Nurture – the value of touch

We are all born knowing the value of touch.

When we hurt ourselves as a child, our parents would “rub it better”.

We rub our cold hands together to bring warmth.

When someone is upset we reach out with a comforting hand.


nurture is about making the most of that instinct.

Nurturing our babies, helping their little bodies grow and develop and building our relationship with them.

Nurturing ourselves, helping our minds relax and our bodies restore themselves.

Recognising that in a busy world we need to take time to reconnect, and touch can help us do that.
