OBJECTIVE: Our sense of touch is all around us, yet we rarely think about it. As one of our five senses, touch helps us understand our world through a complex sensory system of receptors that transmit data from stimuli to the brain. But touch is much more than this. Through human contact, our sense of touch is completely and integrally connected to how we feel and how we communicate. This is probably why we call our emotions feelings.
Through touch, we bond with others, we gain warm feelings, and build a sense of trust. The power of holding someone's hand, the message in a hug, the feeling of being caressed, the significance of a pat on the back, the meaning of a kiss, and the myriad of ways we make human contact are the basics of communication.
