Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia ~
“Touch is without a doubt one of the most, if not the most powerful means of communication we have available to us as human beings” says James Smith, counselor at Willow Tree Christian Counseling in Northern Ireland. “We may speak, express ourselves through words, tone and the volume of our voice, or body language, however nothing comes close to touch.”
Touch can make people feel more optimistic and positive and less cynical and suspicious. A positive, trusting attitude towards others can reduce tension in our daily lives and improve our relationships. Emotionally, touching helps make people feel safer and more secure with each other.
