In this presentation, we are excited to introduce to you the possibilities, value, benefits of using virtual touch. We will provide simple step-by-step instructions on how to incorporate the beginning experience of touch into your sessions or with others you want to connect with. A significant portion of the presentation will be dedicated to a demo from which you can experience and learn from.
Covid-19’s arrival has disrupted one of the ways that we touch our clients, that is, physically with our hands. This loss of physical contact creates tremendous anxiety because gentle, caring touch is the bedrock of safety. It allows for and promulgates the release of oxytocin which is a critical hormone that ameliorates sensations of feeling unsafe.
In response to this loss, we turned to the myriad of other ways we could still provide touch for our clients in order to bridge the isolation that sheltering at home was creating. We are now doing virtual sessions across the globe and have come to the recognition that virtual touch is an efficient and effective way to heal during Covid times and even when Covid becomes a distant memory. Possibilities abound!
