Kind Touch Characters

🌟 Meet Annie. In this pic she’s cradling her face with her hands. 🌟

As a child, I found solace in holding my face in my hands. It was an instinctual act of self-soothing, offering gentle support that my body intuitively knew I needed. Little did I realize then, the profound impact this simple gesture could have on releasing stress and tension, especially within the jaw and face. πŸ’†β€β™€οΈ

Many of us carry stress in our jaw and face, often without even realizing it. Clenched teeth, tight jaws, furrowed brows – these are common manifestations of the body’s response to trauma and stress. But through the gentle practice of Kind Touch, we can begin to unravel these patterns of tension and find relief. 🌿 

In my work, I’ve observed how early trauma can heighten our ability to unconsciously sense tension in others’ faces and jaws, a skill known as ‘neurocepting’. This hyper-awareness serves as a form of self-protection, but it can also lead to chronic bracing and discomfort. πŸ’‘πŸ‘οΈβ€πŸ—¨οΈ

That’s where Kind Touch comes in. With comforting and gentle self-touch, we can soften the grip of tension, release the jaw, and allow the face to rest in gentle repose. By cradling our face in our hands, we offer ourselves the nurturing support we may have longed for, whispering words of reassurance and kindness to soothe our frayed nervous system. πŸ’«

So, take a moment to notice any tightness or bracing in your face. Then, try the Hands Cradling Face Kind Touch hold. Feel the connection between your hands and your jaw, your cheeks, your temples. Allow yourself to release, to soften, to breathe. 🌬️

If you’d like, you can purchase a set of cards that include these characters as a reminder of 8 different holds to keep close by in a pocket or purse. Go to this link πŸ‘‰

You are supported. You are safe. You are worthy of this moment of ease and relaxation. Embrace the healing power of Kind Touch, and let Annie and her friends guide you on your journey towards greater well-being. πŸ’–
