My life's work revolves around touch and it's impact on our mental and physical wellbeing. The sense that increases human bonding, positive endorphins, and hormones is the most regulated due to cultural expectations and norms. There are further avenues to explore in this arena. My interests are in the cultural evolution of touch in society, traditional and indigenous healing methods including Global Massage and touch therapy techniques - Native American, India, African, Latin America, European including but not limited to Japanese Onsen, Ayurveda, Mayan abdominal massage, Temazcal, Zanzibari women's wedding traditions, Turkish/Russian/Moroccan/Moor traditional bathhouses and how these rites carry over into our modern wellbeing model
