okay.

    Thank you so much for sharing your expertise’ with me. I do agree with everything that you have said. Isn’t it wonderful to be reminded again and again. Thank you very much. Irma.

    I just wanted to say that I agree with you totally about everything that you said about the human touch but sometimes a person wants to hear the words not just go through the motions. And sometimes a person gets tired of making love because too much is too much. Too much of anything is no good. I mean it feels like he just wants me around for sex and that gets tiresome, and I know in my heart that he does not respect me so I have no other choice but to go my own way and find someone who does. Enough is Enough!

    there are some people who dislike being touched – physically at least and I find any touch on my back painful – how to the people who dislike being touched find these things?

  13. Karen Engh

    I liked this article. I think it is very important to touch as well. I feel like I have a hard time expressing love and end up expressing negative emotions as a defense.

    Thank you!

  14. Clindy Carpenter

    I agree with everything you said. I also know that hugs are contagious. Every one need a hug and a pleasant word said to them. Can’t get enough I Love You either.
