Banyen's Description: 

Human beings are wired for touch. Touch is critical to our physical and mental health. And for centuries, cultures around the globe have employed touch as a powerful force for healing. Yet North America is an increasingly touch-deprived, high-stress culture, and we are paying for it with our wellbeing. This book shows not only what we’re missing, but many ways to “be in touch.”

Science proves that we all have a fundamental need to touch and be touched. Truth be told, we could all use an extra hug, or better yet a soothing foot massage, every now and then. With The Touch Remedy I aim to promote awareness of the important role that simple, daily touch plays in leading happy, healthy lives—and to empower you to take your well-being quite literally into your own hands

With the touch remedies in this book, you really can transform your life and the lives of those around you, for just as stress is contagious, touch can be contagious too, making you and everyone around you happier, healthier, and more connected. I invite you to start your own touch revolution with a compassionate call to action: Inspire and cultivate more touch in the world.

Touch therapist Michelle Ebbin  demonstrates how the ancient—yet only effective in the living present—wisdom of touch can change your life, calm your growls and gripes, and feed your sense of connection.

A fresh, contemporary approach which draws on a unique combination of ancient wisdom and cutting edge research, The Touch Remedy offers proven touch therapy solutions to calm and heal every member of the family, from babies to grandparents to pets. Demystifying time-tested touch therapy techniques such as Acupressure, Reflexology, Cranial Sacral Therapy, among others, Ebbin shares her invaluable insight and provides clear, step-by-step remedies, accompanied by full-colour photos, to relieve a range of physical and emotional stressors, from back pain and headache to anxiety. Her solutions are quick, taking only two-to-three minutes each, and easy, requiring only three steps, and most of the remedies can be done anytime, anywhere, even on the go.

In addition, Ebbin shows how touch therapy offers powerful strategies to improve intimacy in relationships, bond with your children, and improve communication through touch.
