The human body has special mechanisms that help it receive these cues to develop feeling of wellness or illness. However, how these receptors are transformed into actionable signals depend on the interpretation by different individuals. In short, the healing power of touch is manipulated by psychology.
The healing ability of touch comes from the bonds developed in relationships. These bonds have a healing ability and are referred to as healing bonds. These healing bonds can act in the form of physical touch, presence, and the "soul to soul" relationship. The physical touch can be a pat on the back from your teacher or a hug from your parents, which can finally lead to miraculous healing effects. In addition to this, the mere presence of your loved ones is also blessed with healing powers. When you are in the company of your loved ones, your system gets signals of truth and love. These signals are positive and will help in overcoming day-to-day worries and problems.
Last but not least is the soul to soul relationship. It can be parent-child or teacher-student, but all these relationships bond at the level of the soul. Soul to soul contact will help in developing connections that will establish the "touch of love."
