The power and importance of touch can not be overstated.

Touch is by far the most interesting and necessary of the ‘five senses.’ The sense of touch develops before all other senses in embryos and is the main way in which infants learn about their environment and bond with other people. This sense never turns off or takes a break, and it continues to work long aver the other senses fail in old age. Throughout life, people use their sense of touch to learn, protect themselves from harm, relate to others, and experience pleasure. Interestingly, positive touch from others is necessary for an individual’s healthy development. Despite the presence of all other life requirements, without this positive touch, infants fail to thrive. With positive touch, babies and children will grow emotionally as well as cognitively.
