Touch is our first language and a great way to connect through massage

Why do it?

  • Massage is relaxing for everyone
  • Massage teaches us about gentle and safe touch
  • touch is a great way to connect and show love
  • Touch is the ‘mother of all senses’, and ‘loving touch is baby’s first language’.

How to do it

You’ll need: Sore feet or shoulders, a cozy space and some moisturiser or massage oil if you want.

  1. Make your room nice and cozy. Maybe light some candles and put on some relaxing music.
  2. Take turns giving a little foot, back or shoulder rub!

Ask if it feels ok. Massage should be gentle and feel good.
