“When we do not have the use of the tactile ‘touch’ it is imperative that we express our ‘love’ verbally to one another,and especially at this time. We must use the word ‘love’ when relating, interacting verbally with one another. This will elevate feelings of well-being, joy, and happiness.

Touch as in the ‘human touch’ as in social bonding, heartening, facilitates connecting with people as we are able to empathize and understand feelings.

It is reported, the human brain can remember several touch sensations at the same time and consciously retrieve ‘the touch’ if concentration is focused upon these touches. Also reported, a new touch does not erase the memory of a previous touch from working memory.”

Helen Keller wrote, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”
