Human touch is crucial to our well-being. From childhood development to emotional and overall wellness, human touch ignites the release of oxytocin, a bonding or love hormone that gives a sense of belonging, enhanced sociability, stability, and trust.
Childhood trauma leads to brains wired for fear and all trauma whether it is developmental or PTSD from accidents, assaults or other traumatic experiences lives both in the mind and the body.
“It’s about becoming safe to feel what you feel. When you’re traumatized, you’re afraid of what you’re feeling, because your feeling is always terror, or fear or helplessness. I think these body-based techniques help you to feel what’s happening in your body, and to breathe into it and not run away from it. So, you learn to befriend your experience”
– Bessell Van Der Kolk
