The Power of touch can not be overstated.
In an article on the importance of touch, author Crystal Leonard states,
Touch is by far the most interesting and necessary of the "five senses." Any movement requires an acute awareness of one’s own body which is gained through proprioception, an internal form of tactile sense. The sense of touch develops before all other senses in embryos and is the main way in which infants learn about their environment and bond with other people. This sense never turns off or takes a break, and it continues to work long after the other senses fail in old age. Throughout life, people use their sense of touch to learn, protect themselves from harm, relate to others, and experience pleasure. Interestingly, positive touch from others is necessary for an individual’s healthy development. Despite the presence of all other life requirements, without this positive touch infants will fail to thrive.

Poverty, fear and stress has a profound and pervasive effect on the growth and development of healthy bodies and healthy brains. The lack of touch in our culture is so pervasive we do not even notice.
Massage/and nurturing is one of the most powerful ways to reverse this damage and grow healthy brains.
