Navigating grief and trauma with practical tools and resources
Why consider adding touch?
Touch is a basic human need that can lessen or change when a loved one dies. Studies have shown that touch-deprived infants have a variety of health issues stemming from their lack of tactile attention, which is why many hospital programs enlist volunteers to simply hold babies. While on the grief and trauma healing journey, the touch factor can be increased by the help of friends, family, pets, licensed body workers, and certified massage therapists.
