This session explores the sense of touch and how it has the power to calm and reconnect human beings. Touch helps the body release a hormone called oxytocin that can lower stress, improve learning, and increase growth and social interaction. Participants will learn simple massage strategies that can be used with their children. Participants will 1) compare outcomes of research for high-touch versus low-touch cultures 2) name three benefits of massage for children; and 3) demonstrate two massage techniques.
