The Power of Touch (& Thai Massage)
This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. The power of touch is quintessential to the human experience. The ability for compassionate touch to positively affect people is probably the #1 reason I love teaching and giving massage. The ability of a simple helping hand to soothe, to help relax and remind us that we matter and we are part of a something bigger than ourselves is often forgotten when we think of all the benefits that come from giving massage. It is also one of the reasons why those on the receiving end of a Thai Massage find it so hard to put how great they feel and why that is so hard to put into words.
The idea for this teaching came after watching the video for the song Same Love by Maclemore & Ryan Lewis, featuring Mary Lambert. The last few moments of the video are a powerful reminder of how essential touch is to anyone’s overall health and well being.
Check out both videos and then leave your comments and stories below about how compassionate touch impacts you and your loved ones. I’ll be in there answering questions as well!
