Why Do We Crave Touch?

The need for touch is something everyone can relate with, especially in a time when so many of us are social distancing. Touch is important for your overall health and well-being and a lack of touch can be detrimental to someone’s emotional and physical health. 

Whether it be holding your significant others hand, getting a deep tissue massage, or trying on a new piece of jewelry, the feeling we get when our body is touched is something that humans have experienced since the beginning of time. Touch is something that is highly satisfying, especially when we are talking about wellness and the human body. Touch has been used for centuries in medical and therapeutic environments with first recorded uses being over 25 centuries ago. 

When your body is touched, it releases a series of chemical responses that can decrease the amount of stress hormones in the body while boosting the body’s seratonin and dopamine levels. These 2 neurotransmitters are produced by your body and are responsible for regulating many of your body’s functions. 

Massage is a type of touch that has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and can also decrease the amount of Cortisol in the body. Cortisol plays a major role in the bodies response to stress and other trauma.

Did you know that touch can also boost your body’s immune capabilities? When your skin is touched, your body builds up its defensive capabilities against common germs and viruses. When toxins enter your body through the skin, your immune systems cytotoxic capacity gets elevated and T Cells are created to fight a potential illness or sickness. Without touch, would our body know the difference between good and bag germs and toxins? Likely not!
