Modern humans sleep on cushioned beds, wear shoes and multiple layers of clothing during the day, and communicate with far away friends and family via text. Our ancient ancestors on the other hand slept on the ground, felt the sun on their shoulders, walked barefoot across the earth, and communicated with friends and family face to face. While the differences between these two scenarios are multitude, there is one aspect of our physiology that spans the entirety of these interactions as well as approximately 22 square feet of our body surface. It is our skin and the tactile sense that it embodies. As an antidote to this modern day deficit of touch, we can establish habits that reconnect us to our skin and enliven our tactile sense. These habits, which include massage and barefoot walking, provide an interesting, informative, and oftentimes pleasureable pathway to greater health and vitality.
