Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought this article, on the importance of touch, was fitting. This article was written for the spa professional, but it discusses the important of massage and touch when going through a health crisis, so I feel it is important for everyone.
If you know someone whose health is compromised, consider purchasing a gift certificate for a massage or pedicure or facial. Those are great "touch" services.
They'll feel like a million bucks. I promise.
