The Gift of Personal Touch

Seniors may miss out on regular human touch such as a warm hug, rocking a grandchild to sleep, or walking hand in hand with a loved one due to their health issues and limited interaction. Therapeutic touch not only improves aging health conditions such as stiff muscles, limited mobility and chronic pain, its social aspect also benefits elders as human touch enables the release of endorphins and strengthens a sense of well-being.
