Welcome to the Touch is Great Blog. We’re on a mission to eradicate touch deprivation in America. Here we will discuss how touch hunger is affecting our society and ways to reverse this debilitation disease. Let’s start with my definition of touch deprivation; Suffering from poor, loveless or inadequate physical contact. People experiencing touch hunger range from infants to the elderly and my have symptoms such as depression, anxiety, violent behavior or isolation.
Next, I will say that I am a touch expert. I am not a scientist or doctor so all of my comments are coming from more than seven years of hands-on experience as a massage therapist and working with more than 3000 people during my career. If you are a health care professional, I invite you to share your expertise with our readers. If you think you or someone you love may be touch deprived, drop us a line and maybe we can assist you or refer you to someone who can.
Finally, I invite you to view our short video that gives you a visual of what we want to accomplish in this national campaign called Touch Is Great! You have the option to comment on it, rate it, share it or add it to your videos, website etc. Our goal is to reach 1 million people with the simple Touch Is Great message by October 1, 2007 and we appreciate your support in making this happen.
Peace and Blessings,
Versandra Kennebrew M.T.,
