How to hack affection needs.
Have you ever seen pact animals in the animal kingdom. Literally, all of them have in some form or another touch each other, cuddle, and lick each other. These signs of affection are very natural to the human experience as well but because of society, and the social constructs that emit out of that, they don't allow us to show much affection at all. (No, I am not saying we go around licking each other lol) These signs of affection are reserved for very few people in our lives. Why? hmm I could throw numerous psychological journals at you about the necessity for contact with others. (Disclaimer I am not talking sexual contact, that is a completely different subject) In general, we need to be touched 7 times in any given day to feel connected and loved. That is where my practice comes in. I combine elements of physical therapy, (if needed) massage, stretching, and touch. This fulfills the physical, emotional, and psychological needs.
