Machines Will Never Replace Massage Therapists
From factories to car park attendants to even aeroplanes, everything is slowly being replaced by machine. However would you let a machine give you a massage?
Along with hairdressers, massage is one those things you would preferably have a human do. Even if a robot was invented to do this task, many would still prefer a human. The reason for this is that humans like to be touched by fellow humans.
We are social beings and like to have connection to other humans. While some of that connection can come from having conversations, touch also plays an important role in human communication. Studies have shown that people who get regular touch from other humans often have lower blood pressure than those that don’t. Touch can make people feel more optimistic. It can also help develop a trusting attitude towards others, which assists in reducing tension in our relationships and our daily lives.
Scientists are only just discovering how truly important it is to exercise all our physical senses for proper brain and emotional development. Don’t let yourself get too busy that you starve yourself of touch, go for a massage (from a human being) now!
