The Human Hand

"No single therapeutic agent can be compared in efficiency with this familiar but perfect tool...

The Human Hand

It is pre-eminently the instrument of the artist in all departments.

The hand is an ever present agent of skill....It is capable of infinite adaptation....

If half as much research had been expended on the principles governing manual treatment as upon pharmacology, the hand would be esteemed today on a par with drugs in acceptability and power....

- J. Mason Taylor M.D. (1908)

 

LRS note - The hand provides direct relief for that condition known as "skin hunger", that need for touch which everyone knows, but often ignores.
